ABOUT the Municipality of Huron East
The Municipality of Huron East, a short drive from the shores of Lake Huron, embodies three historic settlements surrounded by productive agricultural lands. The Town of Seaforth, the largest of its urban centres, is unique in the fact that it is one of the oldest heritage conservation districts in Ontario with a vibrant downtown core. In 2008, the municipality took a more active role in the development of its local economy by engaging a full-time economic development officer. Since then, the profile of the community has been heightened through the execution and promotion of award-winning economic development initiatives. Huron East continues to lead by example throughout rural Ontario.
