About Us

We can offer business and families an alternative choice to the hectic pace of a larger urban centre. Severn Township residents and Council believe in the philosophy of community and working in partnership for a better place to live and work. We are dedicated to fostering a high quality rural lifestyle, through our commitment to enhancing public safety, preserving the natural environment and seeking opportunities for economic prosperity.

Peaceful views abound, be it from the 9th hole, a canoe on the Severn River, the cottage porch – or even your office window! Severn Township invites business and industry to “resort to cottage country”. Yes, you can close a business deal in the GTA, and still be home in time to cast your fishing line or hike one of our scenic trails.
