Maniwaki Real Estate Listings and Information
Maniwaki is located 132 km north of Ottawa/Gatineau at the junction of the Desert and Gatineau Rivers.It is the administrative centre for La Vallée-de-la-Gatineau Regional County Municipality and has a population of over 4,000 people.
The history of Maniwaki is closely linked to that of the adjacent Kitigan Zibi Reserve, because the Town of Maniwaki was developed on land that was originally part of this reserve. Its municipal lands were included in historical land claims by Kitigan Zibi; some of which were settled as recently as 2007. The township limits were drawn in 1850 and given the name of Maniwaki (Algonquian for "Mary's Land").
Logging, forestry and tourism play an important role in Maniwaki. Services include an airport, hospital, hotels and inns, bed & breakfast, outfitters and all services that one would expect to find in a busy town of this size. The areas around are well known for hunting and fishing with many lodges, resorts and outfitters – a veritable sportsman’s paradise!
