Situated at the interface of the Canadian Shield and the limestone flats of the former Lake Champlain, our County has attractions for everyone.

Covering over 300,000 hectares of which 57.6% is forested land, the county provides a home to more than 68,000 residents.


Historical towns and villages front the Mississippi and Clyde Rivers, and the Rideau Canal, which is a World Heritage Waterway. Old weaving mills, dams and sawmills point to the activities of early settlers.

The major timber areas consisting of Crown Lands, Community Forests and private lands are concentrated in the northern and western townships. Most are administered sustainably under long range management plans, and support an important resource based industry.

Glacial deposits on the former shores of Lake Champlain are the backbone of an extensive Aggregate Extraction Industry.

The southern and eastern portions contain some high value agricultural lands, extensive wetlands and marginal farming areas on thin soils over bedrock. These support an active beef industry.

Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy our Provincial Parks and public recreation areas, plus a network of trails for snowmobiles, ATV’s, bicycles and cross country skiers. Our three large rivers and over 50 lakes provide for excellent boating and fishing, while healthy game populations sustain excellent hunting opportunities.

There is a vibrant tourist industry, relying on outdoor activities, festivals, rural events, sight seeing tours, and cultural happenings.

Lanark County has it all!
