Welcome to the Timmins Economic Development Corporation (TEDC) homepage. Since its inception, the TEDC has been a driving force in positioning our city as one of the premier communities to invest in.
The City of Timmins is changing – the economic outlook, the competitive global environment in which we live, now presents more opportunity than we have ever seen.
We are a regional city with a catchment population of approximately 150,000, including the coastal communities of James Bay and those of northwestern Quebec.
We are an open city – we celebrate diversity and embrace the thousands of new people who come here each year, to work, live, learn or play.
Our education base underlines all our success with schools ranked among the world’s best and a post secondary base that will open doors to our future success.
We are a City where health care matters with a regional facility that is second to none.
We are a creative city – one which has shaped a unique, irreverent character out of this unique boreal forest setting.
We are an entrepreneurial city – lead by an incredible business sector that has helped to create our story, and is positioned to carry it forward.
We are a safe City, one that boasts the Best of All Worlds ……City lights and small town delights and plenty of outdoor adventures a stone’s throw away..
We are a City with 4 predictable seasons, and plenty of recreational opportunities on our doorstep. We are a City where our quality of life is the envy of many.
We are the City of Timmins. The City with a Heart of Gold!
Our place in this great Province, our unique economic advantages, our strong cultural identity, our skills at cultivating knowledge and innovation – and most of all, the passion and drive of our people – are the things that are going to ensure our future success and possibly yours.
Whatever your plans, I want you to know that the TEDC has an experienced, qualified staff ready to assist you. Relocating here has never been easier, and we look forward to welcoming you among us.
