Dear Residents & Visitors:

As the Chief Administrative Officer for the Town of Petrolia, I would like to welcome you to our re-designed website. I invite you to take a few minutes to explore the available resources our site has to offer from Council agendas, minutes, by-laws, Town departmental services, as well as business, tourism and community events information.


I am honoured to live and work in such a great town with a progressive Mayor and Council, alongside a very dedicated and talented staff.


Our Mission is to sustain the Town of Petrolia’s exceptional quality of life for current and future generations. To accomplish this we will serve the public interest through leadership, innovation and a focus on community priorities and strengths.
