Join a town where residents enjoy safe living, scenic beauty and an active community life. Mississippi Mills is recognized as a dynamic and progressive municipality delivering efficient and cost effective services to its citizens within the community's economic framework through a team of friendly, skilled and valued people. The Town which was first settled in 1819 is an amalgamation of the Town of Almonte with the Townships of Ramsay and Pakenham and is located about 30 minutes southwest of Ottawa.
For more than 120 years Almonte was recognized as Canada’s largest production center of woolen goods. Today, the heritage structures that remain have been renovated for use as retail sites, offices, museums and residences and will continue to be as much a part of the future as they are a sign of Mississippi Mills’ past. This charming Town with a permanent population of 13,163 encompasses 520 sq. km. It is an ideal location to live, work, and raise a family.
