Welcome to Lanark County
Maple Syrup Capital of Ontario
From the Rideau System to Canada’s Mississippi, Lanark County is home to over 100 lakes, rivers and waterfalls. Coves and beaches speckle the landscape.
After building the world-renowned Rideau Canal, Scottish stone masons stayed to create some of the oldest and prettiest towns in Canada. Evidence of their craft is seen in over 140 designated heritage properties throughout the County, often by water’s edge. Bring your camera and capture our historically significant “Seven Wonders of Lanark County!”
Generations of residents and visitors have built a strong community spirit that has cultivated small business, events and festivals that speak to our ancestral and geological heritage.
Geographically, Lanark County is a remarkably distinct region within the Frontenac Axis where the Canadian Shield meets the Limestone Plains. This presents a combination of ecological features that offer an especially diverse growth area for native plant species which attract a variety of birds and wildlife. Residents and visitors enjoy cycling and paddling through these breathtaking natural vistas.
As the Maple Syrup capital of Ontario, our concentration of sugar maple trees creates a dramatic display of fall colours. Visitors from all over the world enjoy this authentic Canadian experience.
Only minutes from the Nation’s Capital, people of the region have access to all the world-class amenities of a major centre. At the same time, they enjoy the relaxed lakeside lifestyle.
Lanark County is a world heritage destination!
