The Creative Economy is alive and well in Sensational Smiths Falls. With a mix of highly creative residents, arts and culture are well established in the community. Smiths Falls is home to the Smiths Falls Community Theatre,
a first class venue for the theatre and arts community created through the renovation and redevelopment of the Victoria Avenue Railway Station. Many juried artisans have made Smiths Falls their home and the community is working aggressively to develop and enhance the Town's creative capacity. Fresh ideas are welcome as are creative arts entrepreneurs who position themselves on the cutting edge.
The Rideau Canal, designated by UNESCO as Ontario's only World Heritage Site, offers an attractive scenic backdrop for creativity and runs through the community at its mid-point between Ottawa and Kingston. Just a one-hour drive from Ottawa and the Canada/US border, Smiths Falls is well positioned to meet the needs of the creative population in surroundings that provide limitless opportunities for all ages in a safe and secure setting.
