The City of Timmins Environmental Services & Public Utilities Department wishes to advise the public of a water main break in the following area:

Area:
On Bonaventure Dr. between Meadow Ln and Shirley St

Date & Time of Disruption:
February 28, 2024 - Temporary water disruption 10:30 AM to 6:00 PM

Homeowners and businesses within the area might experience water service disruptions, low pressure, brown or rust-coloured water. It is recommended not to drink or wash laundry with discoloured 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 colour has returned to normal.

Road closure within this area might last longer than the estimated date and time of disruption once the repair is made.

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

**UPDATE - 4:51 p.m. - Enbridge Gas is charging the gas main and will start going door-to-door to connect with residents and make sure everything is back on.**

 **UPDATE - Enbridge Gas will be going door-to-door to homes in the Bonaventure Dr. area. If residents are not at home, notice will be left with further instructions.**

A natural gas line has been severed during repair of a watermain break in the area of Bonaventure Dr.

Natural gas service has been turned off. Enbridge Gas is currently on-site.

Approximately 200 homes will be without natural gas service while repairs are being made. Contractors are working to have service restored quickly. Currently, the City of Timmins does not have an estimated time of restoration.

Once repairs have been completed, residents will need to have Enbridge Gas relight their natural gas appliances. Please visit https://www.enbridgegas.com/contact-us/faq for additional information.

The City of Timmins will continue to provide updates as available. We appreciate your patience.

The Northern Ontario Women’s (NOW) Caucus began as a conversation over a year ago between two mayors, both women and both elected to serve their community. Mayor Michelle Boileau of Timmins and Mayor Cheryl Fort of Hornepayne recognized that the support they were looking for as municipal leaders, was a shared experience for women in office.

NOW has since grown to over 21 participants, all mayors of Northern Ontario communities. Formal membership is currently being offered to elected officials in Northern Ontario, who identify as women, and who want to lead the conversation on priorities and issues that are directly affecting women in the northern region.

The group recently met at the Rural Ontario Municipal Association (ROMA) conference in Toronto to establish the caucus’ terms of reference, mission and vision. The mission – to create an alliance of women municipal representatives across Northern Ontario, [and] to create and preserve space for women in municipal politics, as every voice matters.

NOW’s membership includes women with diverse professional backgrounds in economic development, locomotive engineering, skilled trades training, health care, employment services, marketing, business management, and more. Many have multi-year experience on municipal council. The opportunity to support each other professionally, to develop leadership skills, and to increase the number of women participating in local politics, is invaluable. It sets a foundation from which NOW can advocate, support, and improve the quality of life in Northern Ontario.

NOW’s goal is to not only amplify the voice of women in Northern Ontario, but to speak as one voice that is focused on building positive relationships for the communities it represents. The group is looking to work together and with federal and provincial partners to bring women’s perspective to the challenges and opportunities facing each community.

Moving forward, NOW is expected to meet quarterly. The group is working to formalize membership, an election procedure for an executive committee, and to develop a strategic plan that identifies common priorities. With a vision of becoming, “a strong network of women shaping the future of Northern Ontario communities”, NOW is gaining momentum and has the motivation to legitimize the role of women in politics.


Quotes:

“Strong and resilient women applaud, uphold, and have other each others’ backs. Impact happens when entire societies celebrate women and stand with them in equality. NOW is committed to forging women's economic empowerment; supporting women and girls into leadership; designing and building infrastructure that meets the needs of women and girls; and, helping women and girls make informed decisions about their health. We can make Northern Ontario one of the best places to live for women!” ~ Mayor Cheryl Fort, Hornepayne

“There is power in standing together as women, united in our commitment to serve and represent our respective communities. The female voice in politics is important because it reflects the unique challenges and opportunities women and girls experience. It’s invaluable to bring that perspective forward, and to bring that perspective into focus. NOW allows municipal leaders to work together to inform decision-making and help develop policies to improve, not only the lives of women in Northern Ontario, but the quality of life for all residents. I’m excited to see what NOW can accomplish. Let’s be heard. Let’s make change. Let’s celebrate our success.” ~ Mayor Michelle Boileau, Timmins
