Shifting paradiam graphic announcing the Innovative Solutions Canada ChallengeSeptember 21, 2018 –Canadian small businesses invited to develop innovative solutions to seven domestic plastics challenges

As the single-largest purchaser of goods and services, the federal government is using procurement in a new way to help Canadian small business owners commercialize their ideas and solve complex government challenges.
 

Through the Innovative Solutions Canada program, government departments are inviting small businesses to come up with innovative solutions in response to specific challenges they face. Winning small businesses may receive up to $150,000 to refine their research and development and, if accepted into Phase 2, receive up to $1 million to develop a working prototype. The government may then act as a first customer, helping these small businesses commercialize their innovations, scale up their business and create good jobs.
 

The Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Environment and Climate Change, today announced seven challenges related to domestic plastics on behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, the Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business and Export Promotion, the Honourable Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Natural Resources, and the Honourable Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport.
 

Environment and Climate Change Canada is challenging small businesses to:

1. Find smart packaging design and other solutions to reduce plastic waste

2. Find new ways to separate mixed plastics for recycling

3. Identify ways to reduce and recycle plastic construction waste
 

Fisheries and Oceans Canada is challenging small businesses to:

4. Find plastic-free ways to get fish from fish farms and the ocean to our plates

5. Find innovative new ways to manage old fishing equipment and debris and remove it from our waters
 

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and Natural Resources Canada are challenging small businesses to:

6. Turn leftover plant material from agriculture or forestry into compostable bioplastics
 

Transport Canada is challenging small businesses to:

7. Identify sustainable new ways to recycle or reuse and glass-fibre-reinforced plastic
 

Correctional Services Canada and Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada have also committed to launching plastic innovation challenges later this fall.
 

Innovative Solutions Canada is a key component of the Government’s Innovation and Skills Plan, a multi-year plan to make Canada a global innovation leader and prepare Canadians to succeed in tomorrow’s economy.

You should always stop to smell the roses or the wild flowers or stop and watch the birds or the deer or anything else you come across as you take in nature on a hike. Life isn’t about the destination it’s about the journey so go ahead and TAKE A HIKE!


Petawawa Terrace Provincial Park is located in the centre of Petawawa and is a Town jewel. There are several trails that range from 1 km to just over 6 km in length and will bring you through many various eco systems. This is a great afternoon activity for the entire family. The trail head is located right beside a neighbourhood park so it’s a great place to plan a picnic or a very short drive to Petawawa Point beach.


Nature and Woodland Trails are other short wooded trails located in Petawawa that let you explore other treed areas, marshes and build on that outdoor nature connection. Building a connection to nature for children and adults alike ensures we continue not to suffer from “nature deficit disorder”, get outside and explore.


Take the time to experience and explore Algonquin Provincial Park. From the 1.5 km picturesque view from the Barron Canyon trail or hiking to High Falls where you can try out the natural waterslide and go for a swim. Make it a couple of days and hike Western Uplands backpacking Trail (88 km) and experience what the wilderness offers as a true get away.


Get a hold of a GPS or download the app for your smartphone and check out geocaching. Find yourself trudging through the trees and turning over rocks to “find the prize”. Let the kids feel like explorers or pirates looking for treasure.

There is always a chance for you to get a paddle in the water here in Petawawa. Canoes, kayaks, SUPs and other water sports have a never-ending supply of adventure and experiences to be had here.
 
Petawawa is going to be your new paddling destination!  We are ideally located on both the Petawawa and the Ottawa Rivers.  Whether you are in search of a great place to teach the kids how to properly complete a J stroke, a quiet place to throw a fishing line in the water or somewhere to get your adrenaline running as you make your way down class II, III and IV rapids, we've got the water for you.  Get your paddle in your hands and get ready for a “choose your own adventure” experience.  If you love paddling you’re going to love Petawawa and its endless opportunities!
 

Lessons and rentals are available in the months of July and August at Petawawa Point Beach (613) 687 5678. Rental boats or boards are very reasonable.  With miles of flatwater, there are suken ships to explore and the opportunity to paddle the orignial fur trade routes on the mighty historique Ottawa River has volumes of stories to tell. 

Looking to find out more? Petawawa is home to the Petawawa Canoe and Kayak Club which meets for social evening paddles and informal get-togethers. The Petawawa River Rats are a whitewater kayak club that meets weekly at Centennial Park (Catwalk Rapids) and gives new paddlers the chance to try out kayaking or work on their paddling skills. The club has boats and safety gear you can use if you want to see what the hype is all about!

Meet friendly paddlers and like minded outdoor enthusiasts during the Upper Ottawa River Race and Paddle Festival and take part in races, kayak fishing derby, heritage paddle or a social paddle as a fundraiser for CHEO. A full weekend of activities for beginner and experienced paddlers alike.



 

Hell or High Water is a down river race on the Petawawa River that takes place in the month of May each year. Put your skills and courage to the test as you can race down the river in kayaks, canoes or rafts. Watch or take part in dragon boat racing as part of the weekend event as well. Get a team together and get you game face on for one of many chances to compete!  www.HOHW.ca
 

If you want to explore the Ottawa River flatwater canoes, kayaks and SUPs are available for rent at Petawawa Point beach by the hour or for the day. There’s many great places to explore by yourself or with the entire family. This is a great activity to be outdoors and to be active!
 

SAFETY FIRST! Put your safety first. Always wear a PFD and have your safety kit with you, which should include a bailer, whistle, floating rope (15m) and a waterproof flashlight. Go paddling with a friend or tell someone where you’re going and never go out paddling when under the influence!

Whether you want to relive those  childhood memories, continue your memory from your camping trip last weekend or want to create those first time memories for you and your family, Petawawa is going to be the place you want to visit.


Petawawa is the gateway into the east gate of world renowned Algonquin Provincial Park. You can drive in for the weekend or go canoe camping for a week in the interior. Experience nature and wildlife at its best, make sure to bring a camera to catch those forever moments.


There is always an opportunity to be a little more wild. There are several opportunities to experience the back country. Get your paddle in your hand and head deep into Algonquin Park or paddle to the other side of the Ottawa River and experience the Dumoine River, from tame flatwater trips to full on whitewater excursions. There are  several outfitters and guides in the area to help you set up a shuttle or guide a fully planned trip for you and your family or a bunch of friends on a weekend away.


For those of you who want to try something new and a little different, sections of Algonquin Park are open year Round. Experience camping through a new fresh pair of eyes. The park takes on a whole new beauty and the great part is no mosquitoes and the bears are hibernating so there are a few perks to get you wanting to try camping when there’s a little snow on the ground.


SAFETY – No matter how long or short your trip is always tell someone where you are going and the details. Make sure to pack enough food and water. And don’t forget whatever you bring in make sure to bring it back out – Leave No Trace!

Formerly known as the Temiskawa Waterway, the Ottawa River Waterway has something for everyone. Whatever your travel plans - perhaps just a day of boating, or cruising for a week or two - the Ottawa's scenic waters are exactly what you've been looking for in a uniquely different boating adventure. Anywhere along the way you can nose into shore, pitch a tent and build a fire on shore or dock at a marina and head to a hotel or even spend your nights at anchor.


