Central Frontenac

In addition to the breathtaking, rugged beauty of the Canadian Shield a tour of our township will reveal several quaint villages and hamlets. Many will remind you of gentler times when rural life revolved around the family farm, the church and the local community centre. Fiercely proud of our heritage many families have ancestry, which can be traced back to the original area settlers and/or First Nations peoples.

More recently we have been attracting new residents. Boomers and summer cottagers are viewing our attractive community as the perfect place to retire and /or start a second career. New residents who are highly skilled and anxious to get involved in their new community are not only enhancing our local economy with dollars spent on new cottage conversions and waterfront construction but enriching the fabric of our culture.
