Ride the River Route Starting August 30th, 2021!

Brockville Waterfront

Four South Grenville Municipalities, including Augusta Township, City of Brockville, Town of Prescott and Township of Edwardsburgh Cardinal, have partnered to bring transit service to the area with a bus route from Brockville to Cardinal along County Road 2, appropriately named the River Route.

Mariposa Woolen Mill


Although Mariposa Woolen Mill has been open to the public for less than a full year, the prospects for long term success are already pretty bright. This is in large part thanks to the foundation built by owners Ellen and Dave Edney, who run the facility, located at 1275 Highway 7 in Oakwood. In an amazingly short period of time, it has blossomed into a burgeoning family enterprise, serving the entire Kawartha Lakes region and beyond.  

Creative Concrete Industries


Concrete isn’t just for sidewalks anymore.
High-end concrete is making itself known indoors these days with outstanding, lasting and unforgettable results. One of Canada’s most talented concrete designers is Charles (Chuck) Fournier, owner of Creative Concrete Industries, located in Elizabethtown-Kitley Township.
“I love what I do because I get to build something new and one-of-a-kind every day,” says Chuck of his creations, many of which are on a grand scale. For example, he has created a triple island kitchen counter with three waterfalls along with many other functional pieces you have to see to believe, such as hearths, sinks and showers.
Two major commercial projects, identifiable by many for their uniqueness, are bar and table surfaces at 1000 Islands Brewing Company, in Brockville’s downtown core, and the Rabbit Hole on Ottawa’s Sparks Street.

Mallorytown Pharmacy & Health Centre

Pharmacist Mayur Vadher’s goal is giving rural residents convenient access to prescription services and health care.
It’s why he opened the Mallorytown Pharmacy & Health Centre earlier this year in Front of Yonge Township.
“This community is very welcoming and very positive, says Mayur. “They’re happy they have a pharmacy and a walk-in clinic in their own community and we’re happy to be here.”
A pharmacist with over five years of experience, Mayur found Mallorytown area residents, including a large number of seniors, had to travel for all of their medical needs. Many are now welcoming having these services closer to home, he says. His customer/patient list continues to grow daily.
“I found this is an ideal spot and I’ve had very good help from the township.”

Bear Mountain Boats

WESTPORT – Canoe making enthusiasts from all over the world found their way to Bear Mountain Boats recently to learn from owner and master boat builder Ted Moores.
Ted is called “the guru of canoe building,” with his sprint racing canoes and books on wood strip canoes cherished around the globe. People are so keen about working with Ted and his partner Joan Barrett that the workshop sold out in 20 minutes once posted online.
“This course is worth every penny because he’s the best in the world,” says Germany’s Werner Schmidt, who spent a week in Ted and Joan’s workshop just north of Westport on County Road 10.
Ted and Joan moved to the area a few years ago and brought their business with them from Peterborough. They have been building boats for over 40 years and have an online business with wooden canoe, kayak and small boat kits and plans, hard-to-find building materials, books and videos.
