So much more to explore!
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!
Municipal Election 2014 - Vote by Mail
Posted on: September 12, 2014
The Champlain Community Care Access Centre has received confirmation from ParaMed Home Health that effective today Tuesday, September 2 2014 members of Local 492 in Renfrew County are now on strike. Only ParaMed clients receiving services in the Renfrew County area will be affected – the labour dispute will not impact other clients residing in other parts of the Champlain region.
The Champlain CCAC is not involved in the labour negotiation process – at this time it is not known how long the strike will last.
The following information is intended to help you answer any queries from the public and who to direct them to for additional information.
What is the Champlain CCAC doing to ensure clients continue to receive care?
Our clients remain our primary concern. The Champlain CCAC has established a strike response team to lead contingency planning and ensure continuity of care for clients wherever possible. This includes assessing existing clients and prioritizing them for service based on their needs, level of risk, as well as seeking alternative sources for service.
Effective today all high need clients who have been receiving service from ParaMed have been transferred to other service providers.
How is the Champlain CCAC communicating with clients about the strike?
All high need clients have been contacted by telephone by their Care Coordinator to notify them of the change in service provider and address any issues. In addition, all other ParaMed clients received an automated voice message on August 29, 2014, informing them of a potential disruption in service and change in service provider.
Who can clients speak to if they have questions about their care?
Clients who have questions about their care should call their Care Coordinator at 1-800-538-0520.
Who can clients speak to if they have concerns or complaints about the strike?
Clients who have concerns or complaints about the ParaMed strike can contact the Champlain CCAC Client Relations team at 613-745-8124 x5864.
