Courtland is a village situated on Highway 3 between Tillsonburg and Delhi. This community was once referred to as Middleton, a name borrowed from the famous, similarly named community in Nova Scotia. West of the town there’s a motorcycle shop and gas station that used to belong to UPI Energy.
The community of Courtland in Ontario, Canada, is known for its Agriculture, manufacturing, and tourism sectors, much like the rest of Norfolk County. In fact, the county’s farmers are claimed to supply more vegetables and fruits to Canada’s restaurants and dinner tables than any other part of the country.
North Street, which runs in a similar direction to the railroad tracks, is the oldest street in the community. Other major streets in the village include Main Street, the busiest street with the most commerce; and the Highway Crescent, which connects the local residents to the highway.
The population has only a few thousand people, with the Courtland Park neighbourhood having an estimated population of 2,807 according to the 2011 Canada Census, compared to the whole of Norfolk County with over 63,000 people. The people of Courtland attend one of five churches in the area, with the oldest one being the Lutheran Church.
Living in Courtland
The service industry in Courtland comprises a family restaurant, flower shop, bakery, antique store, a vinyl window business, and a variety store. There are two schools: a public one and a Catholic school. Part of the neighbourhood comprised a drive-in movie theatre known as Auto Sky Drive-in. It was operational between 1949 and 1981 before it was dismantled and townhouses built, creating Ambridge, Courtland, and Malibu streets.
Courtland Park’s population includes people living north of Hog’s Back and east of Prince of Wales; developments that took place between the end of the Second World War and the early 1960s. Some of the townhouses were developed in the 1970s and 80s.
A number of recreational businesses collapsed after the recession in the early 2000s, including a golf course. Around the same time, the purchasing power of the community was largely affected by official tax policy changes that took effect after the Ontario provincial election in 2003.
Crime in the area
The crime rate for Courtland is fairly low compared to the rest of Norfolk County, and programs such as “Crime Stoppers” have helped reduce crime incidents in the region, especially with regard to narcotics and property loss through theft and burglaries.
