With Timmins entering Step One of the province’s reopening framework on Friday, we can expect to see more traffic on our streets and being directed through construction detours from the Connecting Link project. Please continue to drive with patience and stay alert.

This is a reminder to drivers that traffic along Algonquin Blvd. West continues to be detoured down Wilson Ave. with temporary traffic signals at the intersection of Wilson Ave. and Cameron St. With more vehicles navigating the detour, please anticipate delays.

Large trucks continue to use the northern truck detour around Laforest Rd. Please adhere to all speed limit reductions. When sharing the road with a large vehicle, remember that large trucks have increased blind spots, need more room to manoeuver, and take longer to speed up or stop.

The City of Timmins Environmental Services Department wishes to advise the public of hydrant flushing and watermain cleaning activities in the following areas.

  • Area: 1) All areas west of College thru to Lonergan areas

  • Time of Disruption: June 28 2021 7:30am until to July 8 2021 12:00pm

Homeowners and businesses may experience short-term loss in water pressure or experience brown or rust-coloured water following the testing. It is recommended not to drink or wash laundry with the discoloured water. While it is not harmful to your health, it can stain laundry. Should this occur, it is advised to turn off your tap for 10-20 minutes in order to allow the crew to complete the test. Once the test is complete and the work crew has left the area, 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 colour has returned to normal.

City staff would like to thank residents for their patience and cooperation during this necessary process, and advise that if there are any questions, concerns or requests for additional information, they may contact the Service Timmins at (705) 264-1331. After-hours emergencies should be directed to 705-264-1201.

Mayor George Pirie has ended the State of Emergency for the City of Timmins effective immediately. The decision was made after discussion with the Municipal Emergency Control Group ahead of the City and region moving into Step 1 of the province’s “Roadmap to Reopen” this Friday.

The State of Emergency, enacted on May 17, 2021, was declared for the following reasons:
- To mobilize additional resources for Timmins and the region;
- To increase access to vaccines and supplies;
- To enhance capacity for COVID-19 testing; and,
- To help aid support for a community isolation centre.

“Through the combined efforts of our community partners, we were able to quickly access additional vaccines and drop-in clinics to protect our residents and add additional community testing to help stop the spread of COVID-19,” says Mayor George Pirie. “The work of the Porcupine Health Unit (PHU), Timmins and District Hospital (TADH), Cochrane District Emergency Medical Services (EMS), and Cochrane District Social Services Administration Board (CDSSAB) has been exemplary. It is due to their diligence that we can now lift the State of Emergency and prepare to reopen safely.”

The lifting of the State of Emergency does not remove any of the public health measures issued by the PHU. Residents are still required to maintain social distancing; follow indoor and outdoor gathering limits; wear a mask properly; and, continue to stay at home, isolate, and make arrangements to get tested if they experience symptoms.

“As always, the City of Timmins is committed to protecting the health and safety of our citizens,” adds Mayor Pirie. “We need to continue to follow the public health measures that are in place and get vaccinated so that we don’t repeat this cycle of reopening and lockdown. Being able to reopen our region is great news for Timmins and particularly for the local businesses who have been closed for an extended period of time. We can now do what we do best as a community, support each other by supporting local.”
