Our Community


Welcome to Paisley, our spirited, picturesque river community of about 1000 people located at the confluence of the Teeswater and Saugeen Rivers in beautiful Bruce County. We are surrounded by rolling hills and farms and just a short drive from the beautiful beaches of Lake Huron and Bruce Nuclear Power Development.

A more relaxed lifestyle is what people notice about our village. Paisley offers a varied selection of retail and service based businesses, several of which feature the work of local artists and artisans. Choose from local organic fare, baked-on- site breads and desserts, pizza or a varied bar and grill menu at one of our casual downtown dining venues.

For the outdoor enthusiast, we are located at the midpoint of a popular canoeing and kayaking route on the Saugeen River with four river access points in the village. Our local outfitter can provide you with all you need for a fun filled trip down the river. Enjoy our scenic riverside walking, biking and hiking trails and our riverside campground. Recreational fishing is also popular here and in early October the salmon return to spawn.

Whether paddling, fishing or using our riverside trails, keep an eye out for the keeper of our river, Saugie, the friendly river creature.

Paisley has a substantial number of designated heritage buildings and four re-purposed mills as well as our local Treasure Chest Museum which all add to its unique character.

There is always plenty to do here in the village. Our service clubs, school, churches and recreational groups always welcome new members and ideas. Be sure to check out our community calendar for our numerous special events.

Whether you plan to come for the day or to stay, we hope you enjoy your time in Paisley.
