Bringing the Community Together
Petawawa is a booming municipality in the Ottawa Valley. The largest by population, Petawawa will continue to grow as Garrison Petawawa (formerly known as CFB Petawawa) expands as a major military operation in Canada. With the growth of residents, commercial development is also increasing to meet the needs of this vibrant, young and secure population.
The Petawawa Town Centre is a development that truly reflects the vibrancy of the community. Petawawa is an active region where residents participate in many outdoor opportunities. Whether it’s world-class paddling, protected natural environment areas or the commitment to a pedestrian and cycle-friendly community, this is a community that provides an incredible opportunity to build business.
The military influence of this community expands beyond the premises of the base and into the community. Petawawa provides tremendous supports for integrating military families, and many soldiers retire here, or return to Petawawa to retire if they have been posted elsewhere in the country. The population of Garrison Petawawa is expected to grow due to the establishment of the Chinoook Helicopter Squadron.
