The City of Timmins would like to take this opportunity to clarify some stories circulating in the public regarding the health of Mayor George Pirie. Several weeks ago, Mayor Pirie suffered a medical issue that required a short stay at the hospital. He was released shortly thereafter and has been recovering at home. There are no long-term effects to his condition and he is expected to make a full recovery.

Beginning as early as next week, Mayor Pirie expects to gradually return to work. Please be advised that he will not be doing any interviews for the time being and they will be deferred to the Deputy Mayor, Andrew Marks. As Deputy Mayor, Councillor Marks has been representing Council and participating on the Municipal Emergency Control Group.

We would like to take this time to thank the community for sending their well wishes.

The City of Timmins and its local suppliers are thrilled about the recent announcement from IAMGOLD Corporation about the Côté Gold Project located near Gogama, between Timmins and Sudbury. In June 2017, IAMGOLD announced a joint venture project between IAMGOLD Corporation and Sumitomo Metal Mining Co., (“Sumitomo”) of Japan. The joint venture highlights the Côté Gold Project’s economic potential as this is Sumitomo’s first investment in Canada in over 50 years. 
 
Côté is one of Canada’s largest gold projects with an initial capital expenditure close to $1 billion; it will become a state of the art mine.  The mine life is a minimum of 16-years and the project will create 1,000 construction jobs and 450 full-time jobs when Côté enters production.  This type of economic activity has not been seen in the area in a number of years and is very welcomed news said Fred Gibbons, Chairperson of the Timmins Economic Development Corporation.   

Andrew Marks, Timmins’ Deputy Mayor, stated that “the City and the Timmins Economic Development Corporation have been meeting and assisting IAMGOLD since they started this project.  It is so wonderful to see it come to fruition.  This project is very important to our region and will provide excellent job opportunities for our residents.  It will also provide excellent opportunities for our extensive supplier network to showcase their products and skill sets.  We look forward to continue working with them to facilitate the development of their project and welcome them to our region”.

Ross Woodward, President of The Bucket Shop, stated that “congratulations are in order to all the stakeholders at IAMGOLD who were involved in acquiring the necessary approvals to get the Côté Gold Project launched. Your investment will have a significant positive impact on employment opportunities and on the Timmins economy in general. The City of Timmins and the local companies that service the mining sector are well positioned to provide industry leading support to this project. As a proud member of the Timmins mining services sector we wish you every success in the announcement of the Côté Gold Project launch”.

Val Venneri, Chamber President, stated “we’re pleased to see that the Province has given the green light to the IAMGOLD Côté Project. Our mining supply network is very strong and is looking forward to working with the individuals working on the Côté Project. We know that the mining company has long been awaiting the approval process and this long-term investment in near Timmins will do wonders to help restart our economy. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the mining industry stepped up in support of our local SMEs and we are thankful to have them in our region. IAMGOLD will not only bring new job growth for our region but we will see new families and new interests move to our region to support our tax base. We look forward to our ongoing work together as we continue to promote responsible mining in the Province.”

July 23, 2020 - As Stage 3 reopening in the City of Timmins began last Friday, citizens are reminded to take extra precautions to keep themselves and others safe, while following public health guidelines.

The City is pleased to announce that all playgrounds and parklands cared for by the municipality (48 of which include play structures), have all been reopened.

With the approval of the Porcupine Health Unit, the City was able to announce the opening of the Water Parks/Splash Pads at both White Water and Hollinger Parks on June 17, during Stage 2 of reopenings. Also located at the Hollinger Park and open for business is The Miniputt and Batting Cages, operated by D&M Recreation.

The skateboard parks are open and being well-used. Boat launches are also open, and Gillies Lake beach is open for public use, but not being monitored by a lifeguard.

July 22, 2020 - As per recent direction from the Porcupine Health Unit (PHU), effective tomorrow, Thursday, July 23, face coverings or masks will be required to be worn in all indoor public spaces.

The PHU order stipulates, among other details that:
“All members of the public and employees who enter or remain in an enclosed public space of the business or organization are required to wear a mask or face covering that covers their mouth, nose and chin without gaping. Enclosed public spaces means indoor spaces of business and organizations which are accessed by the public.”

Members of the public wishing to enter any City building that is open to the public will be required to wear a mask or face covering. Should a member of the public be unwilling or unable to wear a mask or face covering, they will be directed to access services via Service Timmins’ telephone or web-based options. Members of the public will not be permitted to enter these buildings without a mask or face covering, and are expected to provide their own supply. The City will continue to remain closed for in-person meetings and all necessary meetings with the public will be performed virtually.

Staff who are dealing with members of the public are not required to wear masks or face coverings provided they continue to serve the public from behind installed safety barriers (plexi-glass) and continue to practice proper hygiene. All staff who are unable to maintain physical distancing of two metres from each other or from members of the public are required to wear a mask.

