A message from Mayor Inglis: “The Municipality of Brockton is a very diverse community encompassing a strong rural area, the Town of Walkerton, and several small villages. Walkerton is the County Town of Bruce County, and the home of the County Administration office, Provincial Courts, and a County Home for the aged, as well as other county and provincial offices. Walkerton is set in a beautiful valley with the Saugeen River running through it.
The Saugeen is recognized as one of the best fishing and canoeing rivers in North America. The farming community continues to be the economic driver in the region with some of the most modern farms, and some of the best land in the province. Brockton is a tourist destination for many because of our natural setting. People come for fishing, hunting, hiking, canoeing, heritage tours and much more.
Business and industry is vital to our community with companies such as Energizer, Larsen & Shaw, Price Schonstrom, and Bogden & Gross Furniture, and Hammonds. Brockton offers many opportunities for those wishing to come to work, live and play. We hope to see you in the near future.”
