Note on the Plan:

Sweeping Operations will take several weeks to complete. There is a lot of sand to pick up every year, so we ask residents to remain patient. Weather conditions and mechanical issues play a major role in how quickly Public Works can complete the sweeping operations. Heavy rain and subzero temperatures will halt operations.

Posted No Parking Signs Advising Spring Maintenance:

Public Works would like to remind residents that yellow No Parking Signs will be posted to notify that Spring Maintenance will be taking place for daytime operations. Vehicles not complying with these No Parking signs will be ticketed and towed to allow for Street Sweeping crews to advance.

Priority Sequence for Street Sweeping Operations:

Day Operation:

Street Sweeping is never done in the area where Sanitation is taken place.

High density residential areas (Older Section of City: one-ways, narrow streets);

Low density residential areas

Night Operation:

Highway sections;

High density commercial sections;

Main Arterial Routes

Safety:

A reminder to respect safety signage as the safety of workers is very important.  

We thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

If you were planning to visit a cemetery at this time or on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 9, please remember that there are strict gathering rules to follow.

One-household-plus-one restriction

Current COVID-19 provincial restrictions prohibit “all outdoor social gatherings and organized public events, except for with members of the same household or one other person from outside that household who lives alone or a caregiver for any member of the household.”
The restriction also applies to cemeteries.

Being private property, cemeteries have the right to control access and may limit numbers even further. The Bereavement Authority of Ontario (BAO) will not, and cannot, order cemeteries to stay open to the public.

Funerals at cemeteries

For funeral services at the graveside, there can be no more than 10 people, not counting funeral or cemetery staff. The maximum of 10 attendees only applies to funeral services. All other cemetery gatherings must follow the one-household-plus-one restriction.

Mask wearing and physical distancing of two meters between people must be practiced at all times by everyone in the cemetery during funeral services.
Thank you for your cooperation

For further information, contact the cemetery office at 705-360-2615.

This is Emergency Preparedness Week and the City of Timmins and the Timmins Fire Department want to remind you that being prepared in the event of an emergency starts now. Protect yourself, your family, and even your community by knowing the risks, making an emergency plan, and building an emergency kit.

Emergency Preparedness Week is a national awareness campaign that has been held annually for the last 25 years. All Canadians are encouraged to consider the hazards that can affect our daily lives. They can range from power outages to floods and fires. Public Safety Canada recommends having a family emergency plan and an emergency kit prepared that would allow you to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours.

The Government of Canada offers free resources to help you create an emergency plan online (https://www.getprepared.gc.ca/cnt/plns/plan/mrgnc-pln-en.aspx). You will want to consider safe exits from your home and neighborhood; plan meeting places to reunite with family or friends; identify emergency contacts and numbers; and, list the location of fire extinguishers, water and gas valves in your home. You can print your emergency plan once complete and include a copy in your emergency kit.

Your emergency kit is most effective if it is organized, easy to find, and fully portable. Use backpacks or duffel bags and keep it somewhere accessible and make sure all members of your household know where to find it. We’ve created an emergency kit checklist that you can download and print.

For more information on how to get and stay prepared visit:

As we head towards warmer weather, the City of Timmins is reminding residents of our external water usage by-laws that help us manage, maintain, and regulate the waterworks supply system for the City of Timmins.

Please be aware and follow By-law #1974-253 and amended By-law #2013-7419, which state:

During the months of May, June, July and August, the external use of water is permitted:

o On even calendar dates at only those municipal addresses ending with the numbers 0,2,4,6, and 8;
o On odd calendar dates at only those municipal addresses ending with the numbers 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9.

External use of water for recreational purposes only (i.e. small pools or children’s water sprinklers) is permitted for all municipal addresses on all calendar dates. Recreational use requires the presence of children, teenagers or adults, otherwise penalties as set out in Clause 40 of By-law #1974-253 will apply.

During an emergency period when it appears likely that the demand for the consumption of water will reduce the water pressure below what is required for safety or supply of water, the Mayor or Acting Mayor of The Corporation of the City of Timmins can issue a temporary proclamation regulating the use of the water. Any external use of water during an emergency period will require a permit from the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) for the City of Timmins.

Residents who require external water usage outside of their allowable schedule (i.e. for newly installed sod or seed), will require a permit available through Service Timmins.

For questions, please call Service Timmins at 705-264-1331.

Statistic Canada’s 2021 Census is now underway! Every five years, Canadians get the opportunity to help define our diverse population and the communities we live in.

Due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, the Census Program has been adapted to make sure you can participate in the safest and most secure way possible. You can fill out your census questionnaire online today without pre-registration or lengthy downloads.

Why is completing the census important? Information collected is used by the City of Timmins in a variety of ways. It informs public policy and the planning of schools, hospitals, child care centres, and family services. Municipal programs like public transportation, sustainable development, and environmental goals are influenced by census data. Your answers help reflect how Timmins is changing.

Timmins Economic Development Corporation (TEDC) uses the census to track socioeconomic trends in order to help local business and our economy grow.

“The TEDC uses Census information to attract businesses to our community, to help local firms with market research and assist us when completing government funding applications. All these purposes are beneficial for Timmins and therefore we encourage everyone to complete the Census forms when they come out,” says Fred Gibbons, Chair of Timmins Economic Development Corporation.

You can complete the questionnaire today online at https://census.gc.ca/index-eng.htm. For more information, call the Census Help Line toll-free at: 1-855-340-2021.

You are included in the census if you are a Canadian citizen by birth or naturalization, a landed immigrant, or a non-permanent resident (a person with a work or student visa, or who has claimed refugee status).

Make sure you’re counted! Fill out your census questionnaire today.
