Natural Beauty.

Just beyond your doorstep is some of the best fresh water fishing in the country. You will need a fishing rod with some serious backbone in this angler’s paradise.

Bird Watching.

Almost 300 bird species can be enjoyed thanks to an environment that is very inviting for breeding and migration staging areas. A lifelong fascination with birding can be family friendly.

Outdoor Recreation.

Bike or hike. Swim in the clear Canadian water. Paddle or cruise into the spectacular sunset. Begin your snowmobile adventure or cross country ski from your own back yard. Whatever the season, days of outdoor fun await you and your family.


Windows are left open at night. Neighbours help neighbours. Children enjoy baseball at the park without fear. You can live a more carefree life, yet still be safe.


Walk down the street and people will smile, say “hi” to you by name and take time to chat. When you give back to the community, you are recognized and appreciated. You can make a difference. You can belong.
