From dawn to dusk, Oziles’ ice huts on Petrie Island create one of the biggest ice-fishing villages in eastern Ontario. The tackle shop is also fully stocked with everything necessary for a day on the ice for both large and small groups. Oziles rents ice huts with stoves and scenic picture windows, from which groups of up to six can watch the ice fishing holes outside.
During warmer months, shop’s rental watercrafts, which require no boat operator’s card to use, exemplify the outfitter’s mission to empower Ottawans to explore and conserve their surrounding waterways. Before passengers embark on their trips, the crew familiarizes them with their boats and fishing gear, and teaches hand signals for passing by ducks before bidding them bon voyage. The crew also repairs, cleans, and winterizes private boats and furnishes captains with year-round boat storage at the marina.

Maurice Yelle Ltd. can excavate plots for new home construction, install water and sewer services at that residence, and then stop by later to drop off a delivery of decorative stones and topsoil for the home's lawn. This full service makes residential and commercial construction efficient, explaining why the City of Ottawa hired Maurice Yelle to replace its lead water pipes. The company serves renovators, rehabbers, and repairmen by renting heavy-duty equipment and the services of a licensed operator. Maurice Yelle also sells decorative landscaping products to beautify properties.