Join us for a tour of the waterway as it winds its way from Notre-Dame-Du-Nord, at the head of Lake Temiskaming and then down the Ottawa River for almost 500 kilometres, to Arnprior, just outside of Ottawa.

Walk Smart - Walk Safe

Be Ready and Be Safe
If you are just starting out with physical exercise or have a medical condition that may impact your participation in walking for exercise contact your physician to confirm this is the activity for you. Start slowly there’s no point in walking a thousand miles on your first time out. Make sure to stretch before each outing.


Walk Facing Traffic
If there is no sidewalk and you must walk on the side of the road, choose the side where you are facing oncoming traffic. This gives you the best chance to see traffic that may be approaching you.


Cross Safely
Mom was right: look both ways before crossing any street. At controlled intersections, it is wise to cross only when you have the pedestrian crossing light, but even then, drivers and bikers may have a green light to turn and won't be expecting you to be in the crosswalk. Make eye contact with any drivers who may be turning. Give them a wave. Make sure they see you.


Walk Single File
Unless you are on a sidewalk separated from the road or a wide bike lane, you should walk in single file. This is especially important on a road with lots of curves, where traffic has only a split second chance of seeing you. While it can be enjoyable to walk down the road two to three abreast chatting merrily, drivers may not expect it.


Stay Aware of Bikes and Runners
Share the road and path with bikes and runners. Bike riders should alert you when approaching from behind with a bike bell or a "passing on the left/right." Listen for them, and move to walk single file, allowing them to pass safely. Runners should also call out for passing. Bike-pedestrian collisions can result in serious injuries for either — and you aren't wearing a helmet.


Be Visible
Wear bright colors when walking during the daytime. When walking at night, wear light-colored clothing and reflective clothing or a reflective vest to be visible. Drivers are often not expecting walkers to be out after dark, and you need to give them every chance to see you, even at street crossings that have crossing signals. Be just as cautious at dawn or twilight, as drivers still have limited visibility or may even have the setting or rising sun directly in their eyes.


Be Predictable
Make a practice of staying on one side of the path while walking rather than weaving randomly from side to side. Watch your arm motions, or you may end up giving a black eye to a silently passing walker, runner or biker.


Keep the Volume Down
Don't drown out your environment with your iPod. Keep the volume at a level where you can still hear bike bells and warnings from other walkers and runners.


Hang Up and Walk
Chatting on a cell phone while you walk is as dangerous as chatting while driving. You are distracted and not as aware of your environment. You are less likely to recognize traffic danger, passing joggers, bikers or tripping hazards.


Have Fun
Enjoy your walk! Go with a friend, listen to the birds in the trees or sing while you walk! If you are having fun, it won’t seem like exercise.


Walking Facts


Nordic/ Urban Walking
Nordic or Urban Walking is a quickly growing activity. Nordic walking offers all the benefits of walking but with the addition of an upper body workout. The poles used are specialty designed to transmit vibration forces experienced while walking. They offer increased support for those with balance issues and provide for improved postural control. Nordic walking offers a great workout for women during and after pregnancy, individuals with osteoporosis, arthritis or for individuals who enjoy walking and are simply looking for a better workout. Make sure to research more online.


Walking For Exercise: Fun and Effective!
Wondering whether walking for exercise is an effective form of physical activity? The answer is YES! It is considered by many to be a near-perfect exercise. There are many reasons why it is so good for you: Emotional and physical benefits, such as improved moods, toned muscles, reduced risk of memory loss and some cancers. It’s a great way to burn calories. In fact, you can burn over 200 calories an hour. There is virtually no risk of injury and walking is easier on your muscles, joints, back and knees than more intense activities like jogging. Walking for exercise is equivalent to walking to improve your fitness and health.


To determine if you are physically ready to begin any fitness routine you can take the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (Par-Q). If you are between the ages of 15 and 69, the PAR-Q will tell you if you should check with your doctor before you start walking. Most people should aim to walk 10,000 steps a day. That's equivalent to walking five miles per day. Those who are already very active should try to walk even more than 10,000 steps per day.


Is All Walking Considered Exercise?
In order to maintain your current weight, lose weight and strengthen your cardiovascular system, you should keep a brisk pace. This is a pace that is quick enough to elevate your heart rate to 60% to 80% of its maximum. This is known as your target heart rate zone. Keeping your heart rate within your target heart rate zone will strengthen your heart and lungs, making them more efficient and reducing your risk of cardiovascular disease. Here are some easy tips to calculate target heart rate.


There are techniques that will rev up your walking workout and maximize your calorie burning potential. Consider interval walking, walking on the beach, and walking backwards to really shed the fat and calories fast while improving your fitness level. If you'd like to walk and meet new friends, consider mall walking. It's a great way to exercise in a safe place, especially when there is a blizzard or heat wave outside! If you're short on time and need to add more steps to your day, consider walking in place.


Need Motivation?
Solo walking can be peaceful and therapeutic. You’ll find the quiet time allows you to collect your thoughts and organize your mind. There are other times, however, when you need some motivation to get out the door. The beauty of walking is that your spouse, kids or dog can keep you motivated by joining you on your walks. You can also join a walking group. Many neighborhoods have one or start your own! You can even start a lunchtime walking group with your coworkers.


When you are ready to incorporate strength training into your routine to build lean muscle mass, which will increase your metabolism, try these walking exercises. They are quick and easy and can fit into any exercise routine. Walking for exercise is an effective way to improve your physical fitness, lose weight and just feel great in body and mind. Because it is free, easy to do and has little risk for injury, it truly is a near-perfect exercise.


Just remember, it’s like a child trying food for the first time “you can’t say you don’t like it if you don’t try it at least once”!


Stretching Tips
 

Stretch Before You Walk
A significant amount of injuries occur due to the fact that your muscles are “not ready” to be used. Like a car in winter you have to let it “warm-up” before you take it out on the road. The following are examples of stretches you may want to consider before heading out for a walk. You will discover other stretches that will better suit yourself and your routine. Please refer to the next pages for examples of various stretches you can start with.
 

Hamstring Stretch
Sit tall with both legs fully outstretched. Flex your right knee so that the right foot rests comfortably along your left inner thigh, with the right knee as close as possible to the floor. Keeping your spine long and your shoulders down away from your ears, lunge forwards from the hips to reach forward to your left foot. Go as far forwards as possible, then relax your spine to reach even further forwards, holding this stretch position. You will feel the stretch along the back of the outstretched leg, and along the inside and rear of the flexed leg. Repeat with the other leg, breathing easily throughout.

 
Quadricep Stretch
Standing next to something for balance, raise the leg you wish to stretch behind you and grab hold of your foot. The upper part of the leg should remain in a vertical position as you pull your foot upwards.  A slight variation in this stretch is to pull your foot back slightly; this will help stretch other areas of the quadriceps. Be careful not to pull your leg to the side. It may put an unneeded stress on your knee.

