Statement from Mayor Michelle Boileau on passing of former Mayor Victor M. “Vic” Power 
On behalf of City Council and municipal staff, I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to family and friends on the passing of former Timmins’ Mayor Victor M. Power on Saturday, February 3, 2024.

Mr. Power was a pillar of the community, an inspiration to many who aspire to a career in public office. He led with conviction and understood the power of decision and opportunity.

His time as Mayor was marked by the efforts he made on multiple boards and organizations, including the Federation of Northern Ontario Municipalities and the Association of Municipalities of Ontario. As Councillor, he was instrumental in the construction of the Archie Dillon Sportsplex. He was a leader outside of Council Chambers, championing organizations like the Porcupine United Way and serving on the Timmins Police Services Board. He concerned himself with the prosperity of the community, and the sustainability of a municipal government with a clear vision of Timmins as thriving and distinctly northern.

He was also humble and took pride in highlighting the work of his colleagues, municipal staff, and community members. I was honoured to have him attend the inaugural meeting of council in November 2022, and felt the significance of his legacy as I took my oath of office. His genuine optimism and love for Timmins will continue to inspire. We remain forever in his debt for the contributions he made to the community we call home.

City of Timmins’ flags have been lowered to half-mast in Mr. Power’s honour, and we invite the public to pay their respects through a Book of Condolence at City Hall beginning Wednesday, February 7 at 8:30 a.m.
