Fauquier-Strickland is a township in the Canadian province of Ontario, located in the Cochrane District. The three main communities in the township are Fauquier, Strickland, and Gregoires Mill. All are located along Highway 11 between Departure Lake and Moonbeam.

The township was first incorporated on December 24, 1921, as Shackleton and Machin, the names of the two former geographic townships that comprise its territory. It adopted its current name in 1984, renaming itself for its two largest communities.

Fauquier is located along the Groundhog River. The main community landmark is a roadside statue of a groundhog.
