The Milverton, Ontario Old Order Amish settlement in Perth County, 35 kilometres (20 miles) west of Kitchener-Waterloo, is the oldest and largest of ten Amish settlements in Ontario, and is the only Canadian Old Order Amish community that originated in Canada. Settlements established since World War II are usually seen as the Canadian New Amish. New settlements are largely made up of Amish who immigrated to Canada from the United States to avoid post-war military conscription or alternate service. 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). Amish in the Milverton area hold to older traditions in dress and buggy styles, e.g., open buggies without tops. Interaction between the old and new communities is minimal. In a sense, the Milverton community is the last of a much larger group, many of whom are now affiliated with Beachy Amish Mennonites and Conservative Mennonites.

In 2001 the Milverton settlement included seven districts.
