Economic Development

The Township of Montague is bordered on the south side by the scenic Rideau Canal and extends west from the City of Ottawa to the Town of Smiths Falls. It covers 283 square kilometers and has seen its population increase over the past two census periods. Residents enjoy a rural lifestyle, with easy access to a large urban centre.

The Township has a long history and is proud of the three lock stations as part of the UNESCO World Heritage site along the north bank of the Rideau Canal – an ideal destination for tourists and residents alike.

Montague is home to the Russ Beach Smiths Falls-Montague airport, run by the Smiths Falls Flying Club. The airport has about 40 hangars that service aviation enthusiasts from the surrounding area.

With the growth of the Township and its close proximity to Ottawa, the Township of Montague is poised for investment and is proud of its slower pace and friendly, rural landscapes.
