Move to Minto

Updated: May 23, 2024

The Town of Minto is located in the north-western boundary of Wellington County, and is composed of the former Towns of Harriston and Palmerston, the former Village of Clifford, and surrounding rural area of the former Minto Township. When you move to Minto, you’re only an hour from the major centres of southern Ontario –including Kitchener-Waterloo and Guelph – and popular recreational areas along the eastern shore of Lake Huron and southern Georgian Bay.

An hour from the city, and an hour to the beach. What more could you ask for?

Home is belonging. Are you ready to call Minto home?
