A unique combination of urban amenities and a friendly, rural lifestyle make Huron County the perfect place for business and family. Our population base is small – 60,000 people throughout our many towns, villages, hamlet, and rural countryside. In fact, we are one of the most “rural” areas in Ontario.
As such, Huron County has all of the modern amenities without the annoyances of large urban centres, like overcrowding and traffic problems. With less than 20 stoplights in all of Huron County, traffic congestion just doesn’t happen here.
Our lifestyle is rooted in our sense of heritage, our vibrant, diverse economy, and a long-standing tradition of neighbour helping neighbour. There are many opportunities for community involvement — from agricultural societies to service clubs; artists’ guilds to chambers of commerce; faith groups to school boards and municipal councils.
Huron’s unique location and mild climate continue to draw visitors and new residents every year. Huron County is within an easy 20- to 40-minute drive from Stratford, Kitchener, London, and Sarnia; Toronto is a 2.5-hour drive away. The climate of Huron County is one of the mildest of any region in Canada due to the moderating effects of Lake Huron.
