Township of Selwyn

Township of Selwyn logoThe Township of Selwyn was created by virtue of two amalgamations and one name change. The Township of Smith and the Township of Ennismore amalgamated on January 1st, 1998. The Township of Smith-Ennismore then amalgamated with the Village of Lakefield on January 1st, 2001. The Township changed its name to the Township of Selwyn in 2013.

The Township of Selwyn, situated north of the city of Peterborough, is bordered almost entirely by lakes. This largely rural township includes the urban communities of Lakefield and Bridgenorth, and the quaint historic hamlets of Ennismore, Young’s Point and Buckhorn. It is a diversified and active community known for its exceptional quality of life and for its location in the beautiful setting of the Kawarthas.

The Township of Selwyn boasts many attractions and events that enhance the quality of life for all residents. Along with the many beautiful lakes, parks and trails, the township also provides excellent recreational facilities, heritage and cultural sites, shopping, restaurants, festivals, entertainment and accommodations. Activities and events abound for our residents’ enjoyment.

Selwyn Township is strongly committed to community engagement and planning for its future. We have consulted with residents and business owners to adopt several guiding documents to help us make decisions and use our resources efficiently and effectively.