 
Overhead Reach
Stand with your feet hip distance apart. Reach up with one arm and then reach over your head and to the opposite side. Keep your hips steady and your shoulders straight. Relax and repeat with the other side.  While standing on one leg lift the other foot off the floor. Gently point your toe and rotate your ankle. Do about ten circles in each direction. This exercise can be performed while standing, sitting, or lying on your back with leg raised.
 

Calf Stretch
Place both hands at shoulder height on a wall or pole in front of your body. Keep your arms fairly straight and your lead leg bent under your body. Now, place the heel of your rear leg 1½ to 2 feet behind your body. Keeping your rear leg fairly straight but not locked in position; place the heel of this foot on the ground.  You should feel a stretch down the outer part of your rear-leg calf muscle. If you don’t, try moving your rear foot back a little farther (remember to place your heel back on the ground after you move your foot back). Throughout the stretch, your upper body should remain vertical and straight; do not bend forward. Alternate legs.

Canoeing, Kayaking and Stand Up Paddle (SUP) Boarding are great ways to explore new waters, a great low impact exercise and an easy way to relax and enjoy the great outdoors and experience what nature has to offer. But first and foremost we must always put our safety first.

According to the Canadian Coast Guard the following are the minimum requirements when operating a Canoe, Kayak or SUP:


Minimum Required Safety Equipment for boats less than 6m


Personal Protection Equipment
 

  • one Canadian-approved personal flotation device (pfd) or lifejacket of appropriate size for each person on board
  • one buoyant heaving line of not less than 15 m in length (floating rope)


Boat safety equipment
 

  • one manual propelling device (paddle)
  • one bailer or one manual water pump (bucket or bilge pump)
  • Stand Up Paddleboards require the use of a leash at all times


Navigation equipment
 

  • a sound-signaling device or a sound-signaling appliance (whistle)
  • navigation lights if the pleasure craft is operated after sunset and before sunrise or in periods of restricted visibility (flashlight)


The Town of Petawawa Parks and Recreation department would also strongly recommends the following safety procedures:
 

  1. Your safety kit should remain with boat at all times and be within reach.
  2. PFD is proper fitting. Buckles and zippers must be closed at all times.
  3. There may be a chance your boat capsizes are you comfortable swimming. Know or learn how to safely get back into your boat.
  4. Have you canoed, kayaked and/or been on a S.U.P. take a lesson or paddle with experienced people who can teach you the skills required.
  5. Review safe boating areas and techniques. Stay away from motor boat channels and do not go near rapids.
  6. Review the maximum number of paddlers per craft. Do not overload your boat.
  7. Paddle with other people and always let someone know where you are going and when you plan to return


Lessons

Want to learn or improve your technique before boating or boarding the Town of Petawawa offers private and group lessons at Petawawa Point Beach. To book your time call 613-687-5678 ex: 2102

“Where it’s recess all the time!”
 

It wasn’t that long ago when all you could think of was, when is that recess bell going to ring so I can go outside and just PLAY?

Petawawa is located only an hour and a half west of Ottawa. Situated between the Petawawa River and the Ottawa River it is an ideal place for getting on the water.

If you are hearing the call of the wild it’s coming from Petawawa.

Get that old bike out and tuned up or get the family together for a day at the beach. The possibilities and adventures are endless here in Petawawa, from miles of flat water to swim, canoe and fish or world class whitewater to get your adrenaline going. If you would rather keep your feet dry you can enjoy nature walks in Petawawa Terrace Provincial Park or grab your backpack and tent and you can head out into the beauty that Algonquin Park wilderness has to offer.
 

If you’re looking for more of a relaxed paced experience in nature, enjoy various walking loops, bird watching and the Millennium and Woodland Trails.  Don’t forget your snowshoes, for miles of trails that you can choose from.

The Town issues a final tax bill for the residential, farmland and managed forest tax classes with two installments – one due at the end of July and one due at the end of October.  Final tax bills for commercial, industrial and multi-residential tax classes are also issued with two installments – one due at the end of August and one due at the end of November.  The final tax bill includes any special charges such as garbage, water and/or sewer.


Property Tax Payment Options


The Town of Petawawa offers several payment options to remit property taxes including:
 

  • Internet & Telephone Banking – This payment option is available with most major banks – use your 19 digit roll number as your account number and search “Petawawa” to locate account name e.g. “Petawawa, Town of – Tax Acct”.
  • By Mail – Send your payment to the Town of Petawawa, 1111 Victoria Street, Petawawa ON  K8H 2E6 – don’t forget to include either the stub from your tax bill or a note with payment information.
  • At a Bank or Financial Institution – Contact your financial institution for further information – bank service charges may apply.

Both the Petawawa and Ottawa Rivers hold numerous species of game fish.

    Species include Walleye; known by locals as pickerel, sauger, northern pike, muskellunge, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, rock bass, yellow perch, channel catfish, brown bullhead, long nose gar, bluegill, pumpkinseed, black crappie, common carp, red horse sucker, common ling, mooneye, lake sturgeon, and fresh water drum.


    KAYAK FISHING


    Kayak Fishing contiunues to grow in popularity as we see more and more kayaks out on the lakes and rivers. Allowing for access to spots you could never reach by boat or as a way to get back in touch with nature in an active way. Want to try you hand at Kayak Fishing you can rent kayaks at Petawawa Point Beach during the summer months for only $7.50 per hour. Want to take the next step....make sure to check out the Upper Ottawa Kayak Fishing Derby as a part of the Upper Ottawa River Race and Paddle Festival.


    OTHER LOCATIONS TO FISH


    Lemke Lake, located at Doran road and Highway 17 is a favorite for families. The Ministry of Natural Recourses annually stocks speckled trout in Lemke Lake as a put and take lake. It is easily accessible and there is plenty of parking available. Algonquin Park has over 1,500 lakes and 1,200 kilometers of streams and has 54 different recorded species of fish in the Park. In addition, Algonquin Park is home to some of the finest Brook Trout and Lake Trout fishing in the world! Anglers typically target walleye as the number one fish for table fare, musky and pike for their fighting abilities and bass for tournament anglers.


    Most species can be securely caught and landed using medium weight rods in the 6’6 range with line strength at 8-10 pounds. If anglers are looking to catch and release make sure to use a net to return fish unharmed.


    Abundant municipal and provincial lands are available and accessible for bank fishing throughout Petawawa. Ensure proper footwear is worn as river banks can pose common dangers and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Don’t forget your appropriate fishing license and pick up a copy of the Ontario provincial regulations on fishing as many species mentioned above have season and slot limits.


    For more information on fishing in Petawawa, please call the Petawawa Parks and Recreation Department at 613-687-5678 or visit the Ontario MNR at www.mnr.gov.on.ca

    Petawawa's water treatment facility was upgraded to a state of the art, fully automated plant in 1993.  Thanks to the forward thinking Council of the day, residents of the community have the benefit of utilizing water that complies with and surpasses the highest drinking water standards in the industry. The process consists of flocculation, sedimentation, clarification, and filtration, and finally, chlorination.  All of these modern day processes are in place to ensure the highest quality drinking water.


