New Municipal Administration Building

Open House and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony: Join us at the new administration building on Thursday, May 25, 2023!
Event details

With construction on the new municipal administration building now complete, municipal staff are preparing for a gradual transition into the new building over the next few weeks. Once the transition is complete, staff from all three Municipal offices (Grand Bend, Northville, and Forest) will be consolidated into one building, which is located at 9577 Port Franks Road, Thedford, ON N0M 2N0.

Although the existing municipal offices will be closing, the Municipality is confident that having one central administration building for all municipal staff will provide a cohesive and streamlined process for customer service, and enhanced collaboration among staff.

To limit customer service interruptions during the transition, there will be a staggered approach with each office moving on a different week. To accommodate the time required for each move, there will be some office closures required. More information about the office transition schedule is below:
