Mildmay is a community in the Municipality of South Bruce, Bruce County, Ontario, Canada. Mildmay is located northwest of Minto and south of Walkerton on Highway 9. Formosa lies to the northwest, and Neustadt to the east.

Mildmay, "the lamplighter village" is a very close-knit community of Christian English and German descendants. The Cheese Haus is a well-known store in Mildmay, selling cheese and other goodies.

In 2007 Mildmay built a new medical clinic to house its new Doctor and Family Health Team professionals. Over $850,000. was donated by local residents and service clubs to fund this project.

Shortly before Christmas every year the town has an annual "Hanging of the Green" festival and parade to celebrate the beginning of the Christmas Season. This lighted night parade is a family friendly event that boasts of free apple cider, a live nativity scene, Rotary sausages for a price and offers kids a chance to meet Santa. Also, the choir from Mildmay Carrick Public School sing christmas carols in front of the post office. The parade consists of close to 80 floats and live bands. People from the surrounding communities come to Mildmay to witness this event. Mildmay boasts one lone LCBO, and Stewarts, a market supplying the Mildmayan's with their needs. Mildmay has a large selection of lawn tractors and bicycles, circa 1900's. On your way through perhaps you should pick one up on Absalom street, ask for Jimmy.

Mildmay's "Hanging of the Green" was one of the many reasons for placing 1st in their division of the Canada wide "Winter Lights Competition".

Mildmay is home to the Mildmay-Carrick Public School. The school serves students from kindergarten through grade eight.

The town also has the Sacred Heart Catholic school. Sacred Heart is split into junior and senior divisions which overall cover from grades Junior-Kindergarten to grade 8.

Never a dull moment, Mildmay has a skatepark, a heart-shaped pond, and groundhog hill ( a perfect place to enjoy some winter sledding).
