Welcome to Cobourg!

Nestled in picturesque Northumberland County, our town is a lakeside community located on the north shore of Lake Ontario, halfway between Toronto and Kingston.

Founded in 1798, Cobourg is rich in heritage offering a vibrant downtown, sophisticated small town atmosphere and renowned waterfront that serves as a popular getaway destination.

Whether you're here to visit, work, play or do business this thriving municipality of about 18,500 residents welcomes you to the Town of Cobourg!  

Downtown Vitalization Initiative
We're kick starting the implementation phase of the Downtown Vitalization initiative!


Keep yourself updated on the project by visiting the Downtown Vitalization page and by signing up for our e-newsletter by emailing communications@cobourg.ca


Keeping you better informed on municipal issues and up-to-date on what's happening in the Town of Cobourg is important to us.

Our Community Page in the local edition of the Thursday paper is also a great way for you to find out what's happening in the town.
