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.
