After weeks of temperatures skating above 0°, the City has decided to close all municipal outdoor rinks and Hollinger Skate Path for the remainder of the winter season. Indoor public skating will now be offered free of charge. This includes Saturday skates at the McIntyre Arena and weekend skates at the Whitney Arena in Porcupine.

“Temperatures are not cooperating with outdoor rink maintenance,” said Lynne Grenon, Manager of Facilities and Recreation. “Ice conditions have deteriorated and it’s not staying cold long enough for a solid ice base to freeze. Instead, we’re making all of the season’s remaining indoor public skates free, waiving the $5 admission fee.

Skating is a fun winter pastime and indoor skating offers you the assurance that the ice surface is safe and solid. For available public skating times and arena locations, visit: Timmins.ca/our_services/recreation_services/skating.

On behalf of City Council and municipal staff, I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to family and friends on the passing of former Timmins’ Mayor Victor M. Power on Saturday, February 3, 2024.

Mr. Power was a pillar of the community, an inspiration to many who aspire to a career in public office. He led with conviction and understood the power of decision and opportunity.

His time as Mayor was marked by the efforts he made on multiple boards and organizations, including the Federation of Northern Ontario Municipalities and the Association of Municipalities of Ontario. As Councillor, he was instrumental in the construction of the Archie Dillon Sportsplex. He was a leader outside of Council Chambers, championing organizations like the Porcupine United Way and serving on the Timmins Police Services Board. He concerned himself with the prosperity of the community, and the sustainability of a municipal government with a clear vision of Timmins as thriving and distinctly northern.

He was also humble and took pride in highlighting the work of his colleagues, municipal staff, and community members. I was honoured to have him attend the inaugural meeting of council in November 2022, and felt the significance of his legacy as I took my oath of office. His genuine optimism and love for Timmins will continue to inspire. We remain forever in his debt for the contributions he made to the community we call home.

City of Timmins’ flags have been lowered to half-mast in Mr. Power’s honour, and we invite the public to pay their respects through a Book of Condolence at City Hall beginning Wednesday, February 7 at 8:30 a.m.

The flags at all City buildings have been lowered in honour of former Mayor Victor M. “Vic” Power, following his passing on Saturday, February 3, 2024.

Vic Power was Timmins’ longest-serving mayor, with a political career that spanned four decades and a legacy of impact and impression that continues to shape Timmins today.

Power was first elected to Timmins Town Council in 1966, and served for 14 years before being elected as Mayor of the City of Timmins in 1980. His time in public office included the amalgamation of the town with surrounding townships and communities in 1973. He served as City Mayor until 1988, again between 1991 and 2000, and was re-elected in 2003 before announcing his final retirement from politics in 2006.

Power was considered progressive by his peers and remained unfailingly optimistic about the future of Timmins. He considered his hometown an important business and service centre for northeastern Ontario, recognizing the value of the region’s natural resources and industry investment. He was also steadfast in his admiration for municipal leaders, both before and after his time in office, understanding the challenge of making critical decisions in a changing municipal landscape. As community leader, he considered himself part of a team, working together to create a sustainable city.

In 2007, the local airport was renamed the Timmins Victor M. Power Airport, and in 2009 Power was named to the Order of Canada for his exceptional contribution at a local and regional level.

The public is invited to pay their final respects to former Mayor Vic Power through a Book of Condolence. Mayor Michelle Boileau and Members of Council will sign the Book of Condolence on Tuesday, February 6, with public signing starting on Wednesday, February 7, 2024 at 8:30 a.m. in City Hall.

The City of Timmins, Environmental Services & Public Utilities Department wishes to advise the public of a scheduled water infrastructure maintenance activities affecting water quality and water shut off within the following area.

Area:
Couture Ave between Suzanne St and Jean St.

Date and Time of Disruption:
Starts January 30, 2024, from 8:30 AM to 6PM

All homes and businesses in the affected area could be without water for a few hours as well as coloured water and/or lower water pressure.

Properties in the area may experience brown or rust-coloured water during the schedule water maintenance. It is recommended not to drink or wash laundry with the discoloured water.

DOWNLOAD the Mayor's Reading List. A collection of children's books in French and English, available to borrow at the Timmins Public Library.


Developing strong literacy skills can start in the early critical years from 0-5, according to the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Program, an initiative designed to encourage reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers. It’s something that Mayor Michelle Boileau has put into practice with her young daughter Rosalie. To help celebrate Family Literacy Day, and the Timmins Public Library and EarlyON relaunch of the program, Mayor Boileau has released the Mayor’s Reading List, a collection of eleven (11) books that have become favourites in her home.

“Reading together, in both French and English, is one of the best parts of my day,” said Mayor Boileau. “It lets me practice mindfulness and connect with my daughter, while we work on her reading and language skills. It’s really rewarding.”

The collection includes stories about noisy bears and dancing giraffes, little foxes who won’t sleep, and an illustrated book from a favourite sitcom all about friends.

This Saturday, Mayor Boileau will head to the Timmins Public Library for their Family Literacy Day Celebration between 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Program has been revamped to include an interactive and engaging way for children and parents to track their reading progress. The program includes hands-on story tracking, themed adventures, and an enhanced reading experience.

“We’re good at remembering to read, not as good at remembering to track each book,” admits Mayor Boileau. “We’re excited to start tracking and we’ve checked with the library to make sure all of the recommended books are available to borrow.”

How do you read 1,000 books before kindergarten? Read one book a night and after one year, you will have read 365 books. That’s 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. It’s never too late to start and celebrate the joy of reading.
