We recognize the many opportunities and challenges for today's business owner.  Township staff are available to help navigate the world of building permits, forms, licences and applications - we want to support your efforts, initiative and investment in our community.

The Township is ideally situated half way between Toronto and Kingston, located just north of Cobourg and Highway 401, northward to the south shore of Rice Lake.  Easy access is available  from two Highway 401 exits  472 (Burnham Street) and 474 (Division Street).

Zoning by-laws have been revamped to promote small business and home business startups. Agribusiness is tremendously important to the area and there are many roadside and farm gate locations as well as businesses, where you can purchase fresh local meats, produce and other agricultural products.

Both developed and undeveloped lots are available for those looking to buy or build a country home.

The Township and many businesses in our community are members of and support the Northumberland Central Chamber of Commmerce.
