Stoney Creek is basically a community situated in the province of Ontario in Canada. This community is located on the southern coast of western Lake Ontario, only east of the city of Hamilton into which Stoney Creek’s watercourse is fed, as well as numerous other small streams.
The Old Town, which is known as the historical area of the community, is located under the Niagara Escarpment. Stoney Creek was converted into a city in 1984. Although residential development exploded, specifically in the lower city during the 1970s and the 1980s and in the western mountain during the 1990s and the 2000s, the majority of Stoney Creek’s land mass is still agricultural.
The communities of Winona, Elfrida, Vinemount, Fruitland, Tweedside and Tapleytown act as different reminders of Saltfeet Township’s and Stoney Creek’s agricultural legacy. In 2011, Stoney Creek did not retain its independent status because the government of Ontario formally combined Hamilton, Stoney Creek, Flamborough, Ancaster, Dundas and Glanbrook into new Hamilton City, converting the new city hall of Stoney Creek into a public library.
The 2001 Census reports that Stoney Creek’s population was 59, 327- 5.5% higher than what was reported by the 1996 census. Children below 14 years old comprised 19.4 percent, while retirement-age people totaled 12.6 percent of the average population.
