Our Story

South Bruce is the gateway to Bruce County for travelers from southern Ontario and beyond. Here, you enter an area of rolling hills, scenic highways, and warm-hearted people. Welcome to Ontario's co-operative community! There was a time when you didn't have to give up on life to own a home. When business owners helped each other. When communities worked together to create shared prosperity. Yet in most places, that time is long past.

In South Bruce, life is different and we are expanding on out cooperative legacy and community business culture to ensure shared prosperity defines the future of this community as well as its past. We will create opportunities to come together as a business community and share expertise. We will match the cooperative spirit of our community with municipal services that are collaborative and helpful.

Our story is one of working together to create new opportunities - for the agri-food, specialized manufacturing and cultural business operators here - for the families that live here now and new families yet to arrive. South Bruce is the cooperative community - this is where you can make friends with your future!
