The project will be divided into multiple stages, and the first phase will start at the north end of Parkhill Main Street near the Parkhill reservoir and Parkhill Drive.

Detours and traffic control plans will be implemented to help drivers navigate the area.

Sharing Roads with Farm Equipment

It's that time of year where farmers are working to harvest their crops. Its a time when slow-moving farm tractors, harvesters, and other related equipment, have to travel on municipal and county roadways at all times of the day and night.

Motorists are reminded to share the roads and to drive safely. Sharing the road with farm vehicles is a necessity if you travel in rural Ontario. Please be courteous, be patient and be cautious. Remember, aggressive driving isn't just unsafe, it's against the law. Aggresive drivers should be reported to police.

We ask you to do your part to keep our roadways safe.

Updates from the Parks and Recreation Department

We will begin winterizing our parks after thanksgiving weekend, meaning our public washrooms and splash pads will no longer be open in our parks.


The Ailsa Craig Dog Park is an official go. The Pilot project will commence once the infrastructure is secured and installed. A friendly reminder to all users to obey the posted signage.

Youth programming is returning this Fall through our YMCA, so be sure to keep an eye on the North Middlesex YMCA Facebook page for exciting program information and registration information.

We are very excited that the North Middlesex Arena is in full swing! Kudos go out to the design team at the NM Parks and Recreation Department for the unique center line this year! If you haven't had a chance to see this, check out the attached video.

Action Financial Group

150 Ailsa Craig Main St (Lower Level)

"The building is certainly a little different than it used to be and hopefully makes Main Street look a little better in the process. We are looking to finally provide some stability to the revolving small business door it previously was. All indications so far are positive and should continue to improve as our name becomes more and more associated with the town and provides proper and appropriate financial advice." 

-David Dryburgh, Investment Advisor at Action Financial Group.
