Statement from the Mayor - September 22, 2022 

We know that residents are concerned about people living along Algonquin Blvd. E. at the underpass and want to assure you that we are also concerned.

We have worked with Timmins Police Service on clean-up and waste collection and will continue to provide support from both our Public Works and By-law Departments. Please understand that this is both a short-term and temporary solution that solves the immediate problem. The City is also committed to helping find a long-term solution so that our most vulnerable are supported, while the area is kept accessible and safe for residents.

We continue to work with public service agencies who are providing consistent outreach, often every day, to help address the human element. Ultimately, we are talking about people who are experiencing homelessness with possible mental health and addiction concerns. A level of sensitivity is required to any proposed solution.

We will continue to listen to your feedback and provide updates as they are available.


Mayor Kristin Murray
