History / Biography
The Township of McNab, Renfrew County, Ontario, was incorporated effective January 1, 1850 under the terms of the Baldwin Act, Chapter 81, Canada Statutes, 1849. This act provided for the creation of municipal governments at the town, village and township levels and identified those which would automatically be granted municipal status when the act came into effect, January 1, 1850. The township of McNab was surveyed and named McNab in 1824; the area covered approx. 64,000 acres. The first group of settlers arrived from Scotland to the township in 1825. Between 1840 and 1844, cultivated acreage in the township rose by 65%. Before the first McNab township hall was erected, the town council met in the house of Daniel McIntyre (an early Stewartville resident). Later, the council met in Stewartville’s township hall. Allan Stewart donated land for the township hall in 1850. Under the provisions of Bill 26, the Savings and Restructuring act, 1996, McNab Township was amalgamated with Braeside village to form the new Township of McNab/Braeside effective January 1, 1998. The Village of Braeside was part of the Township of McNab until its incorporation in 1921.
