District 21 Renfrew was formed in 1978. Our district extends 130 kilometres along the Highway 17 corridor, from Deep River through Petawawa, Pembroke, Cobden, Renfrew and Arnprior. The Highway 60 corridor boasts membership from such communities as Combermere, Barry’s Bay, Wilno, Killaloe, Eganville and Douglas. Outlying communities such as Round Lake Centre, Beachburg, Westmeath and Calabogie are also important to our district.
Our members include those who work in and retire from education – including child care and early years, schools and school boards, post-secondary, private schools and more. We play a key role in helping members stay active and connected – with each other and the community.
District 21 is situated on the traditional territory of the Algonquin and Anishinabek people. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties. We also acknowledge the urban Indigenous communities in our district.
We recognize the inequities connected to colonization and commit to working towards creating a just, inclusive and vibrant community for all. We invite our members to reflect on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action.
