Timmins is located in the heart of Northeastern Ontario on the Mattagami River. As one of the richest mineral producers, the city offers affordable living in an urban-rural setting, but still retains its small town feel.

The city provides a balanced lifestyle with the right mix of cultures, activities and amenities. A magnificent wilderness surrounded by over 500 lakes and hundreds of kilometres of scenic trails, Timmins is recognized as an outdoor paradise for kayaking, camping, fishing, biking, hunting, snowmobiling and ATV riding. Residents and visitors can also enjoy the many different species of Canadian wildlife at the Cedar Meadows Wilderness Park, go skiing or tubing at the Kamiskotia Snow Resort, shop at one of northeastern Ontario’s largest regional shopping centres or box stores and take in the sounds of the Timmins Symphony Orchestra. The city also hosts many family friendly events, such as the Multicultural Festival, the Summerfest Concert Series, the Great Canadian Kayak Challenge and Festival and more.

Recognized for its well-educated bilingual workforce (French and English), Timmins has three post-secondary institutions, Université de Heart, Northern College and Collège Boréal.
