Economic Development

The Township of Laurentian Valley has experienced steady growth over the past years. The increase in residential development, growth of the commercial power centre located southeast of the City of Pembroke, the reopening of Pembroke MDF (medium density fibreboard plant in LV) and the reinvestment and growth in commercial development in the area along County Road 51 stretching westward from the boundary with the City of Pembroke, towards the Town of Petawawa and along Highway 148, have all helped to strengthen our dynamic community. 

Economic development in the Township of Laurentian Valley also benefits from the surrounding communities as opportunities are presented for complementary businesses and services in this already strong, healthy and vibrant municipality.

The proximity of Garrison Petawawa in the adjacent Town of Petawawa, with its growth in military and civilian personnel is one of the factors that enhance the potential for the Township of Laurentian Valley to attract new economic development and/or retain and grow existing business and industry. The Township of Laurentian Valley is also situated in close commuting distance to the Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) facilities in Chalk River and Deep River (formerly known as AECL).  These facilities together with the Algonquin College Pembroke Waterfront Campus in the adjacent City of Pembroke, make the Township an attractive location for firms supporting advanced manufacturing and the nuclear industry to locate, as well as niche manufacturing and business supporting the creative economy.  Easy access through the Township to outside markets is available through the Highway 17 and Highway 41 corridors.  Laurentian Valley also is home to many persons employed at CNL and Garrison Petawawa due to its close proximity, providing further opportunities for residential growth.