Face coverings and masks will also be required to be worn by customers who wish to access the Timmins Transit terminal, buses and shelters. It is noted, again, that face coverings or masks will not be provided, and customers are expected to provide their own supply. Service will not be denied to customers who are unable to wear a mask for medical reasons.

“Implementing such measures will help to minimize the potential for our customers to contract or spread COVID-19 and will also help to increase ridership capacity on our buses,” explained Manager of Transit Services Fred Gerrior. “As such, previously cordoned-off seating to promote physical distancing will now be available for public use.”

The current Saturday service level remains in effect until further notice, however, it is anticipated that Transit Services will gradually return to regular hours in the coming weeks.

We would like to thank all citizens who have been successfully reducing the spread of COVID-19 in our community, and remind everyone to continue being kind to one another through these challenging and uncertain times.

July 22, 2020 - During their last regular meeting, Timmins City Council approved a new Community Improvement Plan to replace the original, which was created in 2007.

Over the past year, Community Development Planner David St. Onge has been part of a Council Committee reviewing the plan and working on ways to improve it.

“The new plan has a real focus on improving the downtown appearance, and items that are beneficial to everyone as a whole,” explained St. Onge. “Two new features we’re really excited about are the Façade Improvement Grants, and Tax Increment Rebate Grants. These will really help in beautifying our downtown cores and help businesses grow.”

Other grants will also come into effect through the plan at later times, such as the Public Art Grant and Sidewalk Patio Grant.

All information regarding the new plan and grants available can be found HERE.

July 15, 2019 - The textile diversion program, run in partnership with Recycling Rewards, is returning to Timmins after a successful run in September 2019. The pilot program includes a curbside collection service for items such as used clothing, fabric and linens, as well as damaged or ripped textiles.

The program aims to benefit everyone by diverting textiles that end up in the landfill, and by contributing to the Children’s Wish Foundation, at zero cost to and with no labour involvement from the City and its taxpayers.

This year’s collection will take place from Monday, July 27 to Friday, July 31, 2020. Due to the timing of the event and in an effort to reduce waste, pamphlets and bags will not be sent out to individual homes. If you wish to participate in the curbside textile collection program, place your items in a large, clear bad and place the bag(s) at the curb no later than 7am on your textile collection day.

For more information regarding the collection days, routes, eligibility, and program details, we encourage residents to contact Recycling Rewards at 1-866-927-3873 or visit their website https://www.recyclingrewards.com/timmins

Click on each day below to view the list of eligible streets.
Monday, July 27
Tuesday, July 28
Wednesday, July 29
Thursday, July 30
Friday, July 31

The City of Timmins continues to encourage the use of the Timmins Recyclepedia app which allows residents to sign up for pick up reminders. The app also notifies residents when there is a delay or change in the curbside collection schedule and offers helpful tips on how to responsibly dispose of waste. Textile program notifications are also integrated into the app, as the textile collection dates differ from regular curbside collection.

Background

During the city’s 2017-2018 curbside collection audit, just over three per cent of textile material was found in either the recycling or waste carts in curbside collection alone. This equates to over 200 tonnes of material that could have potentially been diverted from the annual waste stream and landfill.

“In order to reduce waste sent to landfill, the city is continuously looking to expand all diversion programs,” said Mayor George Pirie. “This partnership is wonderful for everyone involved, directly and indirectly. Not only is it great for our community, it is great for our planet.”

July 15, 2020 - The health and well-being of Canadians are the top priorities of the governments of Canada and Ontario. But the COVID-19 pandemic has affected more than Canadians’ personal health. It is having a profound effect on the economy.

That is why governments have been taking decisive action to support families, businesses and communities, and continue to look ahead to see what more can be done.

Strategic investments in modern public transit infrastructure support a healthy environment and play a key role in ensuring Ontarians can get to work and essential services on time, then safely back home at the end of the day.

Today, Terry Sheehan, Member of Parliament for Sault Ste. Marie, on behalf of the Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities; Dave Smith, Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Indigenous Affairs and the Minister of Energy, Northern Development and Mines and Member of Provincial Parliament for Peterborough-Kawartha on behalf of the Honourable Laurie Scott, Ontario’s Minister of Infrastructure; and his Worship George Pirie, Mayor of Timmins, announced funding for three public transit projects in Timmins.

The purchase of a new conventional bus and the replacement of standard buses with two paratransit vehicles will improve the transit system’s accessibility, upgrade the system’s capacity, and enhance the overall quality for public transit riders.

In addition, renovations to Timmins’ terminal transit station will modernize the facility and will include fully accessible washrooms. These upgrades will ensure a reliable, barrier-free space for all public transit users.

By upgrading and expanding public transit systems in the city and connecting residents to the essential services they require, residents can get around their communities safely while also protecting the environment.

