Our Community

TCBC is located Temiskaming District in Northern Ontario, approximately 110 miles north of North Bay.  Although we pride ourselves on being “northerners”, in actual fact we are at about 47 degrees latitude which means that most of Canada and a strip of the western United States are further north than we are. 
This part of the Temiskaming District is largely agricultural with forestry and mining as secondary contributors to the economy.  New Liskeard (now part of the amalgamated city of Temiskaming Shores) is the business centre for the area.  Highlights include a Walmart Supercentre, Rona Building Centre, Home Hardware; Dollarama, Canadian Tire, TSC, Food Basics, Your Independent Grocer, two Tim Horton’s, Pizza Hut, Wendy’s, McDonalds, Harvey’s, Quesada and Subway, as well as a variety of other restaurants.  There are also many small retail establishments, service providers, public transit and public gyms. 
Within Temiskaming Shores and Englehart, there are two modern and well-equipped hospitals; two public health units; numerous dental and optometrist offices; branches of the CMHA; three high schools (one French), numerous elementary schools, College Boréal, and a campus for Northern College.  The public library has branches in New Liskeard, Haileybury and Hudson Township.
Cultural activities include the Temiskaming Art Gallery in Haileybury and the Classic Theatre in Cobalt, which hosts live performances throughout the year.  The Kiwanis Music Festival runs in the spring, with both vocal and instrumental classes for all ages.  In addition, there is strong history of theatre production, with several adult and children’s groups producing live theatre shows annually.  There are museums in Cobalt, Haileybury, New Liskeard and Englehart.  Cobalt is also home to the Heritage Silver Trail, which is a trek through the historic silver camp which became Cobalt.  The Steam and Antique Show is held each July in Earlton, and being a farming area, there are numerous fall fairs held in the region during the month of September.
