Welcome to Embrun

At Valecraft, we’re all about family and bringing you closer to beautiful, family-oriented communities. That’s why we love Embrun. The small town of Russell, Ontario was recently ranked the 3rd best place to live in Canada, and it’s no wonder — this small town knows the importance of family to foster a positive and happy way of life in these peaceful countryside hills. The small community of Embrun is part of Russell and features the same family-oriented feel along with affordable pricing for large residential lots and very low crime rates. Embrun is a fantastic place to raise a family where you are guaranteed to have a high quality of life in a beautiful country-side home.

Today, we can help you cross the threshold into a lifestyle that’s a blend of city and country living: Place St. Thomas, our breathtaking Valecraft community in Embrun.

Take the little ones out on a sunny day to pick fresh, juicy strawberries. Family favourite activities include taking a drive to the Calypso Water Park which guarantees a day full of fun and laughter and a day trip to St. Albert cheese factory to get the best poutine the area has to offer!
