North Stormont is a lower tier township in eastern Ontario, Canada in the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry. The township was incorporated on January 1, 1998, by amalgamating the former townships of Finch and Roxborough with the independent village of Finch.

Stormont County was created in 1792, and both Finch and Roxborough were separated from their southerly parents in 1798.

The hamlet of Berwick was first settled by four Cockburn brothers from Scotland in the early 19th century. Berwick became the administrative home of municipal government in the former Finch Township, incorporated January 1, 1850.
