A Welcoming Message from Dave Landers, Chief Administrative Officer

Dear Residents & Visitors:

Dave Landers, CAO Welcome to the City of Timmins website, our window to City Hall and the services we provide. Our intention is to demonstrate transparency and accountability in municipal activities and decision making. This website will help to share information regularly in a manner that is easy to access.

We encourage you to visit us often, as new information and events are added on a regular basis. By subscribing to automatic City updates you will receive the latest information directly to your inbox

As the Chief Administrative Officer, I am responsible for providing guidance and information to Council, and to lead the municipal administration in meeting the City’s fiscal, organizational and service objectives.

The City’s direction, as outlined in the Timmins 2020 Strategic Plan, has created a number of great initiatives. In recent years, the Service Delivery and Operational Review has helped prioritize resources for key municipal issues. A new focus on Continuous Improvement has been instituted with a vision that sees the City of Timmins as a highly communicative, citizen-oriented delivery system that is modern, effective and efficient.

At the City of Timmins, we have taken great strides in modernizing our service delivery with a renewed website and the establishment of Service Timmins – a one-window approach to a centralized customer service portal that receives public inquiries and complaints to ensure quick resolution of issues. Recently, we have also launched the Transit Tracker for the convenience of transit patrons who want to know where the bus may be along its route and the Recyclepedia App to provide information on waste management and recycling.
