Many of the amenities that are available to the public include fine dining, museums that conserve and present the lifestyle of Norfolk County citizens in the 19th century, antique stores, and more. You can expect to find younger professionals and wealthy families occupying this area.

You can expect to find fisheries, mom & pop shops, fresh farm produce markets and hosting locations for many of the town’s annual festivals.

Real Estate Market

Eastern Norfolk County is where you can expect to find higher-end homes in terms of modern design and luxury.
There are a few low-rise condos for sale but they are quite few in number, as well as cheap bachelor apartments for rent that are better suited towards those who have a low budget for housing costs. With that being said, there are a few fully detached residential homes and semi-detached townhomes that are located on the outskirts of the busier areas.
West Norfolk County is rather rural in nature, and this is reflected by the low number of homes that are available. Properties are located a greater distance from one another. You can expect to find bungalows, mansions, and detached homes.
Compared to the East Norfolk County, most of the houses sport a traditional design on the inside and the outside. Additionally, properties are older in age and far less expensive. Even though Norfolk County is a rural town, this is a real estate market that is great for those who are looking for peace and quiet in their day-to-day lives.
The commute to the main areas of the town last 20-30 minutes by car, so there is never any major concern over having a lack of access to essential amenities and services.

Education

Education

Norfolk County’s small size does not make it friendly towards local opportunities for post-secondary education. For this reason, many students will travel to the major cities in Ontario or go out of province to attend university or college. With that being said, there are many opportunities for children currently in elementary school (K-8). There are currently 19 elementary schools that operate under the Grand Erie District School Board and 7 schools under the Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic District School Board. Each of these schools provide a high standard of education while having unique strengths that would make them more suitable for families that have certain goals in mind for their children.

Economic overview

In addition to the tourism, Norfolk County’s agricultural sector has always been responsible for maintain the town’s economic stability. Nicknamed as “Ontario’s Garden”, this town is one of the top producers of fresh farm produce in the province. The manufacturing and construction industries also play a large role in employing the labour force and contributing to the town’s economy. From a business standpoint, attractive features for prospective businesses include low property tax rates and a very high quality of life with respect to community safety. There is a great deal of untouched land that can be used to establish a new business location here. Their Community Improvement Plan (CIP) establishes grants that small businesses can use to start their company and gain some developmental traction. Based on these factors, projections show that Norfolk County will be an under-rated spot for starting new businesses and expanding those that currently exist.
