North American Van Lines: The Petawawa Moving Company that makes for a Multipurpose Solution for all of your Moving Needs

Situated across the eastern region of greater Southern Ontario, the town of Petawawa comprises a significant portion of the Ottawa Valley by serving as one of the most populous regional centres within its own county. Roughly 16,000 Ontarians call the town of Petawawa their home. The town’s name, Petawawa, derives from an Algonquin word which roughly translates to “where one hears a noise like this.” Early settlers in the area that is now Petawawa enjoyed the heavily forested area’s potential for lumber and logging, while much of the 20th century in Petawawa was dominated by Canadian military establishment and operation. The Canadian Forces Base Petawawa remains in operation following this period of heavy, early military influence.

Notably, a higher than average percentage of Petawawa’s work force derives from Canadian Government positions, which comprises the largest single employer across the town. Much of Petawawa’s industry and culture is influenced by this dichotomy among citizens, and a range of groups including the Canadian Forces serve at a garrison within the town. Additionally, the Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (Atomic Energy of Canada Limited) contributes a major degree of employment to the town. It’s important to note that modern Petawawa is also home to a number of unique communities within its borders that comprise the collective township. Petawawa Point, Black Bay, Riverview, and more all serve as distinct areas within Petawawa that could reasonably be regarded as their own independent communities.
