We love Dufferin County! We can’t help but brag about it as there are so many appealing aspects including the people, restaurants, culture, small businesses and the beautiful nature that surrounds us. As real estate professionals, we can tell you many buyers are looking to move to Dufferin County to experience all it has to offer. Our clients that have moved from other areas have found our community to be welcoming and easily transition to their new home and town. We would like to highlight our top five favourite features.
We are constantly overwhelmed by the generosity of the people in our community. We have had the privilege to be involved in many charity events, even hosting some of our own too. The people in Dufferin County always step up and support one another. We have seen great work by many dedicated community members.
We are so fortunate to be surrounded by a large number of conservation areas, especially during this past year. Our community has access to many trails for walking, hiking, biking and cross-country skiing. How many places can say they have as stunning an area as Island Lake right in the middle of their town? You can find more trails behind Monora Pavilion as well as quick access to sections of the Bruce Trail. Throughout all seasons, Dufferin County offers the most beautiful landscape.

Our community has an eclectic assortment of talented and artistic people. Orangeville’s downtown core is an excellent example including the carved sculptures and beautifully painted utility boxes. They are truly works of art.We have some of the best theatre productions that attract spectators from all over. I think we are all looking forward to the return of the festivals and events the Town of Orangeville hosts throughout the year. We were fortunate that some of them pivoted to a social distance format this past year. For a listing of events, we hope to see this year click on Town of Orangeville Festivals and Events
