The City of Timmins Environmental Services wishes to advise the Public of a scheduled water infrastructure maintenance activities affecting water quality for several areas in Timmins, and Schumacher area.  This is schedule to start Wednesday, November 2, 2022.

  • All homes and businesses in the affected area could be without water for a few hours as well colored water and lower than normal water pressures

Homeowners in that area may experience brown or rust-colored water during the schedule water maintenance. It is recommended not to drink or wash laundry with the discolored water. While it is not harmful to your health, it can stain laundry. Should this occur, it is advised to turn on the COLD water tap closest to the source (usually your laundry tub tap) and let it run for approximately 15-20 minutes or until the water color has returned to normal.

City staff would like to thank residents for their patience and cooperation during this work.

The City of Timmins is scaring up some tips to make sure everyone has a safe and spooky Halloween. With children on the streets in search of treats, everyone needs to be alert and follow the rules of the road.

Tips for Trick-or-Treaters:
• Make sure you can be seen by carrying a flashlight or glow stick and sticking reflective tape to costumes.
• Walk on sidewalks and have an adult accompany young trick-or-treaters.
• Be careful crossing the street. Make eye contact with drivers before crossing and walk, don’t run, across the street.
• Obey traffic rules and signals.
• Stick to well-lit streets and stay alert.

Tips for Motorists:
• Be ready to stop at all times.
• Expect increased pedestrian traffic and watch for kids crossing the street or walking into traffic.
• Follow posted speed signs.
• Yield to pedestrians. That means stopping and yielding the entire roadway to pedestrians at crosswalks. Don’t proceed until all pedestrians have cleared the road.

Remind your little ghosts and goblins to be aware of their surroundings.

Consider visiting https://www.treataccessibly.com/ for ways you can make Halloween inclusive and fun for everyone. One idea is to host a trick-or-treat station at the end of your driveway if your entryway includes stairs. Make sure your entrance is well-lit and free from hazards. Have fun! Stay safe!

Remembrance Day 2022

Pictured L-R: Fran Labine (Legion Member), Eugene St. Jean (Vice President, Youth Education Chair, and Legion bugler), Mayor Kristin Murray, and Andrea Villeneuve (Sergeant-at-Arms).

Today, members of Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 88 joined Mayor Kristin Murray to honour our veterans and in celebration of the Poppy Campaign, which kicks-off Friday.

Each year, Canadians wear a Poppy as a visual pledge to honour Canada’s Veterans and remember those who sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today.

The Poppy should be worn during the Remembrance period from Friday, October 28 to November 11, 2022. The Poppy should be worn on the left side, over the heart. When you remove a Poppy, it should be disposed of respectfully. You may choose to remove your Poppy at the conclusion of our local Remembrance Day ceremonies and place it on a wreath as a sign of respect.

Remembrance Day ceremonies will be held at the cenotaph in Hollinger Park and in South Porcupine at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 287. In Timmins, the ceremony begins just before 11:00 a.m. The public are asked to be in place by 10:45a. In South Porcupine, the public can watch from Legion Drive and are asked to be in place by 10:30 a.m.
If you're not attending a ceremony, you can still observe a moment of silence at 11:00 a.m. in honour of our veterans and service members. Watch for Poppy boxes around the city. All donations support our local Royal Canadian Legions.
