The Town of Minto is located on the north-western boundary of Wellington County, well situated mid-way between the major centres of southern Ontario and popular recreational areas along the eastern shore of Lake Huron and southern Georgian Bay. It is only a 1 to 1 1/2 hours drive from the municipality to Canada's "Golden Horseshoe" industrial heartland, like Toronto and Hamilton, and under an hour to Kitchener-Waterloo and Guelph. The City of Owen Sound offers Great Lakes port and shipping facilities, as does the Town of Goderich situated approximately 100 kilometers to the southwest.
