Trenton is a large unincorporated community in Southern Ontario in the municipality of Quinte West, Ontario, Canada. Located on the Bay of Quinte, it is the starting point for the Trent-Severn Waterway, which continues northwest to Peterborough and eventually Port Severn on Georgian Bay.
The Trent River was known to Mississauga as Sangichiwigewonk, or 'fast-flowing.' It was re-named after the River Trent in England.
The largest employer in Trenton is Canadian Forces Base Trenton/8 Wing, which is located on the town's east side. It is a significant site for the Royal Canadian Air Force's transport and search and rescue missions.
Trenton Cold Storage, Norampac, Mapco, Citipack, Jobsters, Pentair Thermal Controls, Nestlé, ElectroCables, Domtech, Global Med Inc. (Schauenburg), Mckesson Canada, and DECA Cables are among the other major employers.
Given Trenton's location as the southern entrance point for the Trent–Severn Waterway, tourism is also vital to the economy.
The Parker Bros. Textile Mill was a movie studio that was nicknamed Trenton "Hollywood North" from 1917 until 1920.
