Honorable work

As we said, Canton’s countryside is a can’t-miss—and not yet to mention, the foundation of its strong agriculture industry. Canton and the surrounding Bradford County are dotted with dairy farms. The area welcomes ag-related technology and processing companies from all over the country to plant their roots here. Energy is also a leading industry in the Canton area, with many national and international companies actively drilling or leasing Marcellus Shale properties nearby.

Specialized education

Canton residents can attend the local public schools operated under the Canton Area School District, or they may also seek admission for their school-aged children to any surrounding public school district by paying an annual tuition fee.

BLaST Intermediate Unit 17 is an educational agency serving 19 public schools, two career centers, and 12 non-public schools in the area. BLaST IU provides several beneficial programs for students such as early intervention for child development and speech and hearing therapy.

Quality healthcare

Canton residents are fortunate to be served by Guthrie—a non-profit healthcare delivery system spanning Pennsylvania and New York. Guthrie Troy Community Hospital is a Level IV Regional Trauma Center located just fifteen minutes from Canton. The community hospital offers 24-hour emergency care in addition to 24-hour laboratory, imaging, and surgical services.
