The Village of Russell is part of the Township of Russell which in turn is located in the United Counties of Prescott and Russell which covers part of Eastern Ontario located immediately East of Ottawa.

Russell has a population of about 4,100 (+-) people, making it the second largest community in the township of Russell (Russell's neighbour to the east, Embrun, is the largest community in Russell Township). The town and has a significant number of schools - English Catholic Elementary and Secondary, English Public Elementary and Secondary and French Elementary school. This is a true bedroom community in the sense that there are no industries in and immediately around the village. Russell also has a summer swimming pool, a hockey arena, a library and a curling rink located right in the center of the village. The village also has its firehall on the south-end of the village and is policed by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP). The little Castor river (translated from french means "Beaver") meanders through the settlement in summer and offers a flat trail for snowmobiles during the winter. The vast majority of the residents work in the city of Ottawa whose core areas are located about 25 miles northwest of Russell. With the fusion of many outlying municipalities in 2001 the official Ottawa limits moved so close to Russell that in theory one could walk from Russell to Ottawa in a few minutes. The travel time to the nearest built-up areas of Ottawa is typically 20-25 minutes.
