The Township of Edwardsburgh/Cardinal was formed on January 1, 2001, through the amalgamation of Edwardsburgh Township with the Village of Cardinal.

Both Highway 416 and Highway 401 pass through the township.


The township's main population centres are Cardinal, Johnstown, and Spencerville. It also includes the communities of Brouseville, New Wexford, Pittston, and Shanly.


Cardinal is a small village located in the township of Edwardsburgh/Cardinal. Situated along the Saint Lawrence River, between the towns of Iroquois to the east and Johnstown to the west, Cardinal has approximately one thousand residents.

Hugh Munro built a grist-mill at Point Cardinal in 1796. Small industries capitalized on the water power offered by the Galops Rapids. By 1864, Cardinal's business concerns included the McLatchie foundry and the Canada Starch Works.[2]
