Target Industries

The Timmins Economic Development Corporation (TEDC) wants you to invest in opportunity. 

Our team has identified and compiled key information on the following sectors that are being actively targeted due to Timmins’ unique competitive advantages. 

Mining Supply and Services

Timmins lies at the heart of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, which contains some of the world’s largest deposits of gold, silver, copper and zinc. In fact, the Timmins region is known today as one of the richest gold districts in the world.

Data Centres

Located in Northern Ontario, the City of Timmins is an ideal and cost-competitive location for data centres due to the naturally cool climate, low risk of natural disasters, and availability of developable industrial lands.

Mining Exploration

Throughout its history, Timmins has been known globally as one of the richest mineral producing areas in the world.   The community lies at the heart of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, which contains some of the world’s largest deposits of gold, silver, copper and zinc.

Filming

Storytelling is a tradition as old as mankind. From the times when our ancestors regaled each other around the fire with ancient myth, to our modern love affair with film and TV.

Agriculture

Agriculture in the North is a major sector poised for growth and it will be driven by an increased demand for food, higher heat units to make growing crops more economically viable, lower farm land prices in comparison to southern Ontario, improved transportation routes and niche market opportunities.
