Stratford, a city on the Avon River in Perth County in southwestern Ontario, Canada, was first settled in 1832.  The townsite and the river were named after Stratford-upon-Avon, England. It is the seat of Perth County which was settled by English, Irish, Scottish and German immigrants, in almost equal numbers, starting in the 1820s but primarily in the 1830s and 1840s. Most became farmers, and even today, the area around Stratford is known for mixed farming, dairying and hog production. Stratford was incorporated as a town in 1859 and as a city in 1886.

Stratford is home of the OHA Midwestern Junior B hockey team, the Stratford Cullitons.  There is the Stratford Rotary Hockey League, Hoops Fun Basketball, Stratford Minor Baseball, the Stratford Soccer House League and the Stratford Dragon Boat Club. Stratford is also home to the Black Swans rugby club and The Chess Federation of Canada.

The town is well known for being the home of the Stratford Festival previously known as the Stratford Shakespeare Festival; while Shakespeare’s plays are still produced, theatre in a wide range of genres is offered each year, from May to October. Stratford is among the best places to retire in Ontario, according to Comfort Life, a publication for seniors. According to this source, MoneySense also makes this recommendation. The latter publication rated Stratford as the 15th best place to live in Canada.