    Located on the southern shore of the Ottawa River and surrounded by Garrison Petawawa, the facility is rated at 21,500 cubic metres/day and at present day, is running at less than half of its rated capacity.  All aspects of the treatment process are continually monitored and alarmed, 24 hours per day, seven days per week.  Routine samples are collected and analyzed for microbiological, chemical, volatile organics, inorganics and pesticides on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis.

    The Province is now allowing municipalities to tailor the vacant rebate and reduction programs for their communities and local businesses with these changes being implemented through regulation.  Upper and single tier municipalities that decide to change the programs must notify the Minister of Finance and provide details of the proposed changes along with a council resolution.

    A staff recommendation has been presented to the Renfrew County Council to eliminate the vacancy rebate program in 2018.  This recommendation would apply to all lower tier municipalities within the County of Renfrew.

    For further information, please see the Vacant Unit Rebate and Vacant/Excess Land Classes insert.  If you would like to provide comments regarding the proposed changes to the 2018 (and future years) vacancy rebate program within Renfrew County, please reply before October 31, 2017 to:

    A Commissioner of Oaths (also known as a Commissioner for Taking Affidavits) is a person authorized to take your oath or solemn affirmation when you sign an affidavit or a statutory declaration.
     

    What is an Oath?
     

    An oath is a solemn declaration of one’s words by which a person signifies that he/she is bound in conscience to perform an act faithfully and truthfully.  The oath is used to encourage if not to ensure that the truth be spoken.
     

    What is an Affirmation?
     

    An affirmation is a solemn declaration that serves the same purpose as an oath if an oath is objectionable to the person on religious or ethical grounds.
     

    What is an Affidavit?
     

    An affidavit is a document containing statements that are verified by the swearing of an oath or by an affirmation.  Affidavits are generally used for the purpose of establishing legal rights and may be required to attest to a certain fact or set of facts.
     

    There are four parts to an affidavit:
     

    1. Identification of the person giving the affidavit (deponent or affiant);
    2. Body of the affidavit, which provides the evidence or the statement of facts;
    3. The signature of the deponent; and
    4. Jurat – including the signature of the Commissioner taking the affidavit.  The jurat is the certificate of the commissioner before whom the document was sworn.  It sets out the location of where the oath was administered and the date of the oath.  By signing the jurat, the commissioner is certifying that he or she has administered the oath to the deponent.  If exhibits are attached to the affidavit, then the commissioner must also sign the exhibits certifying them to be part of the affidavit.


     

    A Commissioner does not certify that the statements being made in the affidavit or statutory declaration are true, but only certifies that an oath or solemn affirmation has been administered properly.
     

    “Every oath and declaration shall be taken by the deponent in the presence of the commissioner, notary public, justice of the peace or other officer or person administering the oath or declaration who shall satisfy himself or herself of the genuineness of the signature of the deponent or declarant and shall administer the oath or declaration in the manner required by law before signing the jurat or declaration.”  (Commissioners for Taking Affidavits Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. C.17, s. 9)
     

    Commissioner of Oaths service is offered at the Town of Petawawa municipal office.  These endorsements include but are not limited to oaths, affirmations and affidavits.  Since the nature of documents varies greatly, it is strongly recommended that you contact the Town of Petawawa prior to your visit to confirm that your attestation can be commissioned by one of our staff members.
     

    Furthermore, it is important to note that the Town of Petawawa’s Commissioners of Oaths cannot notarize documents.  A list of notary publics or lawyers can be found in your local telephone directory.  Commissioners of Oaths are also not authorized to certify documents as true copies.
     

    Once you are certain the Town of Petawawa can commission your document, you may visit the Town of Petawawa municipal office located at 1111 Victoria Street, Petawawa, during regular business hours; although it is recommended that you call ahead (613-687-5536) to ensure that a Commissioner is available.  The request for the Commissioner of Oaths service must be made by the same individual taking the oath and signing the document.  You must present one original piece of photo identification in the form of government-issued photo identification (i.e. a valid driver’s licence, a valid passport, a valid age-of-majority card).  If your identification and/or document is in a language other than English or French, an official translation of the identification and/or document may be required.  The deponent must sign the affidavit in the presence of the Commissioner.  If the document has already been signed, the person will be asked to sign a second time in front of the Commissioner.  Any changes that have been made in the body of the document that are present at the time of signing must be initialed by both the deponent and the Commissioner.  Any changes that are not initialed may be deemed to have been fraudulently changed after being commissioned and invalidate the document.  If your affidavit requires both a witness and a Commissioner signature, you must provide your own witness.  The Commissioner cannot prepare affidavits or provide you with any advice with respect to the documents you are swearing.  You need to read and fully understand the documents yourself.  The Commissioner reserves the right to refuse to commission documents.
     

    Periodically, municipal officials are named as persons able to certify documents for such purposes as applications for Canada Pension, Old Age Security etc.  Any such certification will be noted as limited to the purpose for which it was obtained and this service will be provided only where the customer supplies evidence that the municipal official is explicitly authorized to certify the document.
     

    There is no fee for this service.
     

    If you require commissioning services please visit the Town Office or call 613-687-5536.

    • 278.4 m3 Raw water well
    • Three low lift pumps rated at 22,910 m3/d
    • 4.65 m3/d rapid mix tank
    • 595 m3/d flocculation tanks
    • 458.3 m2 Clarifiers
    • 1,650 m3 clearwell
    • Three high lift pumps rated at 20,945 m3/d
    • Wastewater clarifiers that discharge settled sludge to the sanitary sewer


    Raw Water Source


    The source of water treated by the Petawawa water plant is the Ottawa River at a widening in the river called Allumette Lake. The 760 mm diameter intake pipe extends 490m into the river at approximately 6m +1- under the surface and 1.5m off of the bottom of the river.  This raw water intake pipe has a capacity of 21,500 cubic meters per day, gravity fed to the raw water well, and is supported at the end with a concrete and timber crib.


    Screening


    A vertical stainless steel coarse screen in the Raw water well of the low lift area of the building removes any large debris such as weeds, fish, etc.


    Low Lift Pumps


    There are three low lift pumps that lift the water from river level via a 400 mm header to the flash mix tanks.  From there the water flows via gravity through the various plant processes.


    Chemical Feed System


    Pre-hydroxylated Aluminum sulphate (PAS-8) and a polyelectrolyte are used to create a 'floc'. The floc captures suspended particles (colour, dirt, etc.) which may be found in the raw water.  This 'capture' process aids in their removal. The pH adjustment is achieved by the addition of Sodium Bicarbonate, pre and post treatment.


    Flash Mix Tank


    This 50 m3 tank provides the necessary mixing or blending of the raw water and the added coagulants.


    Contact Tanks


    Following the mixing and coagulation in flash mix tank it is necessary to gently agitate the chemically treated water in the flocculation tanks to promote particle collision and formation of larger floc.


