Exploring Embrun: An Eastern Ontario Adventure 

If you enjoy the convenience of city life without the hustle and bustle of, say, the capital of Canada, we know a friendly place to visit or maybe call home. All you have to do is take a quick 30-minute drive heading southeast from Ottawa to find yourself at ease in Embrun, Ontario.  

Having doubled its population since 1980, Embrun stands out as one of the fastest-growing spots in Eastern Ontario but is still inching closer to reaching even 10,000 residents. What does that mean for you? There’s plenty to see and do, and Mini Storage is here to help show you why Embrun is brimming with potential. 

Let’s check it out together!

Is Embrun a Town or Village?
