History

Clearview was established on January 1, 2014 when the towns in the area including the village of Creemore, the town of Stayner, and the Townships of Nottawasaga and Sunnidale were amalgamated.

Creemore established its first settlement in 1842 while early settlement to the Stayner area occurred between 1851 and 1855 when a railroad line was constructed between Toronto, Ontario and Collingwood, Ontario. Agriculture and Lumber were the two largest trades in Stayner and helped it develop quickly into a larger and more established town in the area. It was incorporated as a village in 1872 and a town in 1888. Creemore was incorporated as a village in 1889. Nottawasaga and Sunnidale were incorporated as townships early on (1851 and 1858 respectively) but did not grow at the rate of Stayner and remained townships until the amalgamation in 1994.
