The timeless town on the Tay.
Perth is one of Ontario's most attractive and well-known towns. The breathtaking historic homes and restored heritage buildings are a testament to the communities' efforts to honour the past in everyday life.
Offering a community's amenities many times its size, you can indulge in outdoor, cultural, and culinary pursuits here. The downtown is home to many unique shops, stunning patios, cafes, high-end restaurants, and river-crossed parks at the heart of the community.
Sitting along the Tay River, the town is situated 80 km southwest of Ottawa and 75 km North of Kingston. To the west, Perth is 180 km from Peterborough and 240 km from Toronto, within a two-and-a-half-hour drive along Highway 7.
With its strategic location, Perth offers access to a broad customer base. As the hosts some of the largest festivals in Lanark County, these events draw around 100,000 annually to revel in celebrations dedicated to music, maple syrup, garlic, and Christmas.
Unlike many small towns in Ontario, Perth has managed to maintain a rather diverse economy, with manufacturing remaining a vital part of the local economic fabric. The town also offers serviced industrial lots that are configurable and can be parcelled to meet development plans.
