Erin, Ontario

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Erin (population 11,000) is a town in Wellington County, approximately 80 kilometres northwest of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Erin is an amalgamated town, composed of the former Villages of Erin and Hillsburgh, and the hamlets of Ballinafad, Brisbane, Cedar Valley, Crewson's Corners, and Orton, as well as the former Township of Erin.

Erin is primarily a rural community but, while farming is still an important activity in the town, most of its population works in the nearby cities of Brampton, Mississauga, Guelph, and even Toronto. The town's new industrial park is attracting a number of new industries, due to its cheaper tax rate, accessibility to transportation, and its location within the "Technology Triangle," a series of high-tech driven cities including nearby Kitchener, Waterloo, and Cambridge.


In addition to the primary settlement of Erin, the town also includes the smaller communities of Ballinafad, Binkham, Brisbane, Cedar Valley, Churchill, Coningsby, Hillsburgh, Mimosa and Ospringe.


Erin revolves around its community centre, called Centre 2000. The building was added to the existing community centre. The facility now includes Erin District High School, 300 seat theatre, large double gym, arena, many community rooms, dentist, Optometrist library, daycare and many other features. It shows Erin's commitment to its community working together. Within the walls of Centre 2000 is Erin Cinema, located in the 300 seat theatre. It shows second run movies on weekends.

The town of Erin has a community radio station, CHES-FM.
