World Heritage Site - Rideau Canal


Merrickville, also dubbed 'the Jewel of the Rideau', has become a favourite weekend getaway spot on the gorgeous Kingston-Ottawa Rideau Heritage Route. Located near the mid-point of the canal system, Merrickville evokes fond memories of times gone by. You won't find any parking meters or traffic lights here but you might find the Town Crier and very friendly villagers.

19th Century Architecture - 21st Century Shopping!


Merrickville is renowned for its boutiques, which are filled with one-of-a-kind items made by local artists and artisans.
