The Township of Greater Madawaska


The 2001 amalgamation of the Townships of Bagot, Blythfield, Brougham, Matawatchan and Griffith made Greater Madawaska the largest township within Renfrew County, with approximately 1200 km of rolling terrain. A very significant Crown-owned land segment affords a multitude of excellent lakes and waterways for fishing and hunting, as well as hundreds of kilometres of land for year-round recreational enjoyment. Whether visiting or planning to stay on permanently, come and enjoy the beauty and tranquility our township offers.
