West CarletonThe historic township of West Carleton is located in a rural area just west of Ottawa, past Kanata. Bounded in the north, by the Ottawa River, it includes the growing communites of Carp & Dunrobin. West Carleton township was created in 1974 as a result of the amalgamation of three townships which included Torbolton, Fitzroy, and Huntley. Like all surrounding communities, in 2001 West Carleton was amalgamated with the other ten municipalities in the Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton to become part of the city of Ottawa, Canada.