    Clarification


    The floc created by the coagulation is settled in the clarifiers.  The rectangular clarifiers rely on slow longitudinal flow to allow enough time for the particles to settle. These particles are collected by a tracvac sludge vacuum system.  This system transfers the settled sludge to two wastewater tanks for water separation and disposal.


    Filters


    The plant is equipped with three dual media (sand/antharcite) filters.  The filters remove particles (suspended solids) that are present in the raw water, as well as compounds that cause taste and odours. Filters are washed regularly on a backwash cycle to prevent any buildup on the filters.


    Pre Chlorination


    Pre-chlorination of chlorine gas and water is added to the clarifier effluent channel to assist in the removal of color, help control tastes and odour, and/or to oxidize organic and inorganic elements.


    Post Chlorination


    Chlorine gas is added to the water as it enters the clearwell.  Sufficient amounts of chlorine is used to disinfect the treated water and to provide a chlorine residual which remains in the distribution system.  This ensures water quality protection to the customers' location.


    The clearwell provides water storage for the high lift pumps and has 1650 cubic meters of total storage capacity.


    High Lift Pumps


    There are three high lift pumps that discharge the treated water into a 500 mm header that connects into a 400 mm line and a 500 mm line leaving the plant and connecting into the distribution system.


    Standby Power


    A 325 kW diesel generator is located at the water treatment plant to provide power to essential equipment to ensure a continuous supply of water during power failures.


    Elevated Tank


    There are four functional towers in the Town of Petawawa, as of August 2010.  A 2,250 m3 tower located on DND south townsite, and a 4,500 m3 tower located on Woodland Crescent. The third tower is located on Tower Road, having a capacity of 2,250 m3.  A fourth tower has been commissioned on the property of CFB Petawawa that has a capacity of 3,785 m3, totaling 12,785 m3 or approximately 1,000,000 gallons of water storage.  Once the new tower is fully operational, maintained by OCWA staff, the south townsite elevated tank will  be decommissioned.


    Distribution System


    Approximately 11,475 people are supplied with water from the Petawawa Water Treatment Plant.

    • Water in the early morning or evening. If you sprinkle your lawn under the hot sun, you'll lose as much as 30 percent of your water to evaporation.
    • Lawns can only absorb water so fast. It's better to water your lawn for three 10 minute sessions-with each session a half-hour apart than it is to water steadily for 30 minutes and cause run-off.
    • Landscaping that stresses, proper soil preparation, efficient irrigation and the use of water stingy plants means less maintenance and lower water usage.
    • Keep grass at least two inches high to shade roots and hold moisture.
    • Use mulch around plants to reduce evaporation and promote growth.
    • Water trees slowly, deeply and infrequently to encourage deep rooting.


    Inside Tips
     

    • Dripping faucets and leaky toilets account for a large portion of home water waste.
    • Bathing is the second highest use of indoor water, a five minute shower is all that is needed.
    • The toilet is a big guzzler of indoor water. Installing an ultra-low flow (1.6 gal/flush) toilet is an excellent way of reducing flows.
    • Install low flow (2.2 glas/minute) aerators on bathroom and kitchen faucets.
    • Run the dishwasher and washing machine only when they are full.
    • Keep a pitcher of drinking water in the refrigerator.


    Outdoor Tips
     

    • Use a broom to clean the driveway.
    • Adjust your sprinklers so that the lawn is watered but not the driveway or the house.
    • When washing the car use biodegradable soap and water from a bucket of hose with a shut-off nozzle.


    Common Water Uses
     

    • Clothes Washing - 133 - 189 liters per load (30-42 gal)
    • Dish Washing (by hand) - 38 liters per meal (8 gal)
    • Dish Washing (dishwasher) - 227 liters per load (49 gal)
    • Showering - 19 - 23 liters per minute (4-5 gal)
    • Showering - (low flow head) - 9.5 liters per minute (2 gal)
    • Washing hands - 8 liters (1.8 gal)
    • Brushing teeth (water running) - 8-15 liters (1.8-3.3 gal)
    • Car washing - 380 liters per car (84 gal)
    • Yard washing - 19-38 liters per minute (4-8 gal)
    • Flushing toilet (Standard) - 22 liters per flush (5 gal)
    • Flushing toilet (water-saver model) - 13 liters per flush (3 gal)
    • Flushing toilet (low consumption model) - 6 liters per flush (1.3 gal)


    Bathroom
     

    • A dripping faucet may waste up to 800 liters (175 gal) of water per week.
    • Check pipe and faucets for leaks.
    • Turn off the water when brushing teeth or shaving.
    • Replace old showerhead with a good quality high efficiency showerhead.
    • Limit showers to five minutes.
    • Check your toilet for leaks by placing dye tablets in the toilet tank and check the bowl for traces of color after 15 minutes.
    • Place a 2 liter plastic bottle filled with water in the toilet tank.
    • Stop using your toilet as a waste basket.


    Kitchen and Laundry Tips
     

    • Install water efficient faucets aerators.
    • Run your dishwasher and washing machines only when they are full.
    • When washing dishes by hand, don't let the water run freely to rinse. Fill up the second side of your sink with rinse water.
    • Keep a pitcher of drinking water in your refrigerator.
    • Typically at least 50% of water consumed by households is used outdoors.
    • Use a broom when cleaning the driveway.
    • Water your lawn no more than every third day.
    • Adjust your sprinklers so the lawn is watered and not the house or the sidewalk.
    • Check your house air-conditioning source seasonally.

In 1968 a Water Treatment Plant was constructed by DND, a class 3 direct filtration plant.


    In 1976, the Ministry of the Environment requested the water quota to the Village of Petawawa be increased to 3,180 m3/d of its 14,500m3/d capacity.  This request initiated several studies into the need for system expansion.


    In 1989, the Department of National Defense announced an expansion to Garrison Petawawa and their intent to recall the water quota allocated to the Village of Petawawa.  The Village of Petawawa was then given the option to own and operate the plant and pay for the upgrading needed to provide the additional capacity for their use.


    October 30,1992, the contract was awarded for the expansion of the Water Treatment Plant.


    The present plant has a rated capacity of 21,500 m3/d and is located on Lot 26, Lake Range, Town of Petawawa on the southern shore of the Ottawa River surrounded by Garrison Petawawa.

In keeping with the Town's 'dynamic by nature' outlook, Town officials chose to upgrade the facility to a full secondary treatment process. This newly upgraded plant would include primary treatment, secondary treatment, Sequencing Batch Reactivator (SBR) technology, UV disinfection, sludge thickening process, as well as a full biosolids utilization program.

    The new facility uses cutting edge technology that is completely biological, meaning that no chemicals are used in the treatment process, therefore no chemicals or chemical by-products are passed on to the receiving stream, which in this case is the Ottawa River.


    The disinfection process uses Ultraviolet light, which again is a completely environmentally friendly technology.

    The facility serves the Town, which includes both CFB Petawawa Town sites, encompassing a population of over 15,000.


    The plant is rated at 8730 cubic meters/day, with a peak day flow of 17460 cubic meters/day. Presently, the facility is operating at approximately 5400 cubic meters/day, which gives the Town ample capacity to handle its projected growth and community requirements, with no foreseeable upgrades required until the year 2018.


