Lanark County

Welcome to the County of Lanark! 

Lanark County invites you to explore our architectural gems, paddle our lakes, rivers and canals, take a trip through our quiet villages and rugged farm land and don’t forget to try some of our world famous Maple Syrup!

Uniquely positioned between major urban centres, Kingston and Ottawa, residents of Lanark County enjoy a high quality of life set against a backdrop of quaint historic villages with breathtaking stone architecture and small-town character. We cherish our rural way of life, sense of community and distinctive natural features.

In 2018, Lanark County will continue to invest in our future by improving transportation opportunities, expanding broadband infrastructure, completing the Ottawa Valley Recreation Trail, developing a long-term housing plan, positioning and planning for business growth and investment and developing family and business-friendly land use planning policies. All of these economic drivers will set the stage to balance growth in our business-friendly communities while protecting what we value most, our natural environment and quality of life we so enjoy.
