Haldimand County

Haldimand is a single-tier municipality (but called a county) on the Niagara Peninsula in southern Ontario, on Lake Erie, and on the Grand River. The county seat is Cayuga.


The main centres in Haldimand are Jarvis, Hagersville, Caledonia, Cayuga, and Dunnville. Note: part of the Six Nations Reserve is in Haldimand County, but not within its jurisdiction.


Haldimand's history has been closely associated with that of the neighbouring Norfolk County. Haldimand was first created as a county in 1800, from a portion of Norfolk. It was named after the governor of the Province of Quebec Sir Frederick Haldimand. The two counties were separate until 1974, when they were reunited as the Regional Municipality of Haldimand-Norfolk.


In 2001, the counties were separated again. Although they both retain the name "county" for historical reasons, each is governed as a single municipality, with no formal level of government below that of the county, and thus neither is a true county.
