The largest of Huron County's nine municipalities, Huron East is a composite of productive farmland, innovative technology, medical research, and a strong entrepreneurial spirit, positioning itself strategically within competitive markets. Huron East has something for everyone offering investors and newcomers an attractive choice to relocate.

Its natural and built heritage is unmistakable, gracefully cloaking the towns, hamlets and open countryside that complement Huron East. Vanastra, a small community built on the historic site of a WWII air force training base, offers a good mix of residential and commercial development. Seaforth, with its wide main street and well-preserved 19th century architecture, provides ample parking for shoppers in its downtown business district. Only minutes from its core is "The Bridges of Seaforth", an adult lifestyle community, showcasing the best of rural and urban living, including a well appointed recreational facility and tennis courts, both overlooking a championship golf course. Located to the north of our municipality is the Village of Brussels, a vibrant agricultural and industrial hub, staged with magnificent old mansions and the idyllic Maitland River, which winds its way through well-kept residential neighbourhoods.

All of our communities are home to a multitude of service groups that actively promote and enhance the Huron East experience. Being a member of one of these groups is not only a great way to contribute to the future of Huron East, but to connect socially with others within the area.

Huron East offers indoor and outdoor swimming pools, ball diamonds, soccer fields, arenas, community centres, curling rinks, snowmobiling, and is home to two international sporting events, namely the Walton TransCan Motocross Championship and the Seaforth Country Classic, a Canadian Tour professional golf tournament. Not only is our community full of rich assets, it is in close proximity to theatres, beaches, airports, and world-class medical facilities. Undeniably, Huron East offers an attractive choice for young families, professionals who wish to live and work here, and those who choose to leave the rigours of city life and retire in our area.

Huron East is an unpretentious, resilient and caring community with an attractive blend of urban and country living. We invite you to make Huron East part of your future.

Sincerely,
Mayor Bernie MacLellan

I have lived in Huron East for the past 34 years. A few years ago my wife, Pam and I actually built the home that we now reside in. I am the proud father to three children, Sarah, Melissa (who penned this biography) and Alvin Jr. and their spouses, Darren, Paul and Jill, respectively. My best buddies are some of the greatest people you’d meet, my three grandsons: Lane, Nolan and Nate, my little granddaughter, Natalie, and my dog, Batista.

I am happily self-employed and operate an auto body repair business from my home. I have been serving on Council for the past 23 years. I began as a Councillor for Grey Township and progressed to Deputy Reeve. Currently, I represent Grey Ward residents as Councillor on Huron East. Some even say I am the George Clooneyist looking Councillor. Politics has run in my family, as both my parents have been active on Council in Morris Township. 

In addition to my position on Council, I am also an active member of the Maitland Valley Conservation Authority and the Brussels Medical Dental board. I have, in the past, been involved on the BM&G Rec Board. 

In the off chance I have spare time, you could find me chasing my Grandsons, snuggling Natalie, collecting Ford 8N tractors, antiquing, working on projects around the house or out driving with my wife.
