Alert message

The Town of Hawkesbury benefits from a strategic geographic location, acting as a bridge between the greater areas of Montreal and Ottawa, Canada’s Nation Capital.


No other city or town in Eastern Ontario has a better location when it comes to transporting people and goods to market. This is especially true when looking at the Quebec, Eastern Canada and American markets. The American border is one hour away by road from the Town center.

Given its privileged location between Montreal and Ottawa, over 4.7 million individuals reside within Hawkesbury’s 100 km radius. Hawkesbury is located at 10 minutes from Trans-Canada Highways 417 and 401 and within minutes of Highway 50 and Route 148 in the province of Québec.

The CN services Hawkesbury’s industrial park and two international airports are within an hour’s drive.

Hawkesbury is well situated to provide easy market access through Montreal’s International Port and the Port of Prescott.
