There is a reason why the slogan here is “Dynamic By Nature”. Nestled amongst majestic pine, birch & maple forests and set against the west bank of the Ottawa River with the mighty Petawawa River running through the Municipality, Petawawa has a stunning backdrop and a very strong community spirit. With the lovely Laurentian Hills across the river in Quebec and with Algonquin Park situated just west of the Town, Petawawa is a favourite stop for outdoor enthusiasts such as hikers, canoers, campers, kayakers, anglers & snowmobilers alike. Located 1.5-2 hrs north-west of Ottawa, in the Ottawa Valley and with a population of 17 187 (2016 Census), Petawawa is the most populous municipality in Renfrew County.
The name of Petawawa originates from a local Algonquin word, biidaawewe, meaning “where one hears a noise like this”. You can easily assume it refers to the raging Petawawa River in the springtime. Our climate here in Petawawa is a humid continental climate with long, cold, snowy winters (yes, you will want to purchase a snow blower) and warm, often humid, summers.
Petawawa has been voted 2nd SAFEST PLACE TO LIVE IN CANADA as per MacLean’s Magazine.
Petawawa’s primary employer is the Canadian Armed Forces Army Base; Garrison Petawawa. Most of Petawawa’s residents work as CAF Members (5,328) or DND civilian employees (936). Approximately 6,000 people directly connected to the base live in local communities between Deep River and Pembroke. The Garrison has an extensive infrastructure with 465 buildings and over 300 square km’s of property comprising the Petawawa Training Area.
Another major employer for the area is Canadian Nuclear Laboratories located close by in neighbouring Chalk River. CNL is a world leader in developing peaceful and innovative applications from nuclear technology through its expertise in physics, metallurgy, chemistry, biology and engineering. With over 3,000 employees working in the laboratory or project sites across the country, CNL delivers a range of nuclear services ranging from research and development, design and engineering to specialized technology, waste management and decommissioning.
