The Township of South Algonquin

District of Nipissing

Welcome to South Algonquin

South Algonquin is located adjacent to the south-east corner of Algonquin Provincial Park and offers you an abundance of four-season wilderness experiences with our numerous lakes, rivers, streams and thousands of acres of crown land — here for you to explore.

Our area is well known for its hundreds of kilometers of recreational trails, offering snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and dogsledding during the winter months. Throughout the other seasons, South Algonquin offers hiking, ATVing, canoeing, kayaking, whitewater rafting, camping, hunting and fishing.

The fishing is great all year round, especially trout fishing. We have excellent small and large mouth bass fishing during their open season. Walleye and pike, having been introduced to the area more than twenty years ago, offer large trophies for the fishing enthusiast.

Notice of Zoning By-Law Amendment ZBA.2024-02 Short-Term Rental Accommodation

Staff have been getting a lot of inquiries regarding the Notice of Public Meeting for Zoning By-Law Amendment No. ZBA.2024-02 – Short-Term Rental Accommodation.

Please note that currently Short-Term Rental Accommodations are not a permitted use in any zone within the Township of South Algonquin. Therefore, any Short-Term Rental Accommodation operating as such are considered illegal. The proposed Zoning By-Law Amendment will recognize Short-Term Rental Accommodations in certain zones.

Below link is the draft Short-Term Rental Accommodation Zoning By-Law Amendment that will be presented to Council for consideration.

This Zoning By-Law Amendment is not a regulating by-law. A regulating by-law will be brought to council in the fall for consideration.
