The History of Dawson

Dawson was created in 1997 by the amalgamation of the former Township of Atwood, Township of Blue, Township of Dilke and Township of Worthington. Each of these former municipalities were created in the early 1900s. The Council decided to amalgamate in order to improve efficiency.

The name Dawson was chosen in order to recognize the historical Dawson Trail which was the main route of settlers moving from the east to the western part of Canada.
