Centrally located in the heart of Eastern Ontario, Frontenac is steeped in history. Originally proclaimed on July 16, 1792 as part of the newly-created Midland District, Frontenac was joined by neighbouring Lennox and Addington counties, as one of the original nineteen counties in Upper Canada. The union was formally dissolved on January 1, 1865.
Today, the County of Frontenac offers an exceptional quality of life while providing businesses with strategic access to major markets in both Canada and the USA. Residents enjoy the advantages of a rural lifestyle, living, working and traveling in one of the most beautiful parts of our province, yet benefit from the region's proximity to a number of major urban centres.
The region boasts a diverse economy, with representation across the service, manufacturing and agricultural sectors. Low tax rates, low property costs, and land availability are but some of the reasons why entrepreneurs choose to establish businesses and live within the Frontenacs… easy access to world-class health care facilities; exceptional educational institutions; and a vibrant cultural community are others.
