"Still Canada's Prettiest Town!"
On Sunday afternoon, August 21, 2011 a destructive tornado ripped through 'Canada's Prettiest Town.' Major damage was done to the Sifto Salt Mine, our historic Courthouse Square and Park, much of our parkland and many residences, some of which have major historic value.
We are well on our way to rebuilding and recovery and already have an excellent reforestation plan in progress.
We still want the opportunity to welcome you as a guest and visitor. Our waterfront, with three great beaches is still intact, many established and new restaurants and accommodations are up and running, the Huron County Museum and Historic Gaol are open and we are excited to again host many of our favourite events as well some "newcomers." Please feel free to call ahead or email us to ensure that you have the best experience possible. The phone numbers for Tourism Goderich are 519-524-6600 or Toll Free at 1-800-280-7637. Our email address is email@example.com.
Every day we move closer to once again being what we are so proud to be.
Thank you all for your understanding, your patience and your concern. Together we stand strong and with your help we will once again be 'Canada's Prettiest and Strongest Town.'
