Pembroke has a diverse and skilled workforce. Continued investment in the Pembroke Regional Hospital, the Superior Court House, Algonquin College, and the retail, service, and manufacturing sectors has meant more employment opportunities in Pembroke. The continued expansion of Garrison Petawawa and CNL has also contributed very positively to our local economy, creating an increased demand for products and services.
