On behalf of Council and all town staff, I would like to welcome you to the official website for the Town of Smiths Falls.
Smiths Falls is a warm and welcoming community at the heart of the Rideau Canal; Ontario’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site. Smiths Falls is a community that has evolved through numerous transitions in our history from the early days of a settlement town on the banks of the Rideau Canal to becoming a major railway hub in the late 1800s. We have been home to a variety of major industries throughout our history, and as we face the challenges of a declining manufacturing base, we look forward to a progressive future driven by innovation, hard work and determination.
Smiths Falls is home to proud, community-minded people committed to constant improvement and progress. We have an abundance of incredible parks, beautiful tree-lined streets and a downtown still tied to the heritage of our early roots. We are a town that is open for business with available industrial and commercial space and a strong labour force.
We are excited about our future and anxious to create new partnerships that will continue to move our town forward.
Shawn J. Pankow, Mayor
