Welcome to Timmins! The heart of Northeastern Ontario.

The City's Economic Development Corporation and City staff through its Community Development Committee are just an e-mail away to help you with your development needs. Our Airport has direct access to Toronto's Pearson International Airport five times a day and daily flights to the far North and other Northern Cities. A skilled labour force second to none is supported by three post secondary institutions.

Timmins is a City that is open for business and we look forward to meeting new and old investors during 2005.
