Terry Fox Trail Closed 

Timmins, ON — Please be advised that sections of the Terry Fox trail ( between Dalton Rd. and Middleton Ave.) are closed due to bear activity. It is expected to be closed for approximately two ( 2) weeks.

If you do encounter a bear:

  Slowly back away while keeping the bear in sight and wait for it to leave.
  If the bear does not leave, throw objects, wave your arms and make noise with a whistle or air horn.
  Prepare to use bear spray.
  If you are near a building or vehicle get inside as a precaution.
  Drop any food you may be carrying and slowly move away.
  If a bear is in a tree, leave it alone. Leave the area. The bear will come down when it feels safe.
