To help remind our local small businesses that we love them, Grey County has launched Rediscover Grey. This summer campaign highlights each of Grey County’s nine municipalities. We encourage you to explore and rediscover local businesses, restaurants and outdoor spaces, safely. Rediscover Grey by recommending a local favourite to family or friends, choosing to check local options first for your regular shopping, and sharing the Support Local Grey County social media challenge to win some great local prizes.

Get out and rediscover Grey Highlands!  Known for its sweeping, panoramic vistas with the Beaver Valley - a Niagara Escarpment World Bio Reserve - running through it. Navigate one of the many hiking trails, including the Bruce Trail, canoe or kayak the Beaver River, and explore one of the many charming villages.