    The Town of Petawawa has contracted the services of the Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA) to maintain and operate both the Wastewater Facilities as well the Water Treatment Facilities.

    <![CDATA[Anaerobic Sludge Digestion]]>http://www.petawawa.ca/residents/public-works/wastewater-treatment-and-collection/anaerobic-sludge-digestion.htmlhttp://www.petawawa.ca/residents/public-works/wastewater-treatment-and-collection/anaerobic-sludge-digestion.htmlThu, 15 Dec 2016 12:34:02 -0700Anaerobic sludge digestion is a process typically employed at many wastewater treatment plants to treat (or stabilize), the various primary and secondary sludges produced. Anaerobic sludge digestion also reduces odours and bacteria levels, decreases the amount of solids present in the sludge (and hence hauling costs), and produces energy in the form of methane and carbon dioxide gases which can be utilized as an energy source at the facility.


    As the name implies, stabilization of sludges occur in the absence of oxygen.  Digestion occurs in three stages.  In the first stage, complex solid organics, cellulose, proteins, lignins and lipids are broken down by extracellular enzymes into soluble organic fatty acids, alcohols, carbon dioxide and ammonia.  In the second stage, the products of the first stage are converted into various organic acids and alcohols by acid forming microorganisms.  In the third stage, two forms of methane-forming bacteria convert hydrogen and carbon dioxide to methane and acetate to methane and carbon dioxide.


    The rate limiting stage (i.e. the stage which is the slowest) controls the process.  This is usually stage three since the methane forming bacteria reproduce very slowly.  These methane bacteria are also very sensitive to environmental factors such as pH, alkalinity, temperature and toxins and, therefore, the control of these factors is very important to control the digestion process.


    Anaerobic sludge digestion can involve a conventional standard-rate single stage process; a high rate continuous-flow stirred process or; a two-stage process.


    The two stage process (utilized at the Petawawa WPCP) incorporates a first stage (primary) digesters and a second stage (secondary) digesters. Digestion occurs in the primary digester vessel.  Raw sludges are sent to the primary digester where they are mixed and heated usually through circulation lines and by gas mixing equipment.


    Digested sludge is then transferred to the secondary digesters. The secondary digester serves four purposes: as a storage vessel for digested solids, as a standby primary tank, as a source for seed, and, as a quiescent basin for supernatant withdrawal.  Sludge from the primary digester is conveyed by gravity to the secondary digester where it settles and stratifies into gas, scum, supernatant and digested sludge layers. Gas is withdrawn from the top of the digesters and can be used as an energy source (or alternatively wasted), and supernatant is decanted to minimize sludge haulage costs.  Digested sludge and scum can be transferred to a storage facility or directly to hauling trucks.

    Secondary wastewater treatment is accomplished at the Petawawa WPCP by utilizing a Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) activated sludge process, which incorporates Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR). This treatment method incorporates a proprietary system referred to as ICEAS@ (Intermittent Cycle Extended Aeration System).


    Traditional Activated Sludge


    The traditional activated sludge process combines biological and physical treatment methods with the objectives of coagulating and removing the nonsettleable solids and stabilizing the organic matter contained in the raw sewage. In general, organic matter (typically measured as Biochemical Oxygen Demand and referred to as substrate or food), and nutrients in the raw sewage are utilized by microorganisms (e.g. bacteria) to grow and reproduce into a settleable cellular mass. The activated sludge process involves the removal of organic matter using suspended biological growth under aerobic conditions (accomplished in a reactor). The term "activated" refers to the microbial mass formed by the process, which serves to stabilize (or consume) the waste.


    Note: The removal of organic matter from the waste stream is important since organic matter exerts oxygen demand which would deplete the natural oxygen content of a receiving water.


    The biological portion of the process involves the introduction of organic matter (raw sewage) into a reactor which contains microorganisms. This biological slurry is referred to as "mixed liquor". The microbes (e.g.. bacteria) convert the colloidal (i.e. very small) and dissolved organic matter into various gases and cell tissue as described by the following chemical reaction:

    <![CDATA[Primary Wastewater Treatment]]>http://www.petawawa.ca/residents/public-works/wastewater-treatment-and-collection/primary-wastewater-treatment.htmlhttp://www.petawawa.ca/residents/public-works/wastewater-treatment-and-collection/primary-wastewater-treatment.htmlThu, 15 Dec 2016 12:24:46 -0700The objective of primary wastewater treatment is to remove the readily settleable and floatable solids from the raw wastewater stream.

    Primary treatment at the Petawawa WPCP includes chemical addition, screening, grit removal, preaeration, scum removal (skimming) and sedimentation (or primary clarification). The purpose of these processes are outlined below:

    Chemical Addition  - To improve settling performance in sedimentation tanks by increasing floc formation.  Also used to precipitate and remove phosphorous and to control odors.

    Screening - To remove larger solids which could interfere with other components of the wastewater treatment system.

    Grit Removal - To remove discrete granular particles such as sand, cinders, rocks and other substances which could interfere with other components of the wastewater treatment system.

    Pre-aeration - To provide a more uniform distribution of suspended and floating solids to sedimentation facilities and to a lesser extent to provide grease separation, odour control, and increase BOD removal rates.

    Scum Removal - To remove grease and other floatable materials from the wastewater. Typically carried out in sedimentation tanks.

    Sedimentation - To remove flocculent particles and hence remove a portion of the BOD and SS from the wastewater.  This is typically accomplished in sedimentation tanks or clarifiers which allow settleable materials to accumulate at the bottom of the tank and supernatant to overflow into a collection system.  Solids thicken at the bottom and are drawn off for further treatment and disposal.  Supernatant is conveyed to further treatment processes and/or discharged to a receiving water body.

    <![CDATA[Plant Capacity]]>http://www.petawawa.ca/residents/public-works/wastewater-treatment-and-collection/plant-capacity.htmlhttp://www.petawawa.ca/residents/public-works/wastewater-treatment-and-collection/plant-capacity.htmlThu, 15 Dec 2016 12:18:51 -0700The incoming flows to a Water Pollution Control Plant fluctuate throughout any given day. Higher "base" flows occur in the morning, noon and night when domestic water usage is high, while lower base flows occur in between these peak periods. Groundwater infiltration and direct inflows (I/I) into the collection system (i.e. extraneous flows) also contribute to the overall sewage flow received by a treatment plant.


    The average day flow represents the total quantity of sewage received by the Water Pollution Control Plant over the course of a year divided by the number of days in a year. The peak day flow represents the highest volume of sewage received over a given 24 hour day period.


    The Petawawa WPCP has been designed to accommodate an average day flow of 8,730 cubic metres per day (2:1 peaking factor). These flows are based on a 20 year design period which takes into account population growth within the community as well as CFB Petawawa requirements.


    Sewage flows also tend to fluctuate over the course a year (i.e. seasonal variations). For example, flows during the spring thaw are usually much higher than during other time periods of the year due to higher infiltration and direct inflows into the collection system. The magnitude of these flows largely depend on the condition of the collection system, surrounding soil, groundwater table and direct connections ( e.g. roof drains, weeping tiles, etc.).


