Live in Temiskaming Shores

Our friendly and inviting community awaits you!


Temiskaming Shores is a vibrant city with endless opportunities nestled in the heart of Northeastern Ontario. Created by the amalgamation of the former Town of New Liskeard, the former Town of Haileybury, and the former Township of Dymond in 2004, the City of Temiskaming Shores is commonly known for its ‘friendly northern attitude’ and its beautiful surrounding environment. The City is home to many scenic landscapes, a rich heritage, educational, social and health care services and a multicultural population.

The City is situated on the border of the Province of Quebec, on the shores of Lake Temiskaming. It offers beautiful lakefront properties just a short distance from the downtown core. Shorter commute times allow more time to enjoy the leisure activities and inviting parkland located in the area.
The residents of Temiskaming Shores are engaged in the active development of the community. The volunteer sector is evident of the hours of support given to host successful annual events and initiatives. We are continuously holding a wide range of special events, activities and festivals that complement the natural attractions of the area, creating a vibrant and active place to live.
The City of Temiskaming Shores is the commercial hub of a large agricultural, forestry and mining region. It is endowed with a rich resource base
– approximately 65.6% of the City’s land base is used for agricultural production and the underlying geology has potential for mineral extraction. Human settlement extends back over 11,000 years in South Temiskaming. Aboriginal settlements, along with the legacy of the mining industry, marine archaeology and many unique architectural forms combine for a rich cultural backdrop to today’s urban and rural landscapes.
Ecological sources of energy and energy conservation will affect land use decisions in the area. New sources are developed under the Green Energy and Green Economy Act or on an individual property basis. The City has an abundance of land that can be developed to accommodate growth in this industry.
