Welcome to Petawawa

The Town of Petawawa, Ontario, Canada is quietly nestled on the western shores of the Ottawa River and bisected by the Petawawa River. Petawawa is located just 160 km. west of Ottawa. This scenic community is a must-see for boaters, anglers, sports enthusiasts, and anyone who enjoys the outdoors – from golden beaches to fresh-fallen snow. Petawawa is home to Canadian Forces Base Petawawa.

Petawawa takes pride in being a close-knit community with strong support and commitment from area businesses and organizations. Annual events, such as Sno Frolic in January and Civic Centre Days held each June, are popular attractions for people of all ages.
