April 1st to October 31st we are in our Provincial Legislative Burn Season, day time burning is prohibited. Burning is permitted with a valid burn permit two (2) hours prior to sunset until two (2) hours after sunrise.

Should the Province place the Township in a restricted fire zone, all burning is prohibited until such time as the Province removes the Restricted Warning.

The Township is looking for the community’s help to continuously update the Oh Canada video being played at the opening of Council meetings. If you have pictures taken in the Township and would like to share with us to add to the beauty of the video please send them to The video can also be viewed on our website under the Council Tab.

Thank you to all who have already submitted pictures and we look forward to new submissions, which will be circulated throughout the year.

Greater Madawaska Township, located in the Ottawa Valley, is the most picturesque and diverse tourist destination area in Eastern Ontario, offering opportunities for four seasons of outdoor adventure: alpine skiing to snowmobiling, flat water canoeing to fishing, championship golf to rock climbing, from mountain biking to ATVing. The options limited only by your energy and sense of adventure.

If relaxing is your preference, the sheer beauty of our natural landscapes is a joy to experience. Take a leisurely drive on the myriad of country roads, curl up with a book by the river, enjoy a picnic in one of our waterside parks, listen for the call of the loon, enjoy starry nights and reconnect with Mother Nature! Celebrate the end of an exciting day in one of our local restaurants or pubs, enjoying fine cuisine to simple home cooked food.

Be Careful! Our wealth of beauty, combined with an abundance of warmth and hospitality, inherent to the "Valley", just may convince you to make Greater Madawaska your country home.

Welcome! Enjoy! Take part in our adventure!
