Overview of Horton Township
Horton Township is a vital rural community that surrounds Renfrew on three sides. Over 2,500 residents choose to reside in Horton Township. Along with bordering the Ottawa River, the Township is home to several large lakes making this community very attractive to cottagers and retirees. The four-lane expansion of the TransCanada Highway (417) beyond Arnprior is nearing completion. This will shorten the commute to Ottawa for work and social outings.
Council takes pride in looking out for their residents. They are one of four municipal partners with the Renfrew Victoria Hospital that are working towards physician recruitment for this area. To date they have been successful in recruiting several new physicians, a general surgeon and an internist. Residents wanting information on how to register for a doctor

The Township is flourishing with new development. There is a planned subdivision that is nearing the construction stage and another is in the planning stages. In addition, several new businesses have chosen to set up their company in our thriving Township.
