Welcome to the Municipality of North Perth
...where big city attractions meets small town charm! Surrounded by the beauty of Perth County’s countryside, the towns of Listowel, Atwood, Monkton, Gowanstown and Palmerston make up this bustling area.
The Town of Listowel offers the ultimate shopping experience with big box stores on the edge of town as well as a thriving downtown core. Whether it's women’s fashions, jewellery, home décor, sporting goods or finding a treasure at one of the second-hand stores, there is something for everyone.
North Perth is a growing community and a great place to visit, to work, to live and to play!

Visit one of Canada’s largest yarn shops, The Spinrite Factory Yarn and Craft Outlet, which carries a large selection of yarns at discount prices. Two major tent sales in February and one in August make it easy to come and visit any time of year!
For the sports enthusiast, this community is made just for you! The golfer in the family can book a tee time at either the 27 hole or the 9 hole golf course.
The North Perth Community Trails is a mix of farmland, parks and former railway lines. The 22 km trail runs from Gowanstown to Henfryn, through Listowel and onto Atwood. Different locations of the trail offer hiking, cycling, biking or walking at various levels of difficulty. Horseback riders and cross country skiers are also welcome.
