City Council Sets Strategic Priorities for Term of Office 

Timmins City Council has adopted the City of Timmins Council Priorities for 2023-2026, which will guide Council decision-making and future planning over the current electoral term.

Setting strategic priorities for Council not only improves accountability and transparency, it will allow Council to better meet the opportunities and challenges facing the community.

City Council has identified seven strategic priorities:

  • Housing
  • Infrastructure
  • Safety
  • Recreation and Tourism
  • Economy
  • Environment
  • Core Services

All seven priorities are aligned to meet the City’s current needs and foster a future of prosperity and growth for Timmins.

“Timmins is fortunate that our provincial and federal partners are making an effort to understand the realities of Northern Ontario,” says Mayor Michelle Boileau. “We are seeing an increase in regional funding for Long Term Care and upstream homelessness prevention programs. We are witnessing a revitalization of Timmins transportation network with support for the Connecting Link and the reinstatement of passenger rail service in Timmins. Our strategic priorities will help council apply each opportunity to Timmins’ unique set of challenges and concerns.”

Now that Council has set their priorities, Mayor Boileau will begin to engage with the City’s partners and stakeholder organizations to discuss how Council’s priorities can align with their individual vision and goals.

With Council approval, the City of Timmins Council Priorities document will now be translated into French and be made available to the public on the City’s corporate website at
