Quinte West is a city, formerly part of Hastings County, but now a Separated municipality in central eastern Ontario, Canada, . It is located on the western end of the Bay of Quinte on Lake Ontario. The Lake Ontario terminus of the Trent-Severn Waterway is located in the municipality.

Quinte West was formed through the amalgamation of the city of Trenton, the village of Frankford and the townships of Murray and Sidney on January 1, 1998. Trenton is the largest community and serves as the administrative and commercial centre.

Communities

In addition to Trenton and Frankford, the district of Quinte West, also includes the communities of Barcovan Beach, Batawa, Chatterton, German Landing, Glen Miller, Glen Ross, Halloway, Johnstown, Lovett, Madoc Junction, Maple View, Mount Zion, Oak Lake, River Valley, Roseland Acres, Spencers Landing, Stockdale, Tuftsville, Twelve O'Clock, Wallbridge and Wooler.

Quinte West is home to 8 Wing Trenton, the Canadian Forces primary air transportation hub. Many of Canadian Forces operations in Afghanistan are carried out from this base. It also serves as the area's biggest employer.
