Brantford is a beautiful city in Southwest Ontario that has small town charm despite being a major industrial centre. It is also known as the “Telephone City” thanks to former resident Alexander Graham Bell who invited the telephone at his father’s home, the Bell Homestead. The city is surrounded by picturesque parks and gardens with the Grand River running right through Brantford. It’s the birthplace of hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, the infamous late comedian Phil Hartman, and Group of Seven painter Lawren Harris.
Brantford is a town on the rise. Traditionally a manufacturing center, the city is successfully attracting new high-tech companies and green technology developments to build an economy for the future. The strong and growing local economy makes Brantford attractive for young families. With historic homes and landmarks along with a renovated town centre, Brantford is building a buzzing community.
Brantford is named after Joseph Brant, an important Mohawk chief during the American Revolutionary War and later, who led his people in their first decades in Upper Canada. However, Brantford's industrial history began when, in 1874, Alexander Graham Bell started his work on the telephone here in his hometown. He completed the work in Boston two years later, and Brantford became home to Canada's first telephone factory, earning it the title of "Telephone City." These developments ensured that Brantford would be a strong center of industry in Canada.
Brantford is a growing centre for the knowledge economy in Ontario. Wilfrid Laurier University operates a Brantford campus in the heart of downtown with 2,800 full-time undergraduate and graduate students. There are also partnerships with Nipissing University and Conestoga College who operate programs through Laurier Brantford. There are several elementary and secondary school options in Brantford. The city and surrounding areas are served by the Grand Erie District School Board, the Brant Haldimand Norfolk Catholic District School Board, and Le Conseil Scolaire de District Catholique.
