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!
