Established in the 18th century by William Merrick, Merrickville sits on the Rideau Canal.

This “Jewel of the Rideau” is conveniently located less than an hour’s drive from our nation’s capital and the US-Canadian border.

Merrickville has witnessed a flourish of economic growth in the last two decades. It has become a popular destination because of its stunning heritage buildings and sites, its many local businesses, thriving artisan community, and inviting small town ambiance.
