Ontario Locator

The following list shows every municipality in Ontario (city, town, village, township, regional municipality) and all of the geographic townships which have belonged to a municipality. In other words everything that has or had a local government is here. The information came from two OGS publications. Dunford Municipal Records in Ontario: History and Guide OGS (2005) lists every Ontario municipality. Gartner and Prong Townships of the Province Of Ontario, Canada OGS (2007) lists all townships. Current and historical townships came from that book, but not the unorganized townships. You should refer to these books for more detail.

The "Type" column tells you what sort of municipality it is, generally its current status. There are two types of townships. A geographic township (G Twp) is a piece of land. You need to know this to find land records and to find where people lived. An administrative township (A Twp) is a form of government, often administering several geographic townships. You need this to find local records. RM means Regional Municipality.

Early names for many municipalities are given.

The list also shows the county and the OGS Branch the municipality is in.

At a future date the list will be expanded to include the former Police Villages and the current hamlets.
