Litchfield is in a prime location in the Pontiac region. Surrounding the municipality of Campbell’s Bay to the north, Litchfield provides an opportunity to enjoy cottage life by the water or in the forest year-round; residents are far from each other, yet close to businesses and services in neighbouring municipalities. In addition to agriculture and the forest industry, Litchfield has other business opportunities for driven entrepreneurs.

- The Le Jardin éducatif du Pontiac is an organization that offers re-education, reintegration, and reorientation services for young people who are 6 to 17 years old and who have difficulty integrating into and adapting to their school, social, or family environments. One of the possibilities available to such young people is to become open to the agricultural community that surrounds them by growing and selling garden vegetables.
- Woodland Advantage, an organization that provides forest-related services, aims to promote the social and professional integration of adults who are 18 to 45 years old. They provide them with 24 weeks of work to allow them to acquire transferable skills and knowledge to help them navigate the labour market, giving them the “woodland advantage.”
Anything is possible
- Pontiac Industrial Park is a strategic location for the region’s economic development. It is one of the few industrial parks of its large size and is near the river, the province of Ontario, and the nation’s capital, Ottawa. There is still space to enter and develop an industry or to open a new factory!
- While most of its vast spaces are used for agriculture, Litchfield is lucky to be home to Mickey Creek Golf Course. In addition to a 9-hole golf course, it has a restaurant and a bar.
