Economic Development

Open for Business!

The Town of Minto is located on the north-western boundary of Wellington County, well situated mid-way between the major centres of southern Ontario and popular recreational areas along the eastern shore of Lake Huron and southern Georgian Bay. It is only a 1 to 1 1/2 hours drive from the municipality to Canada's "Golden Horseshoe" industrial heartland, like Toronto and Hamilton, and under an hour to Kitchener-Waterloo and Guelph. The City of Owen Sound offers Great Lakes port and shipping facilities, as does the Town of Goderich situated approximately 100 kilometres to the southwest.

As strong supporters of economic development, the Council of the Town of Minto is proud of its reputation of being "open for business".

We've built this reputation by:

  • providing businesses with the tools and resources you need locally to be successful;
  • finding new ways to reduce barriers for our business and help you make things happen;
  • developing partnerships; and
  • providing support to the Minto Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Revitalization Committees

We appreciate the businesses in our community that are helping make the Town of Minto a place Where Your Family and Your Business Belong.
