The Township of Bonnechere Valley boasts a high quality of life and is rich in natural and tourism assets. This part of the Ottawa Valley benefits from immediate access to several freshwater lakes, river and caves; as well as having a large supply of forests and farmland, making it an ideal location for many types of businesses. Bonnechere Valley is centrally located within Renfrew County and just a 90-minute drive from the City of Ottawa. It is also located along Highway 60, an area that attracts motorcycle enthusiasts, cottagers, and outdoor aficionados.
The population has grown over the past 5 years and the real estate sector appears to currently be booming, particularly as a result of a residential influx caused by the ongoing pandemic, which has incited many urban citizens to seek larger homes, open spaces, and access to outdoor recreation.
