Cumberland in Ontario.

 

Cumberland was a township in eastern Ontario, Canada, that existed from 1800 to 1999, when it was incorporated as the City of Cumberland. It ceased to be a separate municipality in 2001, when it was amalgamated into the city of Ottawa.

Cumberland was originally incorporated as a township in 1800 as part of Russell County. It took its name from Ernest Augustus I of Hanover, Duke of Cumberland. When an upper-tier Regional level of government was created in 1969 to replace neighbouring Carleton County, the township was removed from Russell County and incorporated into the new Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton.

The township comprised the eastern portion of the suburban Orléans area, and the communities of Cumberland (a village with the same name as the township), Notre-Dame-des-Champs, Sarsfield, Vars, Carlsbad Springs and Navan.

Almost 200 years after it was first incorporated, Cumberland became a city in 1999. City status was short-lived, however, as the municipality was amalgamated with Ottawa and all the other constituent municipalities of the Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton to form a new City of Ottawa in 2001.

According to the Canada 2001 Census, Cumberland had a population of 52,430.
