The Town of Goderich came into being as an indirect result of the war of 1812-14. During that war the settlers in the vicinity of Lakes Ontario and Erie had suffered much loss, both from the soldiers billeted on them and from invaders. In an attempt to recompense them, John Galt and a group of investors in England formed the Canada Company. The British government granted the company 1,100,000 acres of the land it had recently acquired from the Chippewa First Nation.The plan was that the land would be sold to settlers and part of the profits used to settle the war claims. As it turned out, the claimants received nothing...

John Galt arrived on June 29, 182y by ship from Penetanguishene. This is the date celebrated as founder's day...
