About Us

Jim Abernethy
by Jim Abernethy, Editor

The Municipality of Clarington is the eastern Gateway to the GTA.

We are a diverse community, rich in heritage and history.

Our community incorporates vast tracks of beautiful and productive farmland, an abundance of fresh water streams, heritage main streets and well-defined communities.

Here we have a sense of time, a sense of place. 

Clarington is the largest agricultural producer from the west side of Toronto to the Quebec border.

We are home to the OPG Darlington GS which now provides almost 20% of Ontario’s electrical energy.

Since 2007, Clarington has continually been one of Ontario's fastest growing municipalities and is now home to more than 90,000 people.

Clarington Promoter.ca is a publication designed to help explore the richness of our historical past and to educate ourselves about the similarities and differences found in each of the more than 35 communities that define Clarington.

Clarington is a "Gem” and we are well positioned to take on the future.
