Almonte Ontario. Come visit us soon.

ALMONTE IS A SCENIC MILL TOWN on the Canadian Mississippi River, 45 minutes southwest of downtown Ottawa. Our population is about 5,000. Our limestone mill buildings have been re-purposed over the years as galleries, condos, restaurants and office space, while our main street offers boutiques, craft shops, galleries and antiques.

We have several first-class restaurants and a variety of inns and B&Bs, most located in historic structures along the river. We’re also home to some fascinating museums, and we host some excellent summer festivals.

Come by and visit soon.
