The Township of North Stormont is a very active agricultural community, and is also home to many unique businesses, including aggregate extract, waste management, retail, food handling and professional and technical services. Although the smallest in population of the six municipalities in SDG, North Stormont provides a strategic location for businesses to locate due to its proximity along Highway 417, Highway 138 and to major centers such as Ottawa and Montreal.
