Timmins Hosting Evacuees from Kashechewan 
The City of Timmins will host approximately 475 evacuees from Kashechewan First Nation, following a precautionary evacuation of the First Nations community due to flooding on the Albany River. Flights will begin arriving early next week.

The City of Timmins has declared a State of Emergency as a preventive measure to allow for the quick mobilization of municipal support and personnel if required. Upon arrival, all evacuees will be processed and situated by the Stronger Together team before being transported to the Ramada Inn and Microtel Inns and Suites for temporary lodging.

The City of Timmins, in conjunction with Stronger Together, is working with the Provincial Emergency Response Organization (PEOC), Indigenous Service Canada (ISC), Kashechewan leadership, along with community partners and service agencies, to ensure residents of Kashechewan have the support and resources they need while in Timmins.

We ask that motorists traveling along Riverside Drive in the vicinity of Ramada Inn and Microtel Inns and Suites watch for increased pedestrian traffic starting next week.
