Welcome

Mayor Delbert (Deb) Shewfelt

Let me take this opportunity to welcome you to the Port of Goderich, Canada's prettiest Town.  Located on Ontario's West Coast, Goderich is approximately 230 km west of Toronto or 130 km north of Sarnia and the US Border.

Goderich boasts some of the best sunsets in North America, which can be viewed while strolling our 1 1/2 km long beach front Boardwalk.

Goderich has much to offer every interest, all year round.  For the sports enthusiast we offer excellent swimming, fishing, scuba diving, golfing, hockey, baseball, soccer, tennis, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, an airport with two paved runways as well as a modern, picturesque harbour and marinas.

Special events and attractions are scheduled throughout the year.  Such events and attractions include: The Saturday Farmers' Market and the Sunday "Flea Market" located in Courthouse Park during the summer months, Canada Day Celebrations, Festival of Arts and Crafts, and Piping Down the Sun  to name a few.  Goderich is also known for the Celtic Roots Festival, which is held every year at Lion's Harbour Park.  The Festival also includes Celtic College for all those who wish to enrich their Celtic interests.  Various sporting events are also hosted year round.  The most internationally known sporting event is the Young Canada Week Pee Wee Hockey Tournament, which brings Pee Wee Hockey Teams from all over the country to compete in this internationally known Hockey Tournament.

If you need assistance in locating any of our services or, to find business information for Goderich, businesses are represented by an active Chamber of Commerce, which can be reached at (519) 440-0176.  Visit our Tourist Information Centre, located on Highway 21, Victoria Street, Goderich at (519) 524-6600, for personal, friendly assistance.

Yours truly,

Mayor Delbert (Deb) Shewfelt
