In June, much of Timmins heads outside to make active use of our natural trails, rivers, lakes, and parks … and this year, all that activity could result in a $100,000 win for the community.

The City of Timmins has signed up for the ParticipACTION Community Challenge presented by Novo Nordisk, a national initiative that encourages everyone in Canada to get active throughout the month of June. Canada’s Most Active Community will be awarded with $100,000 to support local physical activity and sports initiatives. What counts as physical activity? Any bodily movement produced by skeletal muscles that results in energy expenditure, and increases heart rate and breathing.

To help rally for Timmins and win the grand prize this year, we need everyone to participate!

• Local businesses and organizations: Register today on the ParticipACTION website. Then throughout June, track the number of people getting active and the instances of physical activity to help our community compete for the title.

• Individuals: Sign up on the ParticipACTION website. Then, commit to getting active throughout June and browse different opportunities to help you move more where you live, learn and/or work!

The Community Challenge is open to everyone! All community events registered on the challenge webpage from June 1 – 30 will count toward a community’s total score. After June 30, finalist communities will be invited to submit an application explaining why they deserve to be Canada’s Most Active Community. Individuals can also sign up and get moving in support of their community’s total by getting active in June.

Why does Timmins deserve to be Canada’s Most Active Community?

“Affordable and accessible recreation is part of a safe, healthy, and vibrant community,” says Meagan Baranyk, Community Programs Manager. “Through the municipal Community Safety and Well-Being Plan, we have looked for ways to encourage physical activity in order to create a greater sense of belonging in our local neighbourhoods, and to improve overall well-being. Through the City’s Master Recreation Plan, we have tangible projects that could be helped with $100,000. I’m confident that Timmins is not only Canada’s Most Active Community, but the community who is best prepared to support local sports and recreation initiatives.”

Join the City of Timmins in the movement to build a stronger, healthier and more active Timmins! Help us become Canada’s Most Active Community!

When it comes to line painting, you can think of the 4 W's of Paint Performance: weather, winter, water-based, and wear.

The weather, the winter, the type of water- based paint we have to use, and the traffic all impact how long the lines last.

The Timmins Traffic Dept. paints 367 km's of lines each year. Plus, intersection stop bars, crosswalks, arrows, and bike lanes. It's an annual process.

The paint: It has to be water-based paint with low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's) with less impact to the environment. This is a regulation set by the province in the Ontario Traffic Manual. We buy 6,000 litres of white paint, 4,000 litres of yellow paint, and 1,000 litres of white paint for crosswalks.

Application: Water-based paint is applied when the pavement is 10°c and rising. We hit those consistent temperatures mid-May in Timmins. The paint has to be applied on a clean, dry road surface. Not when it's raining and once street sweeping has been completed. Street sweeping starts when the temperatures are consistently above freezing.

The lanes are pre-marked first. This ensures the correct position, direction, width, and length of the lines, and acts as a guide for painting. We started pre-marking main arterial roads, like Algonquin, at the end of April.

We have one lane liner machine that paints all of the main arterial and secondary roads in Timmins. We use a walk-behind paint machine for intersections and crosswalks.

Vanishing lines: Line paint wears off more quickly in the city than on the highway because of traffic patterns, frequency of lane changes, and the harsh climate. The sand and salt that Public Works uses to keep the roads clear in the winter, plus the scrape of the plow, wears the lines down, which is why line painting is an annual job.

Improvements: We like long-lasting lines too. Our Traffic Dept. has started to use thermoplastics at intersections for stop bars and turning arrows, which have a lifespan of up to 3 years. We’re also making capital investments in the Connecting Link project to add durable pavement markings on the brand-new road surface with a lifespan of 5+ years. Our staff stay up-to-date on the latest technology, application methods, and training to improve the painting process.
