Relocating to Essa Ontario
Essa has several main communities within the Township including Angus, Thornton, and Baxter. There are smaller hamlets such as Cedar Grove, Colwell, Egbert, Elm Grove, Hoe Doe Valley, IV, Utopia, and West Essa. However, Angus is the largest community in the Township and the main access to neighboring Canadian Forces Base Borden. Often when you hear people talk about Essa, they may also be referring to Angus. Angus was the shipping point for all lumber and square timber from several sawmills around Essa and is often interchangeably used with the town of Essa.
Essa is a beautiful and scenic location with affordable property taxes and close access to major highways and amenities. It is primarily an agricultural area with a thriving commercial, retail, and service industry, nature areas, expansive parks, trails, and convenient access to local Alliston and Barrie.
Essa is known for its renowned ice cream parlor Thortons since 1990. Not only do they serve some of the best ice cream in town, but they have all-day breakfast, homemade soups, delicious burgers, sandwiches, and wraps. You have to try the French toast loaded with local maple syrup… It truly is to die for.
Essa Ontario Schools
Essa is served by four elementary schools and a high school all managed by the Simcoe County District School Board and the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board. There are also two French schools accessible to Essa residents by the French public school board.
