The Talbot River is a river in the Great Lakes Basin in Central Ontario, Canada which flows from Mitchell Lake to Lake Simcoe and forms the border between Simcoe County (Ramara township) to the north and the Regional Municipality of Durham (Brock township) to the south from the river mouth to the edge of their border with the city of Kawartha Lakes at the east.
The lower section of the river is now part of the Trent-Severn Waterway, although a new more direct channel was cut at the end of the 19th century, bypassing the original mouth of the river. The Talbot River drains the natural Raven and Talbot lakes, as well as the man-made Mitchell and Canal Lakes.
Even before the construction of the waterway, the river provided an important transportation corridor for native peoples and early settlers.
