“I have lived in Smiths Falls for most of my life and I feel very blessed. Almost 5 yrs ago my husband and I bought A consignment store which is now called Michele’s Doorway To Splendour. I have been the chair of the DBA since the beginning of the year and I am so thrilled that I have such Passionate Board who you are willing to work as a team to make Smiths Falls a place that everyone will want to either visit or to put roots down. Looking forward to see the Progress will make in the near future. Smiths Falls is truly on THE RISE”

“When I received my visa to immigrate to Canada, I had the tough decision of choosing a place to settle. After doing a lot of research on climate, economics, demographics and lifestyle, the Smiths Falls area was the winner! It’s a human sized town where people matter, with fantastic architectural features and a growing economy. When I arrived from Europe, I felt the area was even better than I imagined, and I’ve since become a strong advocate of the town of Smiths Falls.
