About Callander


Welcome to Callander, a quaint community on the shores of Lake Nipissing!

Located 15 kilometers south of North Bay, Callander’s lush trails and parks, sandy beaches and breathtaking sunsets provide a perfect backdrop for the downtown core. Callander offers the attractive qualities of small-town and country living along with the benefits of having a larger city close by. The combination of “best of both worlds” is why many of Callander’s 3,800 residents have chosen to call the community “home”. Residents and visitors alike also appreciate Callander’s friendly atmosphere, its rich cultural offering, its affordability and the many recreational opportunities available. Surrounded by water, farmland and trails, and next to major highways, Callander has become a four-season destination for tourism from near and far. We invite you to explore this beautiful part of Northern Ontario.
