Clifford is a community in the Town of Minto in Wellington County, Ontario, Canada.

The village of Clifford was founded around 1855 as Minto Village.[1] After the opening of the post office in 1856, the settlement was renamed Clifford by the first postmaster Francis Brown after Clifford in West Yorkshire, England. Clifford was incorporated as a village in 1873. In 1999, Clifford was amalgamated with Palmerston, Harriston and Minto Township to create Minto.

Clifford is home to Wightman Telecom. The Wightman family has owned and operated a communication system in Clifford since 1908, with a telephone system that was originally operated out of a kitchen in Howick Township. The company is now involved heavily in high speed fiber-optic internet, cable, and telephone throughout mid-western Ontario.[2]
