Timmins - Ontario

Timmins, located in eastern Ontario near the Quebec border, is a city built on gold but sustained by its diversity and vitality. The birthplace of country music’s Shania Twain still bears signs of its mining past in the museums, historic buildings, and gold mine tours, while the baseball diamonds and other sports facilities in Hollinger Park give the city a modern touch. Timmins is a shopper’s dream; although it lacks the quaint little shops of other cities, the stores of Timmins offer almost anything a customer could desire.

One of the best ways to experience Timmins is to tour a gold mine, where visitors can still see the marks of picks and shovels. For those people who prefer fresh air, the city has an abundance of outdoor activities in areas such as Kettle Lakes Provincial Park. Wilderness tours, nature trails, and open areas provide opportunities for casual hiking and playing games, while golf courses and ski resorts cater to more organized sports. Swimming and waterfront activities are available at the more than five hundred lakes in the Timmins area, all within easy reach of the city.

Timmins is an unexpected jewel of artistic and cultural events. The annual multicultural festival celebrates the city’s varied origins, while concerts and art displays highlight the residents’ many talents. With gold mines, shopping, outdoor activities, and facilities for all kinds of events, Timmins is a good place for the whole family to visit.
