Economic Profile

The Town of Petawawa is the largest community in Renfrew County with a population of 18,160. The Town enjoys a unique partnership with Garrison Petawawa to provide a unique balance of family-oriented and sports-enthusiast dream recreational facilities and a natural playground set along the Petawawa and Ottawa Rivers. Here you will find quality housing at affordable prices and an abundance of products, services, and skilled labor that you would expect only from a much larger community.

As a commercial developer, you will find a wide selection of serviced and non-serviced residential, commercial, and industrial land available for building homes and establishing business ventures.  Our public utilities are state of the art and well maintained. Clean water, excellent roads, reliable power, and motivated/educated employees are the norm in Petawawa.

Only five minutes from the centre of town is a modern, fully equipped airport. With a paved 5,000 foot runway, it is used by both private recreational aircraft as well as corporate jets 24 hours a day, all year round.

Petawawa boasts a quality of life that is second to none, with state-of-the-art recreational facilities, modern infrastructure, and growing commercial and industrial sectors. The Town is rich in culture and heritage, abounds with scenic nature, and is steeped with a deep sense of community pride. Come and visit us and see just how Dynamic by Nature we are.
