Due to municipal buildings being closed to the public during the COVID-19 pandemic the public will only be able to attend Committee and Council meetings virtually through the Township of Bonnechere Valley's YouTube channel.  Agendas will continue to be available on our website, or via email, fax or regular mail upon request.  Delegation requests will have to be submitted in writing prior to the meeting and will be read by the CAO for Council's consideration.  We thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to deliver services in these challenging times.  If you have questions please contact the municipal office by phone or email.  Stay Bonnechere Valley Strong.  We are in this together!

Council meets twice a month on the first and third Tuesdays.  We start with a committee meeting at 1:30 pm and this is where most of our discussions take place.  All meetings are open and the public is encouraged to attend.  This section is designed to let you know some of the topics that we are or will be discussing. Even if you cannot attend a meeting we would love to hear your thoughts.  Letters and emails are circulated to all council members and read. We can do a better job with your help!

 If you have an issue that you would like to speak to Council about, all you need to do is become a Delegate. Please complete the Delegation Request Form and return to the CAO.

The former Townships of Grattan, Sebastopol, South Algona and the Village of Eganville amalgamated on January 1, 2001 to create the Township of Bonnechere Valley.  According to the 2011 Census, the Township has a population of 3,763 people.

Bonnechere Valley is a beautiful little municipality, part of Renfrew County and located in eastern Ontario. It is central from the Nation’s Capital and the Historic Algonquin Park. The main village of Eganville is located at the junction of Highways 41 & 60, a major transportation route for trucks and vehicles traveling to and through those destinations. The municipality is known for its lake and rivers especially the Bonnechere River which flows directly through the village.

There is a wide range of land uses in the Township including residential and commercial development on piped municipal water and sewer systems, rural residential on wells & septic systems, farming and agriculture. In the municipality, we have significant mineral aggregate resources (gravel pits & quarries) and forestry.

The Township encourages development and is controlled through the Official Plan, Comprehensive Zoning By-law and various other municipal by-laws. There are many parks throughout the township that offer a place for young and old to relax and feast on the heavenly surroundings that abound. The Rotary Beach in Eganville as well as the lovely beach on Lake Clear and the numerous beaches on GoldenLake can be favorite spots for tourists. Several 'Tourist Resorts' throughout the Valley can be accessed by the public.

The area is full of history. For example, the Historic Stone Fence off the Opeongo Line makes for an interesting facet of the Township of Bonnechere Valley.

OUR VISION: To make our community a safe, affordable, efficient place where people choose to live, work, visit, and participate in a culture that fosters communication, rural lifestyle, personal growth and healthy commerce.

  • Advance Religion
  • Advance Education
  • Benefit the Community

The following pre-requisites are mandatory to be considered eligible for a lottery licence.

Typically, these may include Bingos, Raffles, Break Open Tickets and social gaming events held by charitable or religious organizations.

Prepare your emergency survival kit today for a safer tomorrow.”

Knowing the risks and developing practical plans can help reduce fear and aid in recovery from an emergency situation.  Ensuring business continuity, protecting information and updating emergency plans are all crucial in assuring community preparedness.

The Township of Bonnechere Valley has developed a plan to outline the probable course of action to be followed in the first few critical hours of an emergency. It also provides guidance for municipal officers and department heads that will be expected to make plans for and fulfill specific responsibilities in an emergency.

In an increasingly complex and technological society, emergencies of a man-made nature are on the increase and add to the natural hazards that man has always faced. Since initial response to such emergencies is usually from municipal resources, it is critical that the Township of Bonnechere Valley have a plan prepared for the coordination of essential services to meet the stress of an emergency in the most efficient way, especially at the onset when the health and safety of the population is at the greatest risk.

For this plan to be effective, it is essential that all concerned be made aware of and familiar with their assigned emergency functions. This will be accomplished by annual reviews of responsibilities, procedures and exercises to test the effectiveness of the emergency plan.

