Deep River is a best kept secret!
Located on the scenic Ottawa River and known as the home of Canadian Nucleur Laboratories (CNL, formerly AECL), Deep River is rich in culture and amenities. It boasts: Science Academy, Symphony Orchestra, Golf Course, Yacht & Tennis Club, Public Beaches, Public Library, Community Centre, Legion, Hospital, Churches, Daycares, Police Department, and Fire Department. Deep River is beautiful, peaceful and has a warm and welcoming small-town community feel.
With proximity to other major centres - only 15 minutes from Petawawa, 35 minutes from Pembroke and 120 minutes from Ottawa - Deep River is its own sovereign town. Its 4500 residents are one third seniors, CNL employees (totalling more than 3000 with approximately 1000 living in Deep River), and people who have lived there all their lives.
Deep River could be the next Elliott Lake
Deep River is an ideal retirement spot. Price-wise, housing is approximately 40 percent less than Ottawa. The senior's community is strong - with a number of activities and programs geared toward seniors.
For example, the Paramedic Program (link on the right) has been in place for almost two years. Children and grand children can easily visit from Ottawa with only a two-hour drive.
Most people who live in Deep River rarely leave. Those that do, often return. Once you live there, you'll know why.
