Howick, Ontario

The Township of Howick is a municipality in Huron County, Ontario, Canada. It is located on the northeast corner of Huron County near the Bruce County border, east of Wingham.

The significant urban communities are Fordwich, Gorrie and Wroxeter. Smaller hamlets include Belmore and Lakelet. Rural areas comprise the remainder of the township. Its municipal offices are located in Gorrie.

Howick Township is one of the four Huron County Townships created out of the Queen's Bush by the Wilkinson survey of 1847, although the Township celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2006. The first settler arrived in 1851, the next in 1853 and others began arriving in 1854. [ Township of Howick Profile accessed February 13, 2008]

During a series of municipal amalgamations in Ontario through the 1990s and ending in 2001, the Township of Howick boundaries remained unchanged.

Howick Township's population as of the 2001 Canadian census was 3779. [ [] ]


A very small distance of Highway 9 travels through the extreme northeast corner of Howick Township. Otherwise, no provincial highways serve the township.

Huron Road 86 (formerly Highway 86) travels along the southern border of Howick.

Gorrie and Wroxeter are located on Huron Road 87 (formerly Highway 87), a significant east-west route through Howick. Fordwich is on Huron Road 30, a short distance from Huron Road 87.

Huron Road 12 on the western end of Howick serves Wroxeter and Belmore.

The remaining county roads in Howick are Huron Road 7 (east-west, through Lakelet) and Huron Road 28 (north-south, through Gorrie).
