Township of Rideau Lakes

Township of Rideau Lakes LogoThe Township of Rideau Lakes has many strengths and its opportunities for the future rest in the diversity of its population, economic activity and geography. Farming, tourism, and service industries form the backbone of the local economy. A top drawing card is its abundance of scenic lakes. It has 500 kilometres (310 miles) of shoreline, excluding the Rideau Waterway.  Waterfront development accounts for a majority of building activity.

Each community within Rideau Lakes has something to offer. Portland is the gateway to Big Rideau Lake. Newboro is considered a haven for anglers. Local residents and visitors agree Chaffeys Lock offers water access in one of the region's most tranquil settings. Delta boasts the Old Stone Mill, a National Historic Site of Canada built in 1810. Elgin is considered the township centre for shopping. The rural charm of our smaller villages and hamlets, including Chantry, Crosby, Forfar, Lombardy, Morton, Plum Hollow and Philipsville is another plus in this community.
