The first land purchased by Orthodox Mennonites in the Howick and Turnberry townships part of Huron County, Ontario, Canada was in June 1978, as they began to move from the Region of Waterloo, Ontario after an internal division resulted in a group that became the Anson Hoover Mennonites. The first families moved in April 1979.

The first service in the North Howick meetingplace took place 8 June 1986.

In 2017 the bishop was John M. Sherk; the ministers were Henry M. Bowman, Amos M. Sherk, Ivan B. Martin and Norman B. Martin. Seventy families counted North Howick as their home district (congregation).
