The Town of Arnprior is ideal for vacationers and for people interested in small town life. It is a great place to raise a family or to live a leisurely life of retirement. We have the best of both worlds, small town neighbors and close proximity to the city life offered in the region of Ottawa-Carleton. Arnprior is a progressive community with the right combination of residential, commercial and industrial components. This is probably why so many top 500 companies, including General Electric, Arnprior Aerospace Inc. and Pfizer have chosen to locate in the Town of Arnprior. With the expansion of the TransCanada Highway 17 to four lanes to Arnprior, the possibilities are unlimited. Our beautiful community has several historical landmarks together with the many required modern conveniences, including shopping, recreation, restaurants, watersport facilities, and beaches, just to name a few.

Come to Arnprior to live, visit or set up a business – you will not find a more receptive community!

<![CDATA[Township of Madawaska Valley]]>http://www.ottawavalleyeconomicdevelopment.com/about-us/municipalities/township-of-madawaska-valley/http://www.ottawavalleyeconomicdevelopment.com/about-us/municipalities/township-of-madawaska-valley/Tue, 23 Jul 2013 1:31:01 -0400Township of Madawaska ValleyOriginally settled over a 100 years ago by loggers and farmers, the Township of Madawaska Valley offers visitors and new settlers alike, picturesque forests, plentiful wildlife and over 60 kilometers of navigable waterways. Located only two hours from Ottawa, three from Toronto and in close proximity to world famous Algonquin Provincial Park, the township provides an abundance of recreational, eco-tourism and business opportunities for everyone.

"The Heart of the Madawaska Valley" can be found in its three vibrant communities of Barry's Bay, Combermere and Wilno. Each offers a unique cultural experience and a welcoming environment that makes both tourism and retirement living an integral part of our economy.

From its early roots as a lumbering town, the Village of Barry's Bay has been the main service centre for the surrounding area. A healthy commercial core incorporates a wide range of retail and professional services including grocery and clothing stores, banks, restaurants, hardware/building centres, legal, dental and family medical practices. Also available are municipal water & sewer infrastructure, two elementary schools, the Madawaska Valley District High School and the Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Academy. St. Francis Memorial Hospital and ambulatory services are located just outside the village.

Combermere has grown from a summer vacation destination to a year-round tourism and retirement living community. Situated on the Madawaska River, both residents and visitors enjoy the fishing, swimming, boating, whitewater rafting, canoeing and bird-watching opportunities of this extensive waterway leading to Conroy's Marsh. Don't forget to visit the Saturday morning Farmer's Market during the summer or enjoy the ice fishing, snowmobile trails, and cross-country skiing throughout the winter.

First settled in the early 1800's by Kashubian Poles, the Hamlet of Wilno is proud to be Canada's oldest Polish Settlement. Local descendents have nurtured and cultivated the culture, arts and crafts of their ancestors, transforming Wilno into a truly unique and colourful experience. Originally built when the railway went through in 1894, the Wilno Tavern offers cold beer, traditional Polish dishes and entertainment by a variety of fine local musicians. Walking tours of Wilno include a breathtaking view of the surrounding hills, forests and lakes from The Shrine Hill lookout.

The Township of Madawaska Valley is serviced by the O.P.P. and has a volunteer fire department with fire halls in Barry's Bay and Combermere. Community recreational facilities include an arena, 3 outdoor rinks, ball fields, tennis courts, playgrounds, beaches and parks.

David Shulist Mayor (613) 756-2747 (613) 756-0553

David Shulist (Mayor) - Township of Madawaska ValleyMayor David Shulist is one of the newcomers to Renfrew County Council after winning the 2010 Municipal Election. It was David’s first attempt at elected office. Davis is perhaps best known locally and on a broader stage for his work with the Kashubian Heritage Society, promoting local Polish Kashub culture and forging ties between Wilno and the Madawaska Valley and officials and cultural activists in the Poland, particularly in the Kaszëbë province. Prior to the 2010 Election, most of his energies were devoted to the development of the Heritage Park in Wilno and the restoration of the Opeongo Heritage Trail, which was largely responsible for bringing the first settlers to the Madawaska Valley area. Once those projects were completed, David ran for the Office of Mayor and won. David was also the official County of Renfrew Olympic Torch Bearer during the historic 2010 National Olympic Torch Run. David ran on a platform of road maintenance; encouraging local health-care initiatives, from doctor recruitment, protecting nurses and making sure that the hospital and local long-term-care facilities stay strong and supported. David serves on the County Social Services and Operations Committee.

The historic Ottawa River flows through the Ottawa Valley, bordering Renfrew County to the north, which also links us to neighbouring Quebec. Ottawa, Canada's capital city, is at the eastern tip. In the northwest, we span into Algonquin Provincial Park, which is Ontario's largest.

Our township was incorporated on July 1st 2000, as the result of the amalgamation of the former Township of Hagarty & Richards and the former Village of Killaloe.
This area was first settled in the middle of the 19th century by Irish immigrants.  As time went on, Irish, German, Kashub, Polish and Wendish settlers arrived by way of the Opeongo colonization road.  That road is now known locally as the "Opeongo Line".
 
Logging was responsible for the initial economic development of the area, with timber being harvested in the interior and transported down streams like the Bonnechere River and Brennan's Creek in Killaloe to the Ottawa River.

At present, logging and tourism are our primary industries.  Timber is harvested on private and crown land, and much of it is processed in local mills.  Our lakes and forests provide a peaceful retreat for visitors who enjoy swimming and boating, camping, fishing, hiking, and hunting.  In winter, snowmobiling and ice fishing are popular activities.  Bonnechere Provincial Park, located in our township, and Algonquin Provincial Park, located 45 minutes away, attract thousands of visitors each year.

We are also home to a thriving community of artists, musicians, and performers, who display their talents at local galleries and venues.  The Madawaska Valley Studio Tour showcases some of the best artists in Killaloe-Hagarty-Richards and neighbouring townships.

Considered a rural municipality, it has areas of urban population adjacent to Renfrew and along the Ottawa River. Horton Township has approximately 40 hectares (100 acres) of vacant land pre-zoned Commercial and Commercial Reserve. These lands, situated on Provincial Highway 60 and Gillan Road, are awaiting your development. Both areas are adjacent to the Town of Renfrew and are on major transportation routes. Horton has untapped recreational potential with 16 km (10 miles) of Ottawa River waterfront and breathtaking high ridge views overlooking the River and the Province of Quebec. With the anticipated completion of the four lanes to Highway 17, Horton will be within 45 minutes of Silicon Valley North.

The Madawaska River and several undeveloped pristine lakes and rivers flow through the heart of our Municipality. We are also home to several thriving Canoe/Kayak and Wilderness Adventure Industries. Rock Hounds are never disappointed with their digs from the several rock/quarry mines established throughout our area. Development properties are accessed by a well maintained secondary highway network. The positive effects of this access is realized by the several prosperous, second generation logging companies within our Township's geographic boundaries.