Under authority of the Emergency Management Act, and by enactment of Bonnechere Valley Township By-Law # 2004-45 this plan will govern the provision of necessary services during an emergency and the manner in which employees of the municipality and other persons will respond in an emergency.

EGANVILLE DRINKING WATER SYSTEM:

Municipal Drinking Water Licence & Works Permit:

The Township of Bonnechere Valley has a Municipal Drinking Water Licence and Drinking Water Works Permit for the Eganville Drinking Water System.

Raw Water Supply: The source water for the Eganville Drinking Water System is the Bonnechere River, which originates in Algonquin Park and flows to the Ottawa River.

Treatment Process: The raw water from the Bonnechere River is processed using a conventional type treatment plant with chemical coagulation, flocculation, clarification and filtration. Disinfection is achieved by the introduction of sodium hypochlorite which maintains free chlorine residual in the treated water.

Distribution System: Treated water is pumped into the distribution system which consists of approximately 13 km of underground piping and the Bruce Street standpipe for pressure equalization and supply when the pumps are cycled off.

Water Quality Monitoring: An extensive monitoring program is in place for both the treatment process and distribution system. All current Provincial requirements are being met for process monitoring and water quality.

Quality Management System: The Township of Bonnechere Valley maintains a Quality Management System (QMS) for the Eganville Drinking Water System in conformance with "Ontario's Drinking Water Quality Management Standard" (DWQMS).

Compliance Reporting: An Eganville Drinking Water System Summary Report is prepared and submitted to the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) on an annual basis.

ASSET MANAGEMENT & CAPITAL PROJECTS:

The Township of Bonnechere Valley has developed an Asset Management Plan for the Water and Sewage Infrastructure in the Village of Eganville.  This Plan is structured as a living document which allows for ongoing updates and inclusion of new information.

Asset Management Reports can be found on our website under the tab "Council", select the tab "Strategic Planning - Asset Management" 

Capital Projects: The Bruce Street standpipe was refurbished in 2017 with new exterior paint and safety upgrades to the roof access structures.  A new internal water mixing system will be installed in 2018 to assist in maintaining water quality.

FINANCIAL PLAN & WATER/SEWAGE RATES

A six-year Financial Plan has been developed for the Eganville Water and Sewage Systems in accordance with the requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). The Financial Plan is considered a “living document” and is reviewed and updated annually as part of the Township’s budgeting process.

Eganville Water and Sewage Financial Plan (2016-2022)

Water and Sewage System usage rates are established annually by by-law to produce sufficient revenue to meet the estimated budget required for operation, maintenance and renewal of the water and sewage systems.

Water and Sewage System Rates and Charges (By-Law 2019-006)

EGANVILLE SEWAGE SYSTEM:

Municipal Sewage Works Certificate of Approval:  The Township of Bonnechere Valley has a Municipal Sewage Works Certificate of Approval for the Eganville Sewage Treatment Plant, Sewage Pumping Stations and Collection System.

Collection System: The gravity sewage collection system consists of approximately 11 km of underground piping and four sewage pumping stations.

Treatment Process: The collected sewage is processed in an extended aeration treatment system with the effluent being chlorinated and then de-chlorinated before it is discharged into the Bonnechere River. The aerated digested sludge is dewatered utilizing Geotube technology and the resultant biosolids are transported to landfill to be used as a soil amendment for final cover.

Sewage Quality Monitoring: An extensive monitoring program is in place for the sewage treatment process, effluent discharge and sludge dewatering. All current Provincial and Federal requirements are being met for process monitoring, sewage effluent discharge and biosolids quality.

Compliance Reporting: A Performance Report is prepared and submitted to the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) on an annual basis.

Our new Authors Circle Memberships are a great way for your to pre-plan your festival experience and help support the festival by making a donation in advance.  There are a variety of membership levels to choose from, good for an individual, a couple or friends.  They include seasons passes, dinners with the author, and signed books.

