Loyalist Township is a growing community of 15,000+ people situated on the north shore of Lake Ontario between the Town of Greater Napanee and the City of Kingston. The Township is a blend of rural and urban areas with a number of smaller hamlets throughout, including its very own island community, accessible by ferry.
The County of Lennox & Addington in Eastern Ontario stretches from Lake Ontario to the rugged, rocky terrain of the Canadian Shield. The 2,777 square kilometre County is 130 kilometres long and is neighbour to Renfrew, Hastings, Prince Edward and Frontenac Counties.
From the United Empire Loyalist settlers to the American and European pioneers, the County has a rich past and offers you a chance to explore on your own among some of Canada’s oldest genealogical archives.
Close to nearly one-third of North America’s population, the economic outlook is bright in Lennox and Addington. A mix of farmland, open spaces, forests, and lakes provides a foundation for new business ventures, while stable, thriving communities offer an enticing home.
