February 13, 2024 – Ottawa, Ont. – National Defence / Canadian Armed Forces

Local Canadian Army Reserve units are training in multiple locations in Northern Ontario in the upcoming weeks. Dates include February 15, February 22, and March 7, 2024. Most training will be done in the evening hours of the dates specified.

33 Canadian Brigade Group’s Northern Tactical Group, consisting of soldiers from The Irish Regiment of Canada (Sudbury) and The Algonquin Regiment (North Bay & Timmins) will conduct this infantry navigation training using official Land Use Agreements in the following locations:

• Sudbury: Kivi Park & Crowley Lake Outpost;
• North Bay: Laurier Woods Conservation Area; and
• Timmins: Hersey Lake Conservation Area.

Members of the public may see Canadian Army soldiers in uniform with their service weapons, and military vehicles on local roads and highways.

No ammunition of any kind will be present.

This training is practice for later activities at Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) bases and ranges and allows these units and personnel to confirm skills locally before firing live ammunition at approved training facilities.

This important exercise also prepares Canadian Army Reserve members to operate in various weather conditions and maintain fitness and stamina while carrying their equipment. Regular, scheduled training keeps our soldiers and units ready to respond to missions in Canada like floods and wildfires and support international stability operations with partners and allies. All Canadian Army Reserve members train regularly to maintain and further develop their skills in safe and effective operations, and to test discipline, safety, and effectiveness.

All measures are being taken to ensure minimum inconvenience in these areas during the exercise dates, and members of the public are asked to use extra caution when approaching military vehicles and are thanked in advance for their understanding and co-operation.

The City of Timmins is honouring three exceptional community volunteers with the first Heart of Gold Civic Awards, a new recognition program that celebrates individuals and groups for their outstanding accomplishments and contributions to the community.


The recipients awarded at Tuesday night’s council meeting are:

Ron and Lucille Moisan (Volunteer and Community Service) – Ron and Lucille Moisan were nominated for their over 20 years of volunteer service to the South Porcupine Food Bank, and for their work on the Bannerman Park Porcupine Restoration Committee. They are credited with being a “community-minded couple” who are well-known for helping anyone in need for over 60 years.

In 2003, recognizing that Bannerman Park was underused and could use some rehabilitation, Ron and Lucille formed a committee of residents who wished to assist with restoration of the park. Through their leadership, a park design was approved and reconstruction of the gardens, lighting, pathways, and gazebo was completed over several years. Efforts included significant fundraising for the upgrades and on-going maintenance of the park. Bannerman Park is now a popular space for weddings, picnics, and summer concerts on the shores of Porcupine Lake.

Cameron Grant (Volunteer and Community Service) – Cameron Grant was nominated by the 2022-2023 Board of Directors for Mount Jamieson Resort for his outstanding contributions to the organization. He is commended for his work on rebranding the snow resort, rebuilding its reputation as a pillar of sports and community excellence, and helping to create a viable and sustainable recreation facility for Timmins and area.

Through Grant’s stewardship as a member of the Board of Directors, he is credited with creating a space that celebrates innovation, supports diversity, equity, and inclusion, and remains accessible to residents in Timmins and the region.

“We at Mount Jamieson cannot stress enough our appreciation and recognition of his tireless hours of commitment, dedication, expertise, and experience, as well as his love and passion for the sport [of skiing] … and to ensure that the appropriate mechanisms are in place to secure [the resort’s] longevity and success well into the future.” ~ Mount Jamieson Board of Directors 2022-23


Recipients of the Heart of Gold Recognition Program are recognized once a month during a regular meeting of council. Residents are encouraged to nominate someone they know who has made a positive impact on the community or achieved outstanding accomplishment in the following categories:
• Volunteer and Community Service
• Youth Community and Civic Engagement
• Achievement in Sports
• Achievement in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics)

Beginning Monday, February 12, Timmins’ paratransit service will transition to an automated mobility management system called Timmins Transit On-Demand. The new software platform is powered by Spare, and includes an easy-to-use app that will make booking an accessible ride fast and convenient.

On Monday, paratransit users will be able to request and pay for shared-ride, curb-to-curb service through the Timmins Transit On-Demand app. The app eliminates the need for advanced booking and provides real-time trip notifications, making it easier to plan travel. The paratransit service area is also being expanded. Coverage will extend north to areas off Laforest Rd., with service to the Timmins Victor M. Power Airport; south to areas around Goldmine Rd.; east to the Hallnor Rd. and Hwy 101 E. intersection; and, west to Kamiskotia Rd., with service to Mount Jamieson Resort.

The Timmins Transit On-Demand app is available to download now from the iOS App Store or Google Play Store. Paratransit users are encouraged to download the app, create an account, and familiarize themselves with how to book, pay, and confirm their ride.

Timmins Transit On-Demand is one way the City is looking to modernize public transportation in Timmins. Plans are underway to pilot a microtransit system in Porcupine and South Porcupine that will expand the current transit service area, using the City’s paratransit buses. Microtransit solutions allow cities to fill gaps in their fixed-route network by connecting riders to existing conventional transit. That means, riders in Porcupine and South Porcupine, including Connaught Hill, who do not live near a static bus stop will be able to use Timmins Transit On-Demand to catch their bus. More information about the expanded microtransit service will be available soon.

Paratransit is an accessible transit solution that requires registration. Current registered users are already pre-approved for use of the app. New users can register by filling out an application available online at Timmins.ca. For assistance, visit the Timmins Transit main terminal on Spruce St. S. or call 705-360-2600 ext. 3504.

Delivering a modern, efficient, and convenient public transportation network is Timmins Transit’s main goal. New technologies are being put in place to help move more people and make better use of Timmins Transit resources.

P. 13, as amended.

d. stacking shall not be permitted.

Institutional Zone – NA-IN

a. a storage container shall conform to the accessory building or structure requirements for the zone in which it is located.

Where the area of the storage container is less than 15 square metres (161.4 square feet), a “Small Accessory Structure Permit” shall be required from the City of Timmins By-Law Services Department.

The proposed amendment is general in nature and applies to various properties throughout the City of Timmins, therefore no key map has been provided in this notice.

ANY PERSON may attend the public meeting and/or make written or verbal representation either in support of or in opposition to the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment.

If a person or public body would otherwise have an ability to appeal the decision of Council of the City of Timmins to the Ontario Land Tribunal but the person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the City of Timmins before the by-law is passed, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision.

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting, or make written submissions to the City of Timmins before the by-law is passed, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Land Tribunal unless, in the opinion of the Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to do so.

If you wish to be notified of the decision of the City of Timmins on the proposed zoning by-law amendment, you must make a written request to Steph Palmateer, City Clerk, City of Timmins, 220 Algonquin Boulevard East, Timmins, Ontario, P4N 1B3.