    A maximum day design flow usually accounts for very high 1/1 flows which typically occur during the spring thaw. The maximum day flow allows for very high I/I rates occurring concurrent with the maximum 24 hour domestic flows. This flow is intended to represent "worst case" conditions and the design of hydraulic devices and controls in a plant is usually based on maximum day flows. However, the treatment process is not normally designed to handle such high flows and must be by-passed.


    Based on the Operating Certificate of Approval (C of A), the Petawawa WPCP is "approved" to treat sewage at an average daily flow of 8,730 cubic metres per day and a peak daily flow of 17,460 cubic metres per day. The plant is not permitted to accept flows in excess of 17,460 cubic metres per day, and any flows larger should be by-passed.

    In Ontario, sewage systems are approved either under the Ontario Water Resources Act (OWRA) or under the Environmental Protection Act (EPA). In general, a sewage system which discharges treated effluent to a surface water requires approval under Section 53 of the OWRA (formerly Section 24).


    The Ministry of the Environment's (MOE's) legislative authority to manage the quality of Ontario's water resources is provided under the Act and includes specifying sewage treatment works effluent requirements which are typically presented in the form of a Certificate of Approval (a legal instrument).


    The purpose of issuing a Certificate of Approval (C of A) for sewage treatment system is to ensure adequate protection of Ontario's surface waters.  Effluent limits are incorporated into the Certificate of Approval to ensure minimal impact to the receiving stream.


    Effluent Quality

    The Petawawa WPCP is operated under C of A #1276-5YFSZH, issued on June 24, 2006. Conditions placed in this C of A address a number of issues associated with the operation and maintenance of the Petawawa WPCP and also specify effluent "requirements" and "objectives" along with sampling requirements. Table 1 presents a summary of the effluent requirements and objectives specified in the C of A.

    The effluent "requirements" represent the concentrations which indicate noncompliance. The effluent "objectives"are intended as target concentrations which should be set as goals to be achieved under most operating conditions.


    Noncompliance with the C of A occurs if:
     

    1. the annual average BOD5 or SS concentrations (i.e. 12 consecutive months of all samples take) exceeds the effluent "requirement".
    2. the daily concentration of total ammonia (i.e. Ammonia-Nitrogen + Ammonium-Nitrogen) for any composite sample taken exceeds the effluent "requirement".
    3. the monthly average Total Phosphorous concentration of all samples taken during a calendar month exceeds the effluent "requirement".
    4. any annual average BOD5, SS or Total P loading (i.e.12 consecutive months of all samples taken) exceeds the effluent "requirement".
    5. any daily concentration of Total Ammonia multiplied by the average daily flow over the seasonal period the sample was taken exceeds the effluent "requirement".
    6. the pH is outside the 6.0 to 9.5 range.

The plant was a primary wastewater treatment plant with an average design flow of 7,700 cubic metres per day. The plant was re-rated to 4,500 cubic metres per day when phosphorous removal facilities were added.


    In 1970, an agreement was made between the Ontario Water Resources Commission (now the MOE) and DND to accept Village of Petawawa sewage at the plant.


    The Village's sanitary sewage system was constructed in 1974-75 as an extension to those properties belonging to  CFB. Components added to the system included a major trunk sewer, two sub area pumping stations and various gravity collector sewers.


    In 1978, at the request of the Village, the MOE (now Ontario Clean Water Agency) agreed to operate the plant and sanitary collection system.


    From 1981 to 1986, various plant modifications and improvements were made to the existing primary treatment plant. This included enhanced gas mixing and collection, upgrades to influent screening, grit removal, a new chlorine contact chamber, upgraded chemical dosing facilities for phosphorous removal, new sludge pumping equipment and improvements to existing buildings. DND contributed 75% to the cost of the project.


    In 1988, the Government of Canada announced its intention to close some military bases across Canada and transfer personnel from London, Ontario to CFB Petawawa.


    The MOE advised the Village of Petawawa in 1988 that sewage flows were exceeding the plant capacity and that unless steps were taken to alleviate the flows, no further development should take place in Petawawa.


    In 1989, the Village of Petawawa retained JL Richards & Associates Limited to assess the plant capacity and, if feasible, to request approval to the MOE to re-rate the plant capacity from 4,500 cubic metres per day to 5,600 cubic metres per day. In January 1989 an application to re-rate the plant was submitted to the MOE.


    In November 1989, the DND proposed that the Village assume of ownership of the plant and that DND would share in the cost of upgrading and expanding the plant.


    In 1990, the Village of Petawawa retained Janota Patrick Engineering Consultants to provide engineering services for upgrading of the Village Waterworks. In 1991, the Village requested Janota Patrick to extend its services to include the upgrading of the Village's sewage works including expansion of the Water Pollution Control Plant. To assist with the transfer of the water pollution control plant from DND to the Village, Janota Patrick carried out a study which reported on the following:
     

    • the anticipated population growth in the Petawawa area.
    • the requirements to upgrade and expand the plant to accommodate the projected growth.
    • the sharing of costs between the Village and DND to fund the proposed plant expansion.


    A plant scale pilot project was undertaken in February 1991 for a period of 30 days to determine the plant's treatment performance at twice the normal flow. This was done by taking half of the plant out of operation.


    In June 1991, approval was given by the MOE to re-rate the existing plant to 5,610 m3/day. This approval was given subject to the Village providing the MOE with a written commitment to proceed with the enlargement of the existing plant, including secondary treatment.


    In August 1991, Council of the Village of Petawawa passed a resolution authorizing Janota Patrick Engineering Consultants along with JL Richards & Associates Limited to proceed with a Class Environmental Assessment Study to expand and upgrade the WPCP. This Class EA was initiated to expand hydraulic and organic loading capacity of the plant through the addition of secondary treatment and to address odour complaints through improvements to sludge handling facilities.


    In October 1995 the EAR for the Class EA was placed on public record for a 30 day review period.


    In 1996, detailed design of the WPCP expansion was undertaken by Janota Patrick & Associates Limited. and JL Richards & Associates Limited. Construction of the facilities was carried out in 1997/98 and the expanded plant was commissioned in 1998.

The Town of Petawawa sets out the policies regarding land division.

    A consent is required, if you want to sell, mortgage, charge or enter into any agreement (of at least 21 years) for a portion of your land. If the two parts are split already, by a road or railway for example, consent is not needed. In addition to the division of land, rights-of-way, easements and any change to your existing property boundaries also require land severance approval.

    If several severances are intended in the same area, a plan of subdivision may be more appropriate.

The Committee is granted authority by the Province of Ontario to grant relief from the provisions of the Town’s Zoning By-law. The application heard by the Committee of Adjustment is a Minor Variance Application.


    A minor variance can be described as a special privilege used to reduce the inflexibility of the zoning by-law and as such requires public notification and a hearing.


    Applications can be submitted to the Secretary Treasure of the Committee of Adjustment at the Town Hall.

