Why Timmins?

Timmins is a central hub for Northeastern Ontario where residents enjoy the outdoors and enjoy recreational activities such as camping, world-class fishing, wilderness and snowmobile trails.

Direct flights to Toronto are available at the local airport via several carriers. There are many support networks in the community, including the local Timmins and District Hospital, local sports leagues for children and adults (hockey, baseball, basketball, etc.), golf courses, ski resorts cross-country and downhill skiing, a community pool, and many other community events including fairs, carnivals, and concerts that provide year-round entertainment.

Residents of Timmins enjoy a significantly lower cost of living than cities in southern Ontario.

This lower cost of living means you have more money left over for the things you want.
