A short drive from Kitchener/Waterloo, Stratford, and London, you will be smitten by North Perth's big-city attractions and small-town charm!

Located in the northern reaches of Perth County's beautiful and bountiful countryside, the town of Listowel and villages of Atwood, Monkton, and Gowanstown make up North Perth's diverse landscape.

North Perth is home to over 13,000 people and offers the perfect mix of lifestyle, employment, and business opportunities. As a significantly growing and thriving community, North Perth is home to a reputable hospital and medical facilities, dynamic business community, strong agricultural and industrial sector, quality childcare and education services, and a variety of recreation, leisure, culinary, and entertainment opportunities to satisfy all interests.

Italianate and Victorian architecture set the backdrop for Listowel's picturesque and historic downtown, which also boasts modern shopping and conveniences within a short walk of residential neighbourhoods. 

Discover hidden beauty along 22 km of hiking trails that link through North Perth. Our multi-use trails are a wonderful way to experience the local flora and fauna. Many enjoy the trails in all four seasons on foot or by cycling, horseback riding, skiing, or snowshoeing. North Perth's trail system stretches from Gowanstown to Listowel to Hefryn, through a diverse route of agricultural land, downtown cores, parks, and along former railways.
