The Municipality

The municipality (rural township) of Wilmot (19,223 inhabitants in 2011; 26,372 ha) is located in south-western Ontario.

Wilmot Township was designated a Crown Reserve following the Canada Act of 1791 which created Upper and Lower Canada. Following a government survey in 1824, Mennonites from Waterloo Township and Amish from Europe claimed lots and began clearing roadways and farms. The Canada Land Company opened the Huron Road through the southern part of Wilmot Township in 1828. Soon after, Roman Catholics and Lutherans from Alsace and Germany, Anglicans from the British Isles and others joined the initial settlers in clearing land and building roads, mills, shops, churches, schools and villages. The names of Wilmot communities provide great insight into the pioneers who settled them. We can connect with where they were from, whom they were and, in at least one instance, the industries therein established: Baden, Haysviille, Holland Mills, Mannheim, Josephsburg, New Dundee, New Hamburg, New Prussia, Petersburg, Philipsburg, Pinehill, Punkeydoodle's Corners, Rosebank, St. Agatha, Shingletown, Waldau, and Wilmot Centre.

[The image from the Register shows the flag with proportions 2:3 but the grant describes the flag as a "Canadian pale"; accordingly, the flag, if ever used, must be in 1:2 proportions]
