An Order of Amalgamation (PDF) which took effect on January 1, 1998 created the Township of South Frontenac. The amalgamation combined the former Townships of Bedford, Loughborough, Portland and Storrington. The 2011 Census indicated that South Frontenac has a population of 18,113 with 8,836 dwellings. The 2011 Census also indicated that we have 13,900 within the working age of 15 to 65 with the median age being 44.7 years! 

In January 2018, the Township reflected on the 20 years of progress and what has been accomplished since amalgamation, review the changes here

The 2016 Census indicated that South Frontenac has a population of 18,646 with 9.213 dwellings which represents an increase of 2.9%.


The Township is comprised of 4 districts, which follow the former township municipal boundaries. Please see the district maps.(PDF).
