Home » Communities » Burk’s Falls, Armour, and Ryerson

Canada’s famed Group of Seven painters were among the first to capture the beauty surrounding these communities. They were captivated by the granite outcrops, lakes and tall pines, and the vivid autumn colours of the region’s forests. Bordering world-famous Algonquin Park, this area also has excellent agricultural land for mixed farming. The community of Burk’s Falls is home to Lofthouse Forging and Machining, one of the region’s largest employers. The region boasts high-speed telecommunications, transportation links, access to markets and a competitive tax base.  It's just 269 kilometres north of Toronto on a four-lane highway, so it's a great place to live and do business.
