Town of Mono

lower-falls-monoNiagara Escarpment dissects the town and gives residents and visitors alike breathtaking views, kilometres of trails to invigorate the heart and soul and lots of opportunity for  tourism related businesses. Mono is the source of three rivers; the Humber and Credit that flow to Lake Ontario and the Nottawasaga that bends north to Georgian Bay. Its natural beauty makes Mono an attractive place for weekend escape from the city, but there are lots of business opportunities here as well.


island-lake-living-monoHighway 9 bounds Mono to the south and Highway 10 runs through the town providing plenty of space for light industrial and commercial development. These highways not only make for prime development, but are also the paths leading back to the city so products and services from Mono can make their way to market in the Greater Toronto Area or to Pearson Airport an hour’s drive away.

The town of Mono council is committed to economic growth that meets the  needs of Mono  Residents while maintaining the exceptional quality of life in the region. The Town actively supports community events in their many parks and community centres.
