A one-hour flight from Toronto, Timmins is also easily accessible from Quebec and the northeastern US. Traditionally a mining community, Timmins allows access to past and present mines as well as acres of forest in the surrounding area, including a wildlife preserve and over 500 lakes and streams. The area's Northern location makes for a long winter season, ideal for filming in snowy conditions. This film-friendly community is eager to help your production.
