About Simcoe

Simcoe, Ontario

 

 

 

 

Simcoe is an unincorporated community and former town in Southwestern OntarioCanadalocated near Lake Erie. It is the county seat and largest community of Norfolk County. Simcoe is located at the junction of Highway 3, at Highway 24, due south of Brantford, and accessible toHamilton by nearby Highway 6.

History 

 

 

 

 


Simcoe was founded in 1795 by Lieutenant Governor John Graves Simcoe. Simcoe was incorporated as the Corporation of the Town of Simcoe in 1878 and had its own town council andmayor until December 31, 2000. In 2001, the town and all other municipalities within the Regional Municipality of Haldimand-Norfolk were dissolved and the region was divided into two single tier municipalities with city-status but called counties. Simcoe now forms Ward 5 of Norfolk County.

As a part of Haldimand-Norfolk County during the 20th century, passed their first tree conservation by-law in 1947. This law was recently revised in 2000 as a part of Norfolk County's Forestry Act. Around 350 applications for tree cutting permits are sent to Norfolk council per year. For every 100 acres of undeveloped land in Norfolk County, more than 25 of those acres are considered to be forested. Most of these forests can be found within 10 miles or 16 kilometres of downtown Simcoe and are open for exploration except during periods of heavy snow.



 

 

Housing and neighborhoods

 

 

 

 

The monthly rent of a typical apartment in Simcoe ranges from 450 Canadian dollars per month (for a bachelor apartment in a working classneighborhood) to 1,000 Canadian dollars per month (for a 3-bedroom apartment in a newer and more posh neighborhood). Monthly utilities for an apartment of 85 square metres or 910 square feet in this community costs around 114.37 Canadian dollars per month; that includes heat, electricity, water, and sewer. The average annual income of a Simcoe resident is 48,000 Canadian dollars after taxes. While the monthly cost of rent in a rented apartment is considered to be very cheap by global standards, the typical cost of eating out at a restaurant in this community can vary from being reasonable to expensive; this depends primarily on the genre of the establishment and the type of food products being used in the preparation. Fast food restaurants and Chinese restaurants tend to be reasonable while Italian restaurants and pizza places tend to be expensive.

Many of the more modern, newly-built homes in Simcoe are situated in the area surrounding Mann Avenue (42.842587°N 80.283905°W); these kind of family homes tend to sell on private sales for up to 370,000 Canadian dollars. Houses constructed in this neighborhood range from being built in 2002 to 2010.

Norfolk Street tends to be the dividing road between the "haves" and the "have nots" in this community. Most houses west of Norfolk Street are aging dilapidated buildings that rarely sell for a price greater than 200,000 Canadian dollars while most houses east of Norfolk Street are ultramodern structures like those seen on Mann Avenue. Throughout the late 20th and early 21st centuries, the western part of Simcoe have generally been described as a neighborhood for the working class, the unemployed and pensioners while the white collar elite have basically settled in the eastern neighborhoods of Simcoe; particularly near the Queensway. These people typically range from doctors and lawyers to office workers and nurses. Exceptions to this rule can be found on Millcroft Drive and Miller Crescent (west of Norfolk Street) in addition to Arthur Street (east of Norfolk Street). Metcalfe Street (in the northwestern part of town) and Parker Drive (in the southwestern portion of town) are also considered to be one of the most affluent and safest streets in the western end of Simcoe.

The average age of a Simcoe resident as of 2011 is 48 years of age; the average male is 47 years old while the average female is 50 years old. While almost 6,000 people who live in this communirty are legally married as of 2011, a substantial amount of people who never became spouses exist in Simcoe; nearly 3,000 people in Simcoe have remained single and never engaged in a legal or common-law form of marriage. English is spoken the most frequently in Simcoe; with Ojibway and several Eastern European languages spoken by a tiny minority of the residents.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Transportation and tourism 

 

 

 


In 1886 the South Norfolk Railway constructed a line from Hamilton, Ontario, to Port Rowan, Ontario, that stopped in Simcoe. The train operated until 1965. Economic considerations in addition to rising energy and fuel prices are what basically killed the train operations in Norfolk County during the latter portion of the 20th century.

A local transit program is centred around Simcoe and helps to serve the major communities of Norfolk County. It costs an average of 25,000 Canadian dollars for a budget four-person vehicle in Simcoe (either a Volkswagen Golf or an equivalent from either Chevrolet, Toyota, or Ford).

There are 50 hotels and bed and breakfast properties within a reasonable driving distance of Simcoe's downtown core; having on-peak rates of anywhere between $97/night to $150/night in addition to off-peak rates ranging from $55/night to $129/night.

country club was established in Simcoe by Duncan Campbell in 1895 called the Norfolk County Golf and Country Club. It originally excluded ladies from membership and hard liquor from being consumed until 1912 when the club had to get incorporated. When it first became a co-educational golf club, ladies had the "privilege" of paying $4 to access the facilities while the gentlemen had to pay a handsome $15 to be entitled to full privileges. This country club still stands today and visitors are encouraged to acquire memberships before playing golf.
