Conquering local issues

Spanning nearly 8,000 square kilometres, the County of Renfrew is known for its beautiful rural scenery and vibrant local neighbourhoods. From the outskirts of Ottawa to the northern tip of Algonquin Park, the Renfrew County office works with community partners to strengthen the social fabric of our region.  

Thanks to the generosity of our incredible donors, we support the most vulnerable people in our community. This includes at-risk preschoolers and youth, families living in poverty, isolated seniors, and individuals struggling with mental health issues.
