New Residents

Welcome to East Ferris! 

Welcome to the Municipality of East Ferris’ website.  East Ferris was incorporated in 1921 and is made up of two villages: Astorville and Corbeil. The villages are built near the shores of Lake Nosbonsing and Trout Lake and are the communities we call “our home / notre chez-nous!"  

The website is an important tool – a gateway to municipal services and programs as well as a link to connect the Municipality with its nearly 5,000 residents. It builds on East Ferris’ proud legacy of residents and government working together to build a wonderful community to live, work and raise a family.   It includes information on the many events going on in East Ferris as well as photographs of our beautiful countryside. This website, the annual Municipal Calendar and the Welcome Guide are great sources of information for the community.   

If you are a first time visitor, please take a glimpse at what makes Astorville and Corbeil an appealing place to visit or call home. If you are a resident, glimpse through our Municipal Council priorities guiding East Ferris on its journey.  In 2021, the Municipality celebrated its centennial anniversary.  It was a great opportunity to highlight our accomplishments and celebrate our heritage. We look forward to the exciting future East Ferris has, as a vibrant and healthy rural community evolving into a new century!   

Whether Astorville or Corbeil is your home, your workplace, or you are merely visiting, I hope that you enjoy this special place that is East Ferris.
