About Clarence and the Town of Rockland

Travel just 15 minutes east from Orleans, past Cumberland along the Ottawa River and you reach the Town of Rockland, where you can get a home for a lot less than you would closer to the city. 

In 1868 William Cameron Edwards, a young entrepreneur and first postmaster who held timber rights in the area, established a sawmill at the McCaul point. In 1988 a link to the Grand Trunk Railway enabled wood and merchandise to be transported. Edwards named the area Rockland because of the rocky nature of the landscape. The post office dates from 1869.

In the 1970s Rockland had a population of only 3,500 and saw only 60-70 homes built annually. From 2000-2010 about 200 homes were built each year. At Canada Census 2021 it had a population of 26,505 and comprises a large francophone population.
