Welcome to Hamilton Township



The Township of Hamilton is located approximately half way between Toronto and Kingston and is accessible by Hwy. 401 at Exit 472 (Burnham Street) and Exit 474 (Division Street).

You will enjoy the beautiful scenery, rolling hills and rich history that lie between Rice Lake to the north and Lake Ontario to the south. The pleasant hamlets, bed and breakfasts, and resorts offer a wide variety of sports, recreation and sightseeing.

The Township forms part of the Oak Ridges Moraine with scenic views, forests, trails and an abundance of natural wonders.




On behalf of Hamilton Township Council, it is hoped that this web site will be informational for our residents and that it will keep them informed and updated on Township business as well as coming events and notices.

On behalf of Council and the residents, it is also my pleasure to extend greetings to visitors to this area. I hope that while you are here, you will take the time to tour the Township of Hamilton from Rice Lake to Lake Ontario. You will find a variety of attractions from resorts to historic sites. Most of all, you will meet friendly people along the way and enjoy memorable experiences.

The Township is a vibrant and exciting place to live, work and visit. It provides a wide range of housing and commercial establishments while preserving the historical rural charm of the past. It provides an opportunity to seek an alternative to urban life.

The Township's vision is to continue to have the social and cultural values that have evolved through time: a community spirit, a sense of belonging, a tradition of self-reliance, social responsibility, sharing, neighbourliness, and an appreciation of heritage and culture. The quality of life prevails through a combination of preserving the Township's natural heritage features and new economic opportunities.

For visitors, we hope that you enjoy your time here and that you will come again.
