The Neil Young Museum

Omemee is a community within the city of Kawartha Lakes, Ontario, Canada, formerly known as Victoria County. Omemee is one of the major communities in the Kawartha Lakes, as the proclaimed "city" is vastly rural and has but one major population centre. Omemee was the early childhood home of musician Neil Young and his father, sports writer, Scott Young and the subject of his famous song, Helpless.

The community has a population of 1,319 as of the 2001 Census. It is located between the City of Peterborough and the Town of Lindsay. Lindsay is the largest population centre in the city of Kawartha Lakes, and serves as the administrative centre as it did with Victoria County.

The now ghost town of Omemee, North Dakota was named after the Canadian Omemee, as the former's first post master hailed from the latter.
