A rural community made for exploring.
The Township of Drummond/North Elmsley is a predominantly rural municipality, nestled by the UNESCO Site of the Historic Rideau River Waterway to the south and the Mississippi River to the northwest.
The southern portion of the Municipality features many lakes, rivers and mixed forests, while the more western and northern areas feature rolling hills and fertile farmland.
This charming community provides many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, watch movies under the stars at the Port Elmsley Drive-In Theatre or get on the water at Rideau Ferry Yacht Club Conservation Area. The conservation area boasts 10 acres of shoreline, providing public day use with access to Lower Rideau Lake.
The Township enjoys the urban conveniences of both the neighbouring Town of Perth and the Town of Smiths Falls. Many residents live in residential subdivisions around Perth and Smiths Falls and along the four main lakes: Mississippi, Lower Rideau, Big Rideau and Otty.
The Township has one privately owned business park on Wayside Drive, ideally located off Highway 7 and a business area off Rideau Ferry Road close to Perth. The business community thrives because of the region's robust transportation network. Although the Township is not serviced (water and sewer), low tax rates and competitive development rates make it an attractive place to open a business.
