Founded in 1989,
Cantley is one of the youngest municipalities in Quebec, and in recent years, it has attracted several new young families. People settle here for the large green spaces, the quality of the environment, and the incredible views of the hills and the river, which grant it a bucolic charm. Residents appreciate the space that Cantley offers in its residential neighbourhoods and the closeness to quality municipal and community services. Cantley has a population of over 10 000 inhabitants over an area of 134 square kilometres, and it is located about fifteen kilometres north of the urban centre of Ottawa-Gatineau.
