Amish & Mennonites in Canada
Ontario is the only Canadian province where Amish can be found today. Compared with American states, Ontario ranks as having the #11-largest Amish population, just behind Illinois but ahead of Minnesota. With over 5,000 Amish living in the province in over one dozen communities, Ontario has a thriving and sizeable Amish footprint. Significant Amish communities can be found near the towns of Milverton, Lucknow, Aylmer, and Norwich in Oxford County.
Amish first arrived in Canada in the early-1800s, settling in Perth County in the vicinity of Millbank and Milverton. A later influx of Amish came following World War II, amid concerns of military conscription in the United States (Amish espouse non-resistance as a key element of their practice of Christianity). Amish have previously tried to settle in Canada outside of Ontario, namely in British Columbia, though without establishing a permanent presence elsewhere (read more on Amish in Canada).
In addition to the Amish community, Ontario is also home to a large group of Old Order Mennonites. At approximately 4,000 individuals, the Old Order Mennonite presence rivals that of the Amish in Ontario. Old Order Mennonites carry similar cultural markers to the Amish, such as plain clothing, horse-and-carriage travel, and a formal education limited to the 8th grade. They also follow similar vocational paths, with many Old Order Mennonites farming like the Amish, as well as operating small cottage businesses. Likewise, Mennonites in Ontario are also active in the furniture business. In addition to Amish woodworking, a number of businesses carry Mennonite-made furniture.

Ontario Amish woodworking
Amish furniture found in Ontario stores may come from one of a few sources. Some of the Amish-made furniture sold in Ontario outlets is crafted by Canadian Amish themselves. Other stores rely on suppliers stateside, particularly from Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsylvania, the three most heavily-settled Amish states and centers of Amish furniture production.
Amish woodworkers in Ontario and America ply their trades in a similar fashion. The norm for Amish furniture makers is the small home-based shop dedicated to creating a line of furniture items, with manufacturers often specializing in a specific type of piece, such as bedframes, tables, chairs, stools, or even children’s furniture. Amish woodworking shops commonly employ a small number of employees totaling in the single digits. Many incorporate family members into the operation, and some may work exclusively on a family basis.
Some of the larger Amish furniture businesses expand employment to reach 20 or even 30+ workers, though shops of such size are the exception rather than the rule. By preserving the small-scale approach, Amish furniture craftsmen help assure the quality of the finished product. It’s typical that the Amish owner of a furniture business will contribute labor in a hands-on fashion, working side-by-side with his own employees.
Where can I buy Amish furniture in Ontario?
Amish furniture can be purchased in Ontario via a variety of venues. The listings above feature Amish furniture outlets throughout the province. Shopping for Amish furniture via a retailer provides convenience, as many are located near large cities, and selection, with retailers typically carrying products from a number of Amish builders.
Alternatively, some Amish furniture buyers opt to buy straight from the source. While many Amish stick to wholesale production, some do sell retail. Visiting an Amish settlement in person may be the best way to track down an Amish woodworker who sells direct, and also gives the opportunity for an enjoyable day trip. See above for information on locations of Amish and Mennonite settlements in Ontario.
