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 was born in the Township of Tuckersmith, raised in Grey Township, and for many years called the Village of Brussels my hometown. I have been married to my wife, Lin, for 43 years, who I am proud to say, was the first elected Mayor of Huron East. Together, we farmed for 3 years in McKillop Township and now reside in the Town of Seaforth, where we have lived at 112 West William Street for the past 22 years. It is fair to say that my roots let me lay claim to all five wards in Huron East.

Lin and I have one son, John, who along with his wife, Heather, are continuing with a family tradition of raising their children, Tanner, Davis and Charlee in the heart of rural Ontario, namely Huron East.

After working for Huron County's Highways Department for almost 35 years, I retired in 2004. In November of 2003, I was elected to the Huron East Council (Seaforth Ward), and re-elected for a second term in 2006. During both terms, I served on various boards. I've been a member of the Lions Club for over 25 years, both in Brussels and Seaforth, as well as being an active member of Branch 156 Royal Canadian Legion Seaforth. Furthermore, I served on the Board of Directors for the Ontario Trillium Foundation from 2003 to 2009.

As the elected Deputy Mayor, I am pleased to be one of three representatives from our municipality, who will serve on Huron County Council for the next four years. A keen interest in local politics, coupled with my past work experience at the County level, has schooled me in the details of the day-to-day operations, ultimately providing a better understanding of budget restraints that affect both tiers of our local government. My motto as Deputy Mayor is, "It is not about the money we collect, it's how we spend it."

With the municipality having the largest agricultural base in Huron County and a good mix of business, small manufacturing and tourist attractions, I believe Huron East has a great deal to offer its residents and visitors. My belief is, "In Huron East, you are only a stranger for a very short while."

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.
