Bourget, Ontario

Bourget is a village in eastern Ontario, Canada near the Cobbs Lake Creek, in the city of Clarence-Rockland in the United Counties of Prescott and Russell.

During the 1920s, logging of the white pine forests in this area had left a barren sandy area then known as the "Bourget Desert". Since that time, millions of trees were planted and this area is now known as the Larose Forest. [http://sof.eomf.on.ca/Soil_and_Water/Policy_Factors/Protection_Forests/Case_Study/Larose_Forest/cs_history_of_larose_e.htm] Two major roads pass through Bourget: one of them, Russell Road, is used by commuters in the morning heading into Ottawa from the Eastern Ontario region; Road 138, which goes connects Rockland (north) to Casselman (south), is the second road passing through Bourget. This route is one of the only ones connecting the North to the South.

Bourget is slowly expanding. Many housing projects are forming up in the northern part of town and the small business sector is growing ever more in the heart of Bourget with the opening of a small strip mall.
