Black River-Matheson

Rich in gold and land, offering the people, the infrastructure and the setting, the Township of Black River-Matheson is open for your business.

Mining gold, support
Black River - Matheson connects three of Ontario's most productive gold mining areas. Five of its mines yield gold, and exploration for other minerals is underway. Power from high-voltage transmission lines running across the Township and central locations suited to businesses serving the mining industry offer support.

Location, transportationBlack River - Matheson lies between Northern Ontario's larger centres. Here, the Trans-Canada Highway intersects Highway 101, which links Québec with Timmins. Ontario Northland offers freight and passenger rail service. Three airports are within an hour's drive.

People, infrastructure
In addition to a skilled, trades-trained workforce, the Township offers reasonable tax rates, a well-staffed and equipped hospital, extremely low housing costs, and a setting that has been justly described as an outdoor lover's paradise.

And farmland too

Black River - Matheson is home to tens of thousands of acres in the great clay belt-fertile land, much of it pesticide and herbicide free, that is well served by rural roads and the long growing days of our summers.

Community Economic Development Strategic Plan

Council has adopted a new Community Economic Development Strategic Plan.  For details, please see the Economic Development section on the website. 

Together as a community we now have an excellent opportunity to plan and decide our future.  Along with my fellow Councillors, we urge everyone to get involved in this exciting process.
