Haldimand County beckons to investors who wish to capitalize on the opportunities offered by our $36 million tourism industry.
Each year, more than 600,000 visitors are drawn to Haldimand County to boat, windsurf, water ski, scuba dive and swim along the Lake Erie coastline—and surrender to the power, serenity and haunting beauty of the Grand River, which runs through Canada's only remaining Carolinian Forest pocket.
Visitors explore the county's unique, historical, picturesque communities, with their small town charm and friendliness. The 175-plus annual festivals, fairs and events offer something for all ages and interests!
Overnight visitor can stay at the County's 29 bed and breakfasts, country inns and motels. There are many friendly shops and restaurants—and eight museums and heritage sites, including Ruthven Park National Historic site.
Campers can pitch their tents in three provincial parks and 18 private campgrounds. There are eight conservation areas and an extensive multi-use trail system for hiking, birding and sightseeing.
The Southern Grand River and Lake Erie are a renowned fishing enthusiast's paradise. Its long automotive racing history makes Haldimand County a car buff's haven. And it is certainly a favourite of cyclists, photographers, artists, and golfers (with five courses and others in development). Other area outdoor adventure opportunities include canoeing, kayaking and horseback riding.
Tourism contributes about $17 million labour income and $1 million in commercial taxes to our economy. We would be delighted to help you locate your tourism business here!
