Dunnville is a small community in southeast Haldimand County on the Grand River. Incorporated as a village in the 19th century, it became a part of the Haldimand-Norfolk municipality in the 1970s. In the 2001 restructuring of Ontario municipalities, Haldimand-Norfolk was dissolved and reformed as Haldimand County, with Dunnville as a community within it. Dunnville has a population of 5,759 people, which has seen little change in the last few decades. This small town is known for being the site of a former Royal Canadian Air Force Training Base from World War II, and for nearby Provincial Parks and Conservation Areas.