The Government of Canada is investing over $960,000 in these projects through the Public Transit Infrastructure Stream (PTIS) of the Investing in Canada infrastructure plan. The Government of Ontario is providing more than $806,000 to the projects, while the municipality is contributing more than $645,000.

Quotes

“Investing in integrated and accessible public transit systems is vital for building more inclusive communities. The projects announced today will improve public transit services for all Timmins residents, allowing them to get where they need to go safely and with ease. We are committed to working with our partners to build stronger, more sustainable infrastructure that will serve communities now and far into the future.” - Terry Sheehan, Member of Parliament for Sault Ste. Marie, on behalf of the Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities

“I am incredibly proud to represent Minister Scott and Minister Rickford today to acknowledge the Province’s collaboration with our federal and municipal partners to announce this important investment in public transit. Today’s announcement will significantly improve the public transit experience in Timmins by providing safe, reliable, and most importantly, accessible transportation.” - Dave Smith, Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Indigenous Affairs and the Minister of Energy, Northern Development and Mines and Member of Provincial Parliament for Peterborough-Kawartha on behalf of the Honourable Laurie Scott, Ontario’s Minister of Infrastructure

“We are extremely pleased with, and grateful for this funding announcement. While the total contribution of $968,000 is allocated to three distinct projects, the common link is creating greater accessibility to those utilizing Timmins Transit. The new buses we’ll be able to add to our fleet will provide greater accessibility for all riders, and the terminal renovations will also improve the quality and accessibility of the transit system.” - His Worship George Pirie, Mayor of Timmins

July 8, 2020 - The City of Timmins has conducted all the required water samples in the past 48 hours. The results are deemed satisfactory by the City of Timmins and the Porcupine Health Unit, and all the necessary requirements have been met to lift the Boil Water Advisory issued on Monday.

Background
“What happened was that we had a chemical process upset that occurred yesterday (Sunday),” explained Manager of Environmental Services & Public Utilities Scott Tam. “As Timmins Water Filtration Plant staff were getting the process back online, we were utilizing the water storages in our reservoirs. During water production and the use of the reservoirs, water pressure was reduced, and therefore, it was decided to implement a Boil Water Advisory as a precaution to limit the potential risk to the drinking water system.”

Tam said the Schumacher area was the most impacted in terms of pressure, but the advisory was extended to Porcupine and South Porcupine as an additional precaution.

Water production and pressures were restored earlier this week, but the Boil Water Advisory remained in effect until the City obtained drinking water results in two consecutive sets of samples taken 24 to 48 hours apart, or as otherwise directed by the medical officer of health.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

July 6, 2020 - Further to the advisory issued by the Public Health Unit this morning, the City of Timmins is reminding residents of a Boil Water Advisory currently in effect.

The advisory affects residents of Schumacher, those in the area east of Highway 655 along Algonquin Boulevard, Vipond Road, and Gold Mine Road. Residents affected are required to bring water to a rolling boil for at least one minute prior to use or use bottles water.

“What happened was that we had a chemical process upset that occurred yesterday,” explained Manager of Environmental Services & Public Utilities Scott Tam. “As Timmins Water Filtration Plant staff were getting the process back online, we were utilizing the water storages in our reservoirs. During water production and the use of the reservoirs, water pressure was reduced, and therefore, it was decided to implement a Boil Water Advisory as a precaution to limit the potential risk to the drinking water system.”

June 23, 2020 - Effective Friday, June 26, 2020, the Timmins Transit Terminal will be open to the public subject to ongoing safety precautions including self-screening, physical distancing and hand sanitizing. Timmins Transit will also be reinstating the collection of fares and will be transitioning from the current enhanced Sunday service level to a Saturday service level beginning Sunday, June 28, 2020. This affects both conventional and Handy Transit services.

This means conventional buses will leave the main terminal at 6:30am with the last bus departing the main terminal for the east end route (901 E) at 10:30pm. This service will be provided seven days a week and reflects the gradual and safe reopening of services to our customers.

“This change in service level is expected to better serve our ridership as the Province continues with its staged reopening plan,” stated Director of Community & Development Services Mark Jensen.

“Transit will be accepting debit and credit cards only to purchase passes and tickets,” added Transit Operations Supervisor Ash Patel. “Cash will only be accepted on buses for single trip payment with the exact fare required, to avoid the potential transfer of COVID-19. No change will be provided.”

The public is once again reminded that Transit should be used for essential travel only, and physical distancing of two meters (or six feet) should be respected at all times. Buses will continue to have seating cordoned off to ensure that this occurs. Customers are also reminded to now enter buses through the front doors and to use provided hand sanitizer. Passengers that are not feeling well and exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19 should not board any bus and are advised by Public Health to self-isolate.
