'''Delhi''' (pronounced DEL-High) is a former township (township (Canada)) (now an unincorporated community) located off of the junction of Ontario Highways 59 (Ontario Highway 59) and 3 (Ontario Highway 3). Delhi is known as the "Heart of Tobacco Country (Ontario tobacco belt)."

Founded by Frederick Sovereign as '''Sovereign's Corners''' around 1826, the community was renamed '''Fredericksburg''' and eventually to its present-day name of Delhi. The name is usually attributed locally to a postmaster honouring a major city of the British Empire, Delhi, India.
