 It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our website.  As Mayor in my second term, I am honoured to be representing the citizens of Severn Township. As you browse you will get a glimpse of our beautiful municipality.  I know that you will be impressed as to what Severn has to offer you.  Situated adjacent to the City of Orillia and bounded by Lake Couchiching to the east, the Severn River to the north, Georgian Bay to the west and Bass Lake to the south, this recreational setting allows for numerous year round activities with a wide range of services. Our rural and urban settlements such as Coldwater, Washago, Port Severn, Severn Falls and Marchmont provide an atmosphere of comfort and relaxation all year round. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are here to serve you.  I invite you to come and Discover Severn. 

Mayor Mike Burkett
