Amish have had a presence in Canada since the 1800s, with the Milverton settlement one of the oldest Amish communities in North America (over 180 years in existence).

Canada experienced a significant influx of Amish post-World War II, with Amish migrants seeking to avoid military conscription or the alternate service programs which arose in place of military service.

GAMEO notes that “Later Canadian restrictions have, however, caused some Amish to return to the United States.

This has caused most Ontario Amish settlements to remain at one to two church districts (congregations)” (see ).

Today, the Amish population in Canada stands at nearly 5,000.

The Canadian Amish population ranks 11th among all states and provinces, between Illinois (10th) and Minnesota (12th) (see Amish Studies web site and ).The Milverton community also includes mailing addresses for nearby Millbank, Newton, Linwood, and Atwood.The Milverton Amish are considered to hold to older dress and buggy-style traditions, and use buggies without tops.Contact between the older Milverton Amish and the newer Canadian Amish groups has been described as “minimal” ().An indication of different origins are the family names found in this settlement.Among others, the last names Kuepfer, Albrecht, Jantzi, and Streicher are seen in the Milverton settlement, but are rare elsewhere across Amish North America (the settlement at Kincardine in Bruce County, ON being an exception).
