Live & Work

Lindsay is in the heart of the City of Kawartha Lakes, a rural landscape dotted with over 250 lakes and rivers and crisscrossed by the Trent Severn Waterway and a myriad of trails. Agriculture continues to be our biggest business with tourism a close second.

Doing business in the large Southern Ontario markets, United States or internationally, is easy from Lindsay or the surrounding small towns and villages. Just an hour northeast of the GTA, Lindsay is free of gridlock but a quick overnight shipment to the burgeoning markets in Canada and the U.S. Over 130 manufacturers have chosen the advantages of this thriving, well connected rural community.

It's a small town with big city services including the newly expanded Ross Memorial Hospital and Fleming College, noted as Canada’s most comprehensive School of Environment and Natural Resources Sciences and fast becoming known for its Geomatics Institute.

Our small business sector is thriving with an attractive Victorian downtown and large commercial properties from which to choose.
