October 30th is the deadline for pushing your portable basketball hoops back from the street. 

The extended good weather means we've enjoyed a longer season of outside recreation, but winter is coming and City crews want to be ready to remove snow and keep our roads clear.

Please push back your portable basketball hoops by October 30th.

The City of Timmins wishes to advise the public that the completion date for the Whitney-Tisdale Pumping Station No. 4 project has been extended to January 28, 2022, as approved by the Ministry of the Environment.

The project is nearing completion and the City is pleased to report that the micro-piling work undertaken to rectify issues encountered on the site has been completed. The commissioning activities, which are required to be completed before the new pumping station can be put into operation, have led to an extension of the completion date. The extension is necessary due to leaking of the equalization tanks and flooding of the pump equipment, which occurred during mandatory facility testing.

The City is confident that the contractor will complete the construction of a fully operational station before turning the project over to the City by the end of January, including any delays in final commissioning that may occur over the holiday break. The City has taken all commercially reasonable steps to mitigate the impact of any further delays.

The City can further confirm that the extension of the completion date is not expected to give rise to any additional costs above the amended remediation budget for the project.

It’s inevitable: winter is coming. In preparation for the cold and snow, the City of Timmins is reminding residents of winter by-laws that will shortly go into effect.

The winter overnight parking ban takes effect on Monday, November 1 and helps ensure that Public Works can complete snow removal operations and keep Timmins’ roads safe and clear. From November 1 until April 30 any vehicle parked on the street between the hours of 11:30 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. will be subject to a $50 fine and the vehicle may be towed at the expense of the owner (unless you are in an area exempt from the winter parking ban).

The City of Timmins will inform residents of winter road maintenance with temporary “no parking” snow removal signs (yellow and red in colour), posted before snow removal begins. A weekly snow removal schedule will also be posted online at and shared to the City’s Facebook page. Remember to look for signs posted on your street to ensure parking has not been restricted in your area.

The City of Timmins Snow By-law 1993-4162 provides guidelines for clearing snow from your property. Snow must never be placed onto the street or sidewalk. Moving snow from your driveway onto the sidewalk or street can create various safety hazards, obstruct pedestrian traffic, or obstruct the view of drivers. Even a small amount of snow left on a sidewalk can cause accessibility issues for some our residents.

And finally, if you plan on installing a temporary structure such as a winter car shelter, you will require a permit from the City of Timmins. A seasonal structure permit is just $15. Approved seasonal structures can be erected between October 1 and April 30. You will need to submit an application (available online at, your site plan, and payment to Service Timmins.

For additional information, contact Service Timmins at or by phone at 705-264-1331.
