Modern living on the Rideau Canal.
Smiths Falls has seen a great downtown revival and an increasingly youthful vibe evident in the trendy eateries, patios, live music venues, waterfront trails and bike-friendly streets.
Located on the banks of the historic Rideau Canal waterway, residents enjoy acres of parkland and relish in outdoor recreational activities along the watercourse, with natural wildlife, picnic areas, and maintained walking trails. In addition, visitors have the chance to observe the magic of boats on the canal being lifted from one story of water to the next.
Many artisans have made Smiths Falls their home alongside a diverse range of businesses and sectors. The community has embraced emerging industries and innovative entrepreneurs from food processing, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, and technology.
Over the past several years, Smiths Falls has invested updates to municipal infrastructure, including hospital upgrades, a new arena, and water treatment and sewer plant updates.
Smiths Falls sits at the Centre of a transportation hub for vehicular, rail, water and aerial traffic. Smiths Falls is only a short drive to Carleton Place, and from there, it is a straight shot to the City of Ottawa on a major four-lane highway. The city of Kingston is 1.5 hours away, and Brockville is 45 minutes. VIA Rail runs right through the town of Smiths Falls to Ottawa, Kingston, and Toronto.
