Amish and Mennonites of Ontario
The Canadian federal and provincial governments regard the Mennonites as people distinct from others living in this country. Mennonites may also be considered an ethno-religious group.
Amish Horse & BuggyThe Amish, the Old Order and the Old Colony Mennonites are small, rural groups who continue to live separately from the rest of society. Agriculture is their chief occupation. They generally wear distinctive traditional dress or plain dress, attend separate schools, and shun technological advances (with exceptions) and 'worldly' entertainments.
Just east of Aylmer is a sizable Old Order Amish community. This particular Amish community avoids the use of automobiles, electricity, and most modern conveniences.
The Old Order Mennonites and Amish can also be seen in the villages of Elmira and St Jacobs, just north of Kitchener and Waterloo. St Jacobs is a pretty place with an old fashioned feel. The village is famous for its Farmers' Market which is open all year round. The local Mennonite and Amish farmers bring their fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, preserves, and maple syrup.
