Highlands Propane was founded in May 1991 by Owner Shawn Bellwood.
Highlands was a small seasonal business serving local Trailer Parks until the fall of 1992 when he expanded to serve residential and larger commercial propane accounts. Since then, the demand for propane as a heating fuel has continued to grow, and with that demand so did Highlands. As Highlands began to increase so did our service area, and so did our staff size. With the help of our wonderful family and staff, Highlands Propane has grown to be the only independently owned propane facility in the City of Kawartha Lakes.
Our goal at Highlands Propane is to provide our customers with professional services at economical prices. Our highly trained staff are always looking for better ways to serve our loyal customer base and potential new customers. Whether you are searching for a new propane provider, better delivery services, or quality installation or repair services, Highlands Propane is committed to making sure you receive the best possible experience.
Highlands Propane’s team of professionals are always working to provide the best customer service in the business whenever you need us. From our sales and service team, to our delivery drivers and office staff, Highlands Propane is here for your propane needs!

Shawn can typically be found at his desk managing dispatch with his brother Jim, and helping the staff out anyway he can. When Shawn isn't at his desk, he and his wife Jackie, enjoy travelling in their RV, spending time with their three shared children and watching Toronto Blue Jays baseball games. For many years, Shawn has volunteered for multiple non-profit organizations and local community events, he has always taken pride in giving back to the community that he grew up in and the community that continues to support him.
Jackie began her career in the propane industry back in 2009. Since she began working alongside her husband Shawn, she has focused on improving customer service and ensuring all of the staff are always up to date on what is up and coming for Highlands. Through her drive and determination, Jackie is always working hard to find ways to better improve Highlands operating systems, communication and how Highlands can better serve their customers. When Jackie isn't running around the office, she loves to spend time travelling with Shawn, taking their three dogs for long walks, and sitting by their pool relaxing with friends and family.
Jim is Shawn's younger brother, and has been a part of Highlands Propane for the past 26 years. Jim has always had a passion for the propane industry, this has lead him to be an active member with the Canadian Propane Association, and constantly furthering his knowledge of the industry. Jim, alongside Shawn, manages dispatch and manages the maintenance on Highlands fleet of propane delivery trucks, vans and equipment. When Jim isn't at the office he and his wife Sharon love camping in their RV or attending classic car shows with their three young children.
