G’day and welcome to Discover Eganville and the online headquarters of the Eganville and Area Community Development Group!
Founded in November 2016, we are a volunteer group of local residents and business owners working in partnership to rebuild our small community and surrounding area.
A caring community that harbours the essential values of small town culture and heritage with a diverse and resourceful future where we enjoy a variety of economic opportunities in an affordable, beautiful area to live in. To become the jewel in the crown of the Ottawa Valley.
To promote tourism development and foster a vibrant social and business community in sync with growing and inspiring a community where family, health, safety, and happiness are keys to quality of life.
Do you have a general inquiry, a great idea for a project or would like to contact one of our Executive or Committee Chairs? Maybe you would like to volunteer or become a member of our team!
