Township of

on Manitoulin Island

  • The Township of Burpee Mills was established in 1997 upon the amalgamation of the Township of Burpee and the Township of Mills. Our approximately 330 residents have access to many services including a volunteer Fire Department and a new recycling and transfer station. Our municipal building houses a large community hall, township offices, fitness room and gymnasium. Along with a permanent outdoor rink, which doubles as basketball court, the complex meets all the needs of the community. About 9 or 10 times per year, community volunteers stage a Burpee Breakfast, which is attended by hundreds of folks for miles around. We are proud of our community and encourage everyone to learn more about our history.
