In an effort to convey the vital role industry plays in Timmins’ economy, the Timmins Chamber of Commerce has arranged a variety of summer tours. Included in the effort are free, weekly expeditions to Tembec’s and Domtar’s sawmill plants.
"The tours are very well attended," confirmed Timmins Chamber of Commerce Tourism Information Counselor J.P. Rains. "We get a lot of tourists who want to learn about our town and to see how a sawmill works. We also get people from town which is great because it gives them a chance to learn about how our main industries not only affect our economy, but that they can serve as tourist attractions as well."
Tours of Tembec’s sawmill plant run every Friday afternoon. However, evaluations and renovations have temporarily suspended the event until next week. The Domtar tours run every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Participants in both tours will receive demonstrations on the processing of a log to the final product sold to lumber yards.
