Temiskaming Shores

Temiskaming Shores is a city in Northern Ontario.

The city of Temiskaming Shores encompasses the towns of Dymond, Haileybury, and New Liskeard. Although a city in name, it is actually quite small (population just over 10,000.) It is, however, the biggest community in the region, with North Bay, Timmins, and Rouyn-Noranda being the closest cities, all well over 100 km away.

Get in

Highway 65 runs west from the Quebec border, through Dymond and on towards Elk Lake and Matachewan. Most will come in through Highway 11 (Trans-Canada), from the south (North Bay) or north (Timmins, Cochrane.)

Get around

Haileybury and New Liskeard are roughly 8 km apart, so a motor vehicle is key. The Tri-Town Transit bus service connects the two, hourly on weekdays, every 2 hours Saturdays, and no service Sundays and holidays. The transit buses, unlike any other, are repainted schoolbuses. This makes for a *very* rough, unenjoyable ride. $2.50 fare. The long distance between destinations makes taxis an expensive alternative.




Marco's Place - downtown New Liskeard, killer poutines.

R.U. Hungries - Timiskaming Square, good & cheap take-out pizzas, pepperettes, jerky, and cheese.


King George Tavern - this is the spot for the younger crowd, can be quite busy Fridays/Saturdays.

Sam's Place - typically older crowd, karaoke Wednesdays.

Rooster's - popular on Thursday nights for 'Wing Night'



Rogers cell coverage is *very* sketchy, especially in Haileybury. Telus and Bell/NorthernTel are mostly reliable.

Go next

Ontario Northland buses run twice daily northbound and southbound. Connections to Eastern and Northwestern Ontario happen in North Bay. There is also a train service, northbound towards Cochrane or southbound to Toronto.
