Welcome to Petrolia, “The Greatest Town on Earth”.


Over the past 150 years, our community has exhibited the kind of vitality and imagination that has created an exceptional lifestyle for our residents and wonderful experiences for our visitors.


We are focused on the health and wellness of our community supported by excellent Health Care and wellness facilities and services that are available to everyone. Our efforts would not succeed without the many volunteers who cheerfully give countless hours of their time to programs that benefit friends, family and neighbours.


Whether you are a visitor, a newcomer to our community or a long term resident, we invite you to enjoy all Petrolia has to offer. Please try out our new website and let us know if you have any suggestions for improvement.

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 high 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.
