Why Wait?

School enrolment, child care, and recreational programs without wait times or big expense? It’s a fact of life in the 1000 Islands & St. Lawrence River Region.

All The Facilities

Where city living brings along with it waiting lists and added costs, our area offers immediate or quick access to programming that makes life more livable. The Brockville YMCA, for example, features a full range of athletic facilities including an indoor pool, gym, and extensive child care programming including before and after school options and much more. Our YMCA is much more than just a gym, it’s a true community hub and a great example of the better riverside lifestyle that you could enjoy here in your new home.

Education Options

School options are also a major part of the lifestyle advantage offered along the St. Lawrence River. Along with the numerous public and separate schools across the region, we also boast the French-language Académie catholique Ange-Gabriel just outside of Brockville and private schools such as Fulford Academy and the Brockville Montessori School in Brockville, and St. Lawrence Academy in Prescott. Brockville also has St. Lawrence College which is a world-renowned destination school for Post Secondary Education. 

Retire Without Worries

Aging in our communities is also celebrated through programs to assist seniors, so you can move to our area without concern that you will be leaving behind vital city services. Community and Primary Health Care has a full range of Seniors Support Services aimed at preserving quality of life and allowing seniors to remain in their homes. So you can retire here without having to worry about the future.