Whether you want to relive those  childhood memories, continue your memory from your camping trip last weekend or want to create those first time memories for you and your family, Petawawa is going to be the place you want to visit.


    Petawawa is the gateway into the east gate of world renowned Algonquin Provincial Park. You can drive in for the weekend or go canoe camping for a week in the interior. Experience nature and wildlife at its best, make sure to bring a camera to catch those forever moments.


    There is always an opportunity to be a little more wild. There are several opportunities to experience the back country. Get your paddle in your hand and head deep into Algonquin Park or paddle to the other side of the Ottawa River and experience the Dumoine River, from tame flatwater trips to full on whitewater excursions. There are  several outfitters and guides in the area to help you set up a shuttle or guide a fully planned trip for you and your family or a bunch of friends on a weekend away.


    For those of you who want to try something new and a little different, sections of Algonquin Park are open year Round. Experience camping through a new fresh pair of eyes. The park takes on a whole new beauty and the great part is no mosquitoes and the bears are hibernating so there are a few perks to get you wanting to try camping when there’s a little snow on the ground.


    SAFETY – No matter how long or short your trip is always tell someone where you are going and the details. Make sure to pack enough food and water. And don’t forget whatever you bring in make sure to bring it back out – Leave No Trace!

Whatever your travel plans - perhaps just a day of boating, or cruising for a week or two - the Ottawa's scenic waters are exactly what you've been looking for in a uniquely different boating adventure. Anywhere along the way you can nose into shore, pitch a tent and build a fire on shore or dock at a marina and head to a hotel or even spend your nights at anchor.


    Join us for a tour of the waterway as it winds its way from Notre-Dame-Du-Nord, at the head of Lake Temiskaming and then down the Ottawa River for almost 500 kilometres, to Arnprior, just outside of Ottawa.

    Emergency Preparedness is everyone’s responsibility. As a resident of the Town of Petawawa you can prepare for emergencies by ensuring your home has an emergency kit. 


    The following are suggestions on items that should be found within your emergency kit:
     

    • Flashlight and spare batteries  
    • Radio or crank radio (so you can listen to news bulletins)
    • First-aid kit
    • Candles, matches/lighter
    • Extra car keys and cash (including coins/cards for telephone)
    • Important papers (identification for everyone, insurance papers)
    • You should have at least a three-day supply of food and water on hand.
    • Choose ready-to-eat foods that don’t need refrigeration.
    • At least four litres of water per person per day should be allocated – two for drinking and two for food preparation, hygiene and dishwashing.
    • It is also a good idea to keep a supply of water purification tablets on hand.
    • Clothing and footwear (one change of clothes per person)
    • Blankets or sleeping bags (one blanket or sleeping bag per person)
    • Toilet paper and other personal supplies such as shampoo, hairbrush, toothbrush and toothpaste, soap and a towel and face cloth (one for each person)
    • Medication
    • Backpack/duffel bag (or something else to carry the emergency kit in, in case you have to evacuate)
    • Whistle
    • Playing cards or small games   


    When preparing a kit always remember individuals who may have special needs or requirements during an emergency situation. Emergency Management Ontario provides additional information on planning for Seniors, People With Disabilities, Children and Pets.

    <![CDATA[History]]>http://www.petawawa.ca/townhall/history/http://www.petawawa.ca/townhall/history/Thu, 26 Nov 2015 1:39:17 -0700Petawawa photo of intersectionThe Petawawa of yesteryear like the Petawawa of today, was founded on the strength of its natural resources, its strategic military role and the vibrancy and energy of its residents.  The Township of Petawawa was incorporated in 1865, and the Village of Petawawa was incorporated in 1961.


    On July 1, 1997, the Village and the Township amalgamated to become the Town of Petawawa with a population today of over 15,000, the largest municipality in Renfrew County.The earliest settlement recorded in Petawawa was by the group of Algonkin Indians known as "people of the great river".


    Roughly translated from the Algonkin language, Petawawa means "where one hears the noise of the water". During those early times the location was ideal for access throughout the region on the Ottawa and Petawawa Rivers for both the gathering for social assemblies and for the transportation of trade goods.
     

    Early European visitors included Samuel de Champlain who visited in 1613 seeking a shorter trade route to China. Later French fur traders used the trails along the Petawawa River as part of their trade route. Some of these trails still exist on CFB Petawawa today.
     

    Photo of log jam at Petawawa PointThe Hudson Bay Company designated the area as a "strategic location" and established Fort William in 1823 on the Quebec side of the Ottawa River opposite CFB Petawawa. Three years later in 1826, the Ottawa River was viewed as an alternate shipping route to the Great Lakes in case the United States was successful in closing the upper St. Lawrence River. The first survey for Petawawa Township was in 1857 united with Rolph, Buchanan, Wylie and McKay and Alice Townships in 1858 before finally separating on its own in 1865.
     

    The first European settlers came from Scotland and Ireland followed some years later around 1885 by German homesteaders. Settlers found the land to be uncooperative for farming but the timber was valuable and created jobs and economic opportunities from those times to these. In 1905, the Canadian military acquired land in the area which has now been developed into Canadian Forces Base Petawawa, currently one of Canada`s largest military bases. The base is now an integral part of the town.
     

    Photo of Giesebrecht's StoreEugene Giesebrecht, is known as one of Petawawa's pioneer entrepreneurs. In 1910 he opened a store and restaurant in the fledgling village of Petawawa. His business grew into the first general store and post office, where he manufactured ice cream, soft drinks and cement blocks. In 1934, he became one of the first Pepsi Cola franchisees in Canada.


    From our roots in nature, Petawawa has grown into a thriving, self-sufficient and secure town. As much as ever we are now "history in the making"… and we invite you to become a part of our story!

    We are able to accomplish our mission through the dedication of thirty six fire department members committed to providing excellent service to our community and to making a difference in the lives of the people we serve. We take pride in our service delivery and we use our training and skills to assist our residents, business partners and visitors on an average 160 calls for service per year. Our services have broadened over the years and our ability to respond to a variety of incidents speaks volumes of our desire to serve. We continue to evaluate the needs of the community and seek solutions to improved service.


    Our Fire Prevention Branch seeks to prevent fires through an aggressive fire prevention program that minimizes fire risk through public education and enforcement. As we continue to grow as a community, the role of prevention becomes increasingly important to ensure a safe environment for the businesses and citizens of this community. You also can do your part by planning an escape route from your home, establishing a meeting place for your family once you are safely out and ensure that your home has at least one smoke alarm on every level of the home and outside all sleeping areas. “SMOKE ALARMS SAVE LIVES”


    The valued partnerships that we have established over the years with the Central Ambulance Communication Centre, Renfrew County Paramedic Service and the Ontario Provincial Police combined with the commitment and dedication to excellence in training ensure that our response to assist the residents of Petawawa exceeds expectations.


    The Town of Petawawa Fire Department is well positioned to accept new challenges that may arise and will face them with the steadfast determination that has become the department’s trademark.


    Steve Knott,
    Fire Chief
