The Township of Russell lies approximately 30 minutes south east of Ottawa, just off the 417 highway.  The township has 14, 000 residents.

Our most popular asset is the NY Central trial, a paved pathway that stretches 7.2 km between the towns of Russell and Embrun which is ideal for roller blades or bikes.  Russell Township has two arenas, an outdoor pool and two libraries.  There are many community groups (Knights of Columbus, Russell Association for the Performing Arts, Lions, Embrun Recreation Committee, Optimist Club, Horticultural Society, Agricultural Society) as well as many recreational and competitive sports leagues such as hockey, broomball, badminton, soccer, baseball and curling.  There are lots of things to do in our little community!

Russell is always in need of more doctors!  There are two clinics in the Township of Russell, Russell Medical Centre and the Clinique de Médicine familiale d’Embrun.  The nearest hospitals are in Ottawa or Winchester, both of which are a half an hour away.  Having the amenities of a city close by is a great reason to set up practice here.

We offer friendly small town atmosphere with the convenience of being close to a larger city.  This is a great place to settle in if you are looking for bilingual communities rich in history, culture and recreation.
