The Township of McNab/Braeside offers a rural lifestyle along with cultural amenities. Made up of quaint villages and hamlets, residents and visitors alike enjoy all that the township’s natural landscape has to offer — from swimming, boating, fishing, rowing, canoeing/kayaking in the summer, to snowmobiling, ice fishing and skiing in the winter — as well as close proximity to small-town shops and big-city attractions. Only 30 minutes from Ottawa’s downtown core and with the TransCanada Highway a major artery through the area, the township is truly the gateway to the Upper Ottawa Valley.
