Mayor’s Welcome

Welcome to the Town of Erin!


Beside the RiverWe are located about 80 kilometres northwest of Toronto, in the province of Ontario. There are approximately 11,000 people in Erin, and we are primarily a rural municipality.

Farming is still an important economic activity, but most of our population works in the nearby cities of Brampton, Mississauga, Guelph, or even Toronto. The headwaters of two major rivers, the Credit and the Grand, rise in our municipality, and we are blessed with rolling hills, forested valleys, and a beautiful countryside.

The Town is composed of the villages of Erin and Hillsburgh, and the hamlets of Ballinafad, Brisbane, Cedar Valley, Crewson’s Corners and Orton, all of which were in the former Township of Erin until amalgamation in 1998.

If you happen to be traveling through our Town, and you don’t want to be marked as a foreigner, pronounce it “Earin”, not “Airin”.

Our industrial area is filling up quickly and our main street shopping has become a major destination for people from the city. We now boast a community radio station MIX 88.1 on the FM dial.

Recreation is an important component of a healthy lifestyle and our “Centre 2000” includes an arena, a theatre, library, tennis courts and space for community support programs in conjunction with a high school. At Barbour Field we have 7 soccer fields to support the more than 800 young soccer players in our community and also 2 well-used baseball diamonds.

Welcome to our town, a friendly place, where all can feel at home.

Allan Alls

Mayor, Town of Erin
