DESCRIPTION

Historic Stoney Creek has a long and honourable provenance and is one of the oldest communities in the City of Hamilton. Settlements were first established primarily by United Empire Loyalists in the late 1700s, and residents annually celebrate a key battle from the War of 1812, with re-enactments and tours of the Battle of Stoney Creek National Historical Site. Now one of the fastest-growing areas within the city, industry and housing development are attracted by its central location close to the lake. Upper Stoney Creek also includes a portion of the Niagara Escarpment, with access to the beauty of nearby parks and conservation areas as well as the many urban amenities offered both above and below the escarpment. There is a strong tradition of innovation and entrepreneurship in Stoney Creek. The Stoney Creek Chamber of Commerce, formed in 1950, has more than 400 members and a strong voice on the issues impacting the business community. An unusual celebration was born in Stoney Creek in 1969, when the community adopted the idea of celebrating Canada’s new maple leaf flag as a focus for community activities. Held a month before Canada Day, it includes an annual parade and festival. It focuses on a combination of pride in the Canadian flag and local civil spirit, as seen in the honouring of the famous 1813 Battle of Stoney Creek. Today, Stoney Creek retains its historic identity, while serving as one of the most populous and fastest-growing sectors in Hamilton.