The BAF organizers are making some adjustments to help strengthen the Festival.  For the first time, we will provide authors with honourariums to help with their travel costs.  Authors in Canada make an average of $9,380 a year.  To ask an Author to take time away from their family, job and to also pay their own way is more then we're willing to ask when we are raising money from their work.  That means our costs are going to be a lttle higher, however, to offset this, and hopefully raise even more for the library, we are raising our prices slightly and offering new sponsorship packages for local businesses and membership packages for you, our biggest fans!

The ticket price is being increased for the first time in the 17 years this festival has take place!  Single tickets will be $20, at the door.  We will have a measure to help those book lovers who cannot afford the increase.

In past years BAF has been a partnership with the Training and Learning Centre.  They have chosen to focus their fundraising efforts in a different direction, and we wish them the very best!  This means all of the money raised will go to the Bonnechere Union Public Library.  We are a small group of organizers, with a larger group of loyal volunteers and bakers.  Thank you for considering supporting this Festival that has put the Eganville area on the cultural and literary map in Canada.  We would not have such a successful Festival without you, our amazing audience.

In October 2012 the 1st ever municipally owned Recreational Geology Trail opened.  It is a Geologically rich trail in the heart of the Bonnechere Valley, leading to a limestone quarry and a hand-dug trench!

The Township of Bonnechere Valley in partnership with the Bonnechere Museum are happy to offer this local trail for recreational and educational use.  Admire Eganville’s unique natural beauty as you walk through a hillside forest and past rock walls where geological treasures are abundant.

On the Geology and Fossil Trail you will come to the Grattan Quarry.  This quarry was active in the 1800s to the early 1900s.  The limestone was shipped to various places but some was used to build Eganville’s first town hall and the footings of the original St. James Church.  It was first developed by James Bonfield in the 1800s and was owned by Shane Lime and Charcoal Company through the 1900s.

What you will see on this trail:

  • Surface rock
  • Limestone quarry
  • Hand-dug trench
  • Outliers of limestone
  • Ordovician fossils

It’s outdoor fun for the entire family! 

Check out the Museum Event Calendar for scheduled Geo-Walks and Fossil Hunts!

Our area is like a brilliant picture postcard and there's no shortage of things to do and places to stay along the way. We have camping, hiking, canoeing, boating, cottages, beaches, and resorts galore!

From its source in Algonquin Park, the Bonnechere River flows right through the Village of Eganville and along the northern edge of the township. It's a favorite place for canoeing and fishing. Swimming is also popular on certain parts of the river.  The Bonnechere flows wildly past the Bonnechere Caves at a location east of Eganville called "The Fourth Chute". This remnant of the pre-cambrian era is one of the most picturesque parts of the river.

Golden LakeThere are many lakes hidden away throughout the township, but the most well known are Lake Clear, Golden Lake, Constant Lake and Silver Lake.  Each of these lakes has gorgeous scenery, rocky outcroppings, sandy beaches and crystal clear water...perfect for boating, fishing or swimming.

The township maintains public beaches on Lake Clear and on the Bonnechere River in Eganville. We also own and maintain a free public boat launch at Bonnechere Lodge on Golden Lake.

Resorts beckon tourists from far and wide. You'll find all the comforts of deluxe housekeeping cottages or the simplicity of camping under the stars.  Look for convenient amenities such as boat and canoe rentals, laundry facilities, camp stores and gas stations all near by.  Many of these resorts also offer winter attractions,  with year round cottages,  ice fishing, snowmobiling, snow shoeing and cross country skiing.

Children often dream of becoming a firefighter but end up pursuing other careers. For those who still have the ambition it may not be too late to fulfill the dream of becoming a member of the fire service.

From time to time the Bonnechere Valley Fire Department recruits new members to be part of our team. Interested men and women can pursue their chosen career and also be part of a dedicated group of firefighters. If you have the time and are willing to commit to training, working and serving the community there may be spot for you on the fire department.

  6. Fire safety training for employees and employers;
  7. Fire station tours for all age groups;
  8. Fire safety presentations on topics such as kitchen safety, home escape planning, fire prevention. If your group is interested in a specific fire safety topic let us know and we can tailor a presentation to your needs.
