Welcome to Brantford•Brant

The city of Brantford and the County of Brant are located on the beautiful Grand River in the centre of Southwestern Ontario, Canada. Brantford•Brant is a special place to live, work and play. Just a short drive from Toronto, Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo, and Buffalo, Brantford•Brant is in the centre of it all.

Brantford is sometimes known as "The Telephone City", after the city’s most famous resident Alexander Graham Bell who brought fame to Brantford when he invented the telephone in 1874. The city was named after the Mohawk Leader Joseph Brant.

Proud to be the hometown of "The Great One", Wayne Gretzky, Brantford is a city where amateur and minor sports are a very important part of community life.
