Addington Highlands (2011 population 2,532) is a township in central eastern Ontario, Canada, in the County of Lennox and Addington.

Bon Echo Provincial Park is for the most part located in the township.

Kaladar is located at the junction of Highway 7 and Highway 41. To the north is Bon Echo Provincial Park. Other nearby natural areas are the Kaladar Pine Barrens Conservation Reserve and Puzzle Lake Provincial Park. This area was first settled following the construction of the Addington Road in 1857. It was originally named Scouten after its first postmaster. The old CPR rail bed passing through the town has become part of the Trans Canada Trail.

The Kaladar fire tower was removed in the 1980s. It was situated up the hill at the north end of the village, just off the highway.
