Living In The City Of Timmins

Do you want access to lakes for swimming and fishing, forests for hiking and camping, rocks for
climbing and snow for skiing and snowmobiling? In Timmins you will have access to modern amenities and be part of a flourishing community in the heart of the mineral rich Canadian Shield. The community is surrounded by the boreal forest — a picturesque landscape that is only 90 minutes away by air from major centres.


First Nation, Métis and individuals from countries around the world (including but not limited to India, Nigeria and the Philippines) choose to make their home in Timmins. You’ll be able to share in their traditions, cuisine and history. The annual Multicultural Festival and National Aboriginal Day are community favourites. In addition, Le Centre culturel La Ronde is a local hotspot for Francophone arts, crafts, culture and cuisine.

TADH is a pioneer in telemedicine services, connecting physicians, staff and patients to a network of medical practitioners and specialists throughout Canada. TADH is also a teaching facility and has strong ties to the Northern Ontario School of Medicine.
