City of Timmins Hosts Evacuees from Kashechewan 
The City of Timmins will host approximately 200 evacuees from Kashechewan First Nation, following evacuation of the First Nations community due to flooding on the Albany River. Flights began arriving Sunday, May 1 and will continue through Monday.

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 Red Cross before being transported to the Ramada Inn for temporary lodging.

The City of Timmins is working with the Provincial Emergency Response Organization (PEOC) and Indigenous Service Canada (ISC), 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 watch for increased pedestrian traffic.
