Casselman is a village in eastern Ontariomarker, Canadamarker, in the United Counties of Prescott and Russell on the South Nation Rivermarker.

It is a small village on the Trans-Canada Highway 417 between Ottawamarker and Montrealmarker at the crossroads of Regional Road 7. Highway 138 to Cornwall and the USA is minutes away. It is served by a stationmarker on the Montreal-Ottawa VIA Rail train, twice a day in each direction.

Casselman is surrounded on all sides by The Nationmarker, since Casselman citizens refused to join the fusion of municipalities.

The village was named after Martin Casselman who built a sawmill near the site of the current town in 1844. The village installed modern water and sewer services that became operational in 1977.

Casselman hosts L'├ęcho d'un peuple, one of the biggest shows ever presented in Ontario.
