Population: 17,435 [2022]
Municipality: Town of Petawawa

There is a reason why the slogan here is “Dynamic By Nature”. Alongside the
TransCanada Highway ]Hwy 17 and 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
along Hwy 17. 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, with it’s very tight-knit Military community, has been voted 2nd SAFEST
