Temagami, the gateway to Ontario’s wilderness region as one travels north along Highway #11, is the reality that fuels the popular perception of Canada's great northland. Temagami has old growth pine forests, smooth blue waters, brilliantly white powder snow, and bountiful fish and wildlife. Over the centuries, people have been drawn to the area as if by a magnet.

Temagami is truly an adventurer's mecca. This area is legendary for its canoeing, back country hiking, camping, fishing, and snowmobiling. Visitors who spend time in the community can challenge themselves with climbing the fire tower, tour the restored historic train station, enjoy lunch at one of the popular restaurants, visit a boutique or outfitter along the way, or just take it easy with a picnic at the community waterfront.

Temagami is a pleasant town where friendly faces eagerly welcome you.

Official Plan Review FIRESMARTStay Safecovid-19

April 29, 2021
Temagami Update #61 on COVID-19

HAVE YOU HAD YOUR COVID VACCINATION YET?

Vaccines are safe and effective
The vaccine cannot give you COVID-19

Like every vaccine, there may be possible side effects
The most common side effects are pain at the injection site, fatigue and a headache
Other common side effects can include: fever, chills, muscle pain and joint pain
These side effects usually occur within 1-2 days after vaccination and go away within 1-3 days

Continue to protect yourself and others
Until vaccines are widely available, it is important to continue to protect yourself and those around from COVID-19
Keep practicing protective measures such washing your hands, physical distancing, covering your mouth when you cough, wearing a mask and following local public health guidance

In the Timiskaming District, Moderna has been the vaccine given at COVID vaccination clinics to- date, but Pfizer will be coming soon as well. Astrazeneca is available from select pharmacies and primary care offices and is currently recommended for those individuals 40 years of age and older.

The provincial restrictions and regulations are continually changing in an attempt to mitigate the risks to human health. To ensure that you are receiving the most up to date information on these new measures, please visit the links below:
