Description From Owner:

  • Pop. 45,845. City in Cochrane Dist. on the Mattagami R. and Hwys 101 & 655, 140 km. NW of Kirkland Lake.
  • Although it was not founded until 1910, Timmins claims to be the largest city in Canada. That's because in 1973 it amalgamated with a number of nearby towns and villages and wound up being 3,000 square km. (1,158 square mi.) in area.
  • Nicknamed 'The City With the Heart of Gold,' Timmins was named after brothers Noah and Henry Timmins, whose syndicate developed a gold mine staked in 1911 by Benny Hollinger.
  • The Hollinger Mine yielded $10 million in gold annually -- 20 million ounces (625 tons, 567 tonnes) over its lifetime -- and was for years second in production only to South Africa's Rand Mine.
  • Timmins also has one of Canada's deepest mines, the McIntyre Mine, which is 7,400 feet (2,255.5 m) deep. In 1934, Roy Herbert Thomson bought the weekly Timmins Press and turned it into a daily newspaper.
  • By the mid-1960s he owned 124 newspapers in eight countries and was made Baron Thomson of Fleet.
  • A Short History of Shania Twain
  • She was born Eilleen Regina Edwards in Windsor in 1965. Her parents divorced when she was two and her mother moved her and her sister Jill, to Timmins where she married Jerry Twain, an Ojibwa.
  • There was often a shortage of food and the young Eilleen helped support the family from the age of eight, singing in local clubs and bars.
  • She wrote her first songs at age 10. In the 1880s she worked on her father's reforestation business, carrying heavy loads of trees and walking great distances.
  • At age 13 she performed on the Tommy Hunter Show. Her third album, Come on Over is the best-selling album of all time by a female musician and the best-selling album in the history of country music.
  • She has received five Grammy awards, 27 BMI Songwriter awards and had sold more than 65 million albums worldwide as of 2009.
