Smith-Ennismore-Lakefield is a township in central-eastern Ontario, in the County of Peterborough, on the Trent-Severn Waterway. It amalgamated Bridgenorth, Ennismore and the village of Lakefield to form the township of Smith-Ennismore-Lakefield.

Geography

The region is mostly rural, home to small villages and hamlets. Farms have been established on most of the flat areas that are intermixed between the rolling hills and lakes.

Economy

The region is in the heart of Ontario's eastern 'Cottage Country', where urban residents (mostly from the Toronto region) have cottages on many of the small lakes. Many of the retail and services offered in the region cater to this seasonal market.
