Algonquin Highlands is a township located in Haliburton County, Ontario, Canada. It has a population of 1,976. The northeastern section of the township is included in Algonquin Provincial Park.
The township was formed through the amalgamation of Stanhope and Sherborne et al. townships, the latter of which included McClintock, Livingstone, Lawrence and Nightingale. It was thereafter briefly known as the Township of Sherborne, Stanhope, McClintock, Livingstone, Lawrence and Nightingale until it was renamed to its current name in March 2001.
The township lacks a commercial center, but its municipal offices are located on North Shore Road, 5 km north of Carnarvon at 45°05′09″N 78°41′36″W. A satellite municipal office is located in Dorset, the main street of which straddles the border of Algonquin Highlands to the east and Lake of Bays to the west.
