Overview
Northumberland County is a vibrant community known for its exceptional quality of life. Located 50 minutes east of Toronto,
Northumberland County is situated between Toronto and Montreal, Canada's two largest metropolitan centres with a combined population of
over 9 million. These regions are connected by the four-to-eight lane toll free Highway 401 which runs through the heart of Northumberland
County and is accessible from all communities therein.
The communities of Northumberland are different sizes and offer a multitude of services and amenities. Excellent health care, a low crime rate,
and superb educational facilities make Northumberland a great place for young families looking for an alternative lifestyle from the urban
centres. Northumberland has everything a person could possibly need from shopping malls and movie theatres to excellent parks, nature trails,
and internationally renowned water sports.
A diverse industrial, commercial, and agricultural economic base already exists in Northumberland County. With its low cost of living, low
unemployment rate, and easy access to Canada's largest toll-free highway, Northumberland is the ideal place for industrial and commercial
development and expansion. With a population of 77,500, in 2001, and over 800,000 people within 30 minutes, Northumberland County has
major business expansion potential. Northumberland County has also been identified as an outer ring area in the Greenbelt Plan. This
designation ensures growth in the next 30 years and with this growth comes many business opportunities.
