Time for Timmins: TEDC’s newest marketing initiative aims to attract new residents

TIMMINS, ON – There are countless reasons why Timmins, ON is a great place to live, learn, work and play, but we’ve highlighted the top 10 on our new website: MovetoTimmins.ca.

MovetoTimmins.ca aims to attract young professionals and families from the region and throughout the province. If you’re looking for work, look here! Right now, Timmins has opportunities in mining, forestry, retail, social services and administration, health and many other industries and sectors. A lower cost of living and more disposable income means getting ahead faster and enjoying yourself along the way. Housing costs are lower here than most cities in the province of Ontario which means your cost of living is reduced.

Our tagline “Time for Timmins”, to be shared in our upcoming marketing plan, signifies to our audience that living in Timmins gives you more time to spend with family and friends. We’re capitalizing on our plentiful recreational features including a downhill ski resort, several golf courses, a cross-country skiing facility, 55km of trails and multiple provincial parks and campgrounds within an hour of the city centre.

“It’s our aim that this website and the marketing plan will help to attract young professionals who are either struggling to tap into the housing market or advance in their careers,” said Dr. Audrey Penner, Chair of the TEDC Board of Directors.

“We have experienced an increase in newcomers settling in Timmins in recent years, and as a result of the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot, we’ve had great success in filling labour gaps,” said Christy Marinig, CEO at the TEDC. “Our effort to promote the city as a great location to find meaningful employment, tap into the housing marketing and establish a family has never been more timely,” she added.

The new site was launched in January 2022, and a forthcoming marketing plan will promote the city to neighbourhing communities and the province.
