About Severn

The Township of Severn offers a diverse blend of rural, small urban and vacation lifestyles. For the residents of Severn, we promote a sustainable, fiscally responsible, safe and healthy community while supporting our heritage and culture.
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.

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.
