Welcome to the Kawartha Lakes task force of WikiProject_Canada, WikiProject_Ontario, WikiProject_Canadian communities.

Scope

A map of Kawartha Lakes showing its shape amongst its lakes and numbered roads. This image is available from Floydian with any lake, highway, county road, river, or settlement highlighted. It should be incorporated into every page that makes use of the {{City of Kawartha Lakes}}.



  • Kawartha Lakes is a city within the south-central portion of the Canadian province of Ontario. It was known as Victoria County prior to municipal restructuring in 2001. The scope of this project includes everything within the geographical borders of the city, including its lakes, numbered roads, villages, ghost towns/abandoned post offices, geographical features, etc.
