The Township of Brock is situated 95 kilometres northeast of the City of Toronto. It is known as Durham Region’s “Gateway to the North”. This predominantly rural township does have three small urban centres: Beaverton, Cannington, and Sunderland. Beaverton is the largest community in the township and is located the farthest north, off Highway 12. Beaverton is situated on the shores of Lake Simcoe. The Beaver River and the railway both make their way through the centre of this quaint village.
Cannington is located about 10 minutes south of Beaverton off Highway 12. Heritage street signs proudly let visitors know they have reached this historic village. The Township of Brock municipal offices are located in Cannington, at 1 Cameron Street East. Further south off Highway 12 you will come upon the Village of Sunderland which is best known for its annual Maple Syrup Festival that attracts visitors from all over the region.
