While Embrun has a significant English population, the town is predominantly a French speaking community. According to a 2006 census in the area, 57% of the town speaks French at home. As a real estate company, it is important to us that provide our clients with what they need for a smooth transaction, which is why we offer services in French and English.
Located about a twenty five minute drive from Ottawa, this town is perfect for people who want to live adjacent to a major city but not in the thick of it. In Embrun, residents are surrounded by nature! Located along the Castor River, there are plenty of opportunities for water sports like fishing and canoeing. If land is more your thing, the New York Central Fitness Trail runs along the length of Embrun linking it to Russell and was actually built along the same path where the rail road used to be. In the winter time, you can grab your gear and head out on the ski-doo, too!
Embrun is a fantastic community to grow up in! As part of the community, we donate to and participate in many local events. Sports, clubs and events for people of all ages and interests. There is always something to do but if you’d rather, you can also stay home and enjoy the peace of a smaller town. Make a small trip of it and come see for yourself! If our office is open, you can stop by and see us! We’d be happy to talk to you about anything from the local real estate market, to the area’s schools and answer any questions we can.
