This year’s Cabin Fever promises to be a treat for the senses and provide us with many opportunities to play in our winter wonderland.   Festivities begin on January 18 with the fundraising Comedy Night and Dance in support of the Greater Petawawa Minor Hockey Association.  Over the course of the week there are many additional activities to enjoy, family skating and snowshoeing, breakfasts, chili luncheons, bingos, bridge and bid euchre tournaments. These activities lead to the annual Lion’s Trivia Night event on Friday, January 24.  Is your team ready to accept the challenge?  On Saturday, January 25, a new KI sponsored Bumper Car & Soccer on Ice event will take place and of course you can always put in a team for the Snow pitch ball Tournament.  That evening, the Petawawa Rotary Club will host a new fundraising event called the “Fusion of Senses.”  Sponsored by Valley Eats, this event will offer participants the opportunity to savour, sample and experience a diverse selection of local fares and craft beverages and enjoy a live indie folk blues artist performance.

This year’s Cabin Fever promises to be a treat for the senses and provide us with many opportunities to play in our winter wonderland.   Festivities begin on January 18 with the fundraising Comedy Night and Dance in support of the Greater Petawawa Minor Hockey Association.  Over the course of the week there are many additional activities to enjoy, family skating and snowshoeing, breakfasts, chili luncheons, bingos, bridge and bid euchre tournaments. These activities lead to the annual Lion’s Trivia Night event on Friday, January 24.  Is your team ready to accept the challenge?  On Saturday, January 25, a new KI sponsored Bumper Car & Soccer on Ice event will take place and of course you can always put in a team for the Snow pitch ball Tournament.  That evening, the Petawawa Rotary Club will host a new fundraising event called the “Fusion of Senses.”  Sponsored by Valley Eats, this event will offer participants the opportunity to savour, sample and experience a diverse selection of local fares and craft beverages and enjoy a live indie folk blues artist performance. 


We invite you back for Cabin Fever Part 2 - an extension necessitated by uncooperative weather conditions.  The popular snow drag races have been rescheduled to Saturday, February 29 at the Pembroke and Area Airport.  Enter the races or come out to watch!  Two events have been moved to Sunday, March 1.  Brave supporters of the OSPCA are invited to the “Freeze Your Paws Off” and take part in a traditional Polar Bear plunge all in support of our furry friends.  Then a new event is taking place at the Roanoke Golf Course, bearing the title “Winter Wonderland,” where participants can skate on the pond, enjoy a guided snowshoe outing, play outdoor games and roast marshmallows over an open fire.


Come out to enjoy the activities, revive your senses and experience our nature.

Public Meeting on Municipal Accommodation Tax


Petawawa Town Council received a presentation on September 16, 2019 from the Ottawa Valley Tourism Association (OVTA) on a widely debated topic known as the Municipal Accommodation Tax (MAT).  The OVTA presented material that gave a background of the concept and the legislative changes that have come into effect that are part of the MAT implementation process.  The OVTA encouraged Council to undertake a community review of the concept.  Council directed staff to undertake these consultations and report those findings in the first quarter of 2020. 

As part of these consultations, there was an invitation led meeting with the Petawawa Accommodators followed by a presentation to the Petawawa Business Advisory Group.  Both sessions were well attended and received.  To share further information and capture the public comment on this subject, a public meeting will take place in the hall of the Civic Centre on Tuesday, January 28th from 6 - 8 pm.   We thank everyone for their respectful participation in this process.

If you have any questions about the public session, please contact Community Services at 613-687-5678 or email recreation@petawawa.ca

 


The Province of Ontario issued the Transient Accommodation Regulation 435/17, which came into force December 1, 2017.  This regulation provided the framework and necessary provisions for municipalities across Ontario to implement a Municipal Accommodation Tax (MAT). Under the provincial legislation, the MAT is a revenue sharing program that is to be solely disbursed and expensed to further the marketing and development of tourism products.
 

This legislated MAT formalizes what was once charged by many urban accommodators as a Destination Marketing Fee (DMF).  Under that program, accommodators voluntarily collected, an agreed upon fee, and by individual contract, remitted those fees to a designated hotel association, who then provided the funding to a not for profit Destination Marketing Organization tasked with promoting the region and enhancing tourism and leisure recreational opportunities. 
 

The implementation of a MAT would add a fee to all short term roofed accommodation rates charged within the designated geographic boundaries of a municipality. The accommodators would remit those fees to the municipality who would then disburse the fees to an eligible tourism entity to enhance and support existing tourism marketing and product development initiatives. 
 

Petawawa Town Council has received a presentation from the Ottawa Valley Tourist Association on this subject and is seeking public consult on the matter.  To share information and gather your input there will be a public meeting on Tuesday, January 28th at the Civic Centre hall, located at 16 Civic Centre from 6 pm – 8 pm.
