Having officially been dubbed Canada’s Most Beautiful Village by Communities in Bloom, and with more designated heritage buildings than any other Ontario community of like-size, Merrickville is a unique and vibrant Victorian village on The Rideau Canal. The municipality of Merrickville-Wolford, amalgamated in 1998 through the joining of the urban Village of Merrickville and the rural Township of Wolford, provides an array of activities and services for visitors, businesses and locals alike.
Ideally-situated along the historic Rideau Canal, less than an hour’s drive from both Ottawa, the nation’s capital, and the U.S.-Canada border, the Village of Merrickville and the surrounding rural area of Wolford, loves to celebrate its history and culture and heartily invites everyone to join in! To enjoy its heritage, natural attractions, delightful restaurants and shops, its small town hospitality, and its all-round, year-round enchantment.
