Russell is a town in Ontario in Canada. It has a population of about 5,000 or so. While Russell is part of the officially designated National Capital Region, it is usually considered to be part of Eastern Ontario.

Russell is located just to the west of Embrun, which is considered by some people to be Embrun's "sister town" since the two share a municipality and are quite close together (about 3 kilometres/1.5 miles) by Eastern Ontario standards, although there are significant differences: Embrun has 8,000 people compared to Russell at 5,000 and Embrun is mainly French and Russell is mainly English (although that distinction has been blurred in recent years as Embrun becomes more English and the francophone minority in Russell starts to expand).

==Get in==Like most Towns and Villages in Eastern Ontario, Russell is most accessible by car. There are private bus companies that service the area but only during the commute hours. The Village is a ten minute drive south of the 417 at the boundary Rd. exit. It is also easily reached from the west, south and east by major regional roads.

Get around

Russell is a very square shaped village with equal growth on all sides. Most major facilities are a few minutes walk awau from the centre business core.
