Canada is home to approximately 5,000 Amish, and is the only Amish location outside the US. Ontario is the only province in Canada where Amish live.
Amish have a long history in Canada, with the oldest settlement at Milverton dating to the 1820s. If you’ve ever read the Amish periodical Family Life, you should know Aylmer, the home of Pathway Publishers, who put out Family Life and a number of other publications.
You can read more in the Canada Amish guide, just completed. With Canada our last “state guide” entry–the Amish State Guide resource is now finished (well, that said there could be one more state to add on the horizon…).
