NORTH DUNDAS — North Dundas residents should have received their copies in the mail of this year’s North Dundas Resource Guide.
It includes detailed information regarding upcoming events, local recreation, new developments in the area, and many family-run businesses. There are several businesses that have been around for many years and run by multi-generational families — which is this year’s theme.
Enjoy the detailed histories of family-owned establishments such as; Mike Dean Super Food Stores, Dundas Power Line, JWSD Evolution, Weagant Farm Supplies Ltd., and Louis’ Restaurant.
The guide also highlights a few of the township’s local housing developers; Wellings of Winchester, Wylie Creek Estates, and Winchester Meadows, discussing their process and future plans.
In many ways, this year’s publication offers a view of what could have been, in terms of recreation programming, during these unprecedented times.
Articles also cover recreation clubs like the Chesterville Kayak Club, Nation Valley Snowmobile Association, and the Nation Valley ATV Club and what they offer the community.
Although many of these businesses and recreational organizations may be closed or put on hold for the meantime, the stories are topical in any case and make for good reading as many of us shelter at home.

The township has also produced an express version of the guide this year. See it here.
The guide was developed, photographed, created, and written in a collaborative way by local businesses.
The Township of North Dundas coordinated the effort. Graphic Designer Susan Marriner, of Marriner Design, laid out the booklet and acted as Team Leader. Most of the photographs were taken by Gina Dragone Photography and the articles were written by the Nation Valley News team.
This year’s edition represents NVN’s third spring participating in the Resource Guide’s production. Brainchild of former North Dundas Mayor Eric Duncan, the publication was launched three years ago to both showcase the township and carry annual information about recreational programs — and was loosely inspired by Edible Ottawa and other similar magazines in the region.
