Kemptville, largest community in North Grenville

North Grenville is a township in eastern Ontario, Canada, in the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville on the Rideau River. It is located just south of Ottawa, Canada's National Capital Region.

It was established on January 1, 1998, through the amalgamation of Oxford-on-Rideau Township, South Gower Township, and the Town of Kemptville. In 2003, a motion of the municipal council adopted the designation of 'municipality'.

The largest community in North Grenville is Kemptville, with a population of 3,532 in the 2011 census, down from 3,667 in the Canada 2001 Census.[2][3] It is located on the Kemptville Creek (historically South Branch of the Rideau River) approximately 56 km south of Ottawa, sitting midway between suburban Ottawa and the Prescott-Ogdensburg bridge along Highway 416.
