Timmins, North Bay,

Northern Ontario cities and towns we visited
in July of 2003. The trip took us from Toronto
to North Bay, Sudbury, Timmins, Wawa,
Sault Ste. Marie.

During our stay in Sault Ste. Marie we traveled
by train to see beautiful Agawa Canyon.
Our last stop was on Manitoulin Island, where we hiked the northern part of the Bruce Trail.
Sault Ste Marie lanterns are on the separate page: Sault Ste. Marie.

Sudbury is located about 400km to the north
of Toronto. It is the largest city in Northern Ontario
by population.

In 1853 during the railway construction huge Nickel-Copper deposits were found around
the French Jesuit mission. Mining operations started and Sudbury was incorporated as a town in 1893
and as a city in 1930. Sudbury is home to the Big Nickel, 9-meter replica of a 1951 Canadian Nickel.

Timmins is situated 300km to the north of Sudbury. Gold was discovered in the area in
the beginning of 19th century.
The mining settlement was named Timmins in 1912. In 1973 Timmins and surrounding townships were
incorporated as City of Timmins.

The city's economy is based on natural resource
extraction and is supported by industries related
to lumbering and to the mining of gold, zinc, copper, nickel and silver.

North Bay, the city about 350km north of Toronto,
on the East shore of Lake Nipissing.
Economic development started in 1882, when Canada Pacific Railroad reached the area.
North Bay was incorporated as a town in 1891 and as a city in 1925.

After we took a picture of the first lantern,
a minor medical emergency distracted us from
exploring the rest of the city.

Manitoulin Island is located in Lake Huron in
the Province of Ontario. It is the largest lake island
in the world. Manitoulin Island itself has 108
freshwater lakes, some of which have their own
islands; in turn several of these "islands within
islands" have their lakes as well.

The island is accessible by a car from the North
through Little Current Swing Bridge and by a Ferry
from Tobermory (Bruce Peninsula).
