On January 1, 1998, an Order of Amalgamation created the Township of South Frontenac. The amalgamation combined the former Townships of Bedford, Loughborough, Portland and Storrington. Since that time, the Township has grown to be a vibrant, progressive rural municipality. According to the latest Statistics Canada census data from 2021, we now have more than 20,188 residents, which represents a change of 8.3% from 2016. This compares to the provincial average of 5.8% and the national average of 5.2%.

Facts and figures

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