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 covid-19

July 15, 2021
Temagami Update #65 on COVID-19

Reopening Ontario, will be moving to Step 3 of the Roadmap on July 16, 2021 at 12:01 a.m.
Learn about the Roadmap to Reopen, the province’s three-step plan to safety and gradually lift public health measures based on the ongoing progress of the provicewide vaccination rates and improvements of key public health and health care indicators at https://www.ontario.ca/page/reopening-ontario With Step 3 reopening, everyone needs to remain vigilant with public health measures, including physical distancing, hand sanitizing and masking.

The province will remain in Step 3 for at least 21 days and until 80% of the eligible population aged 12 and over has received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and 75% have received their second, with no public health unit having less than 70% of their eligible population aged 12 and over fully vaccinated. Other key public health and health care indicators must also continue to remain stable. Upon meeting these thresholds, the vast majority of public health and workplace safety measures will be lifted. Currently, all public health and workplace safety measures remain in place. For more info visit Covid-19 Public Health Measures and Advice at: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/zones-and-restrictions

We have had fantastic vaccination rates in Timiskaming (with the exception of the 12-29 age group). Timiskaming Health Unit urges all youth age 12 years and older to get the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible. Although younger people who get COVID-19 often have milder symptoms, some children could have more severe disease and may be hospitalized. Being vaccinated also helps prevent the virus from spreading to family and friends and to people more likely to get very sick from COVID-19. The more people who are vaccinated, the sooner kids can get back to being kids.

Youth aged 12 to 17 are encouraged to be fully immunized no later than August 22nd, 2021. Youth should get their first dose of the vaccine by early July to be able to receive their second dose in mid-August. This ensures that they can build immunity before their return to school, as it takes two weeks for a dose of the vaccine to take full effect.

All vaccination clinics run by the Timiskaming Health Unit going forward will be walk-in only (no appointments necessary) please visit https://www.timiskaminghu.com/90513/COVID-19-Vaccine#CurrentClinics for dates and times.
