Welcome to the Town of Laurentian Hills

The Town of Laurentian Hills is located in the heartland of Ontario’s Recreation system, situated
in the beautiful Valley of the Ottawa River bordered by the Laurentian Mountains
and Algonquin Provincial Park.  

Laurentian Hills is perfect for the outdoor enthusiasts.  You can enjoy year-round recreational
opportunities such as fishing, swimming, camping, boating, paddling, hunting, cross-country
skiing and ATV activities. 

The Ottawa Valley Recreation/Algonquin Trail is the former abandoned CP Rail corridor which runs
296 kms between Smith Falls and Mattawa.  The County of Renfrew is developing the rail corridor as
a full multi use trail and when complete will run throughout the municipality.

The Pembroke/North Bay Top A snowmobile trail connects to the many well-groomed local snowmobile
trails throughout the municipality, providing miles of enjoyment for the snowmobile enthusiasts.

Laurentian Hills  in conjunction with the City of Pembroke, Petawawa, Town of Deep River, Township of Laurentian Valley, Townships of  Admaston/Bromley, North Algona Wilberforce, and Whitewater Region developed a Joint Community Safety & Well-Being Plan.  The Community safety and Well-being plan is a collaborative effort with neighboring municipalities including police, First Nations, community partners and members of the community to remove barriers and improve access to the social determinants of health and well-being so that every community member can realize their unique talents and potential in a safe, inclusive and nurturing environment. The primary goal of the plan is to identify and address the root causes of safety and well-being issues in a community. The plan identifies strategies and interventions aimed at reducing risks factors and improve the overall well-being of our communities.  Click HERE for the Plan.
