Norfolk at a Glance

Norfolk County operates as a largely rural, single-tier municipality, which was restructured in 2001 to encompass a number of smaller communities. These communities include various Townships and six urban centres: Courtland, Delhi, Port Dover, Port Rowan, Simcoe and Waterford.

Norfolk is a vast community, encompassing over 1,600 km2 of land and 142 km of Lake Erie shoreline. This land is shared by approximately 64,000 residents who call Norfolk home. Our population is roughly split between rural and urban, which is an important factor in determining how the County delivers services. In rural areas, services are provided under ever-increasing demands for accountability, improved delivery and cost management.

Managing Our Assets

Norfolk provides essential services for our communities, which enable us to deliver upon our Vision, Mission and Strategic Priorities. The sustainable delivery of these services is dependent on a wide range of assets that must be managed effectively and maintained in a good state of repair in order to meet expectations. The management of these assets is influenced by a range of factors that impact the cost-of-service delivery and requires the County to proactively coordinate its planning to balance expenditures, services, and risk across its diversified portfolio of assets – a process referred to as Asset Management.
