Mayor’s Message

Welcome to Manitouwadge, the “Friendly Community” located on Highway 614, 50 km off of Highway 17. Manitouwadge is situated atop the Canadian Shield and surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of the boreal forest.

Manitouwadge is a vibrant community with many modern facilities such as a challenging 9-hole golf course, newer high school and hospital, curling, hockey, and an excellent downhill skiing facility. Our “step out your door” natural facilities provide the best fishing, canoeing, hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, snowmobile/ATV trails in this area. Our local businesses and service providers are always willing to meet your needs, and their hospitality and customer service is second to none.

Mining was the primary reason our town was founded and it remains deeply rooted in our local history and economy. The forest industry is also one of the most valuable resources we have.

In short, whether you are seeking a wilderness adventure, a new place to call home or a relaxing stay in a tranquil environment, there is something for everyone in Manitouwadge.

On behalf of Council, welcome to Manitouwadge!

Mayor John MacEachern
