Picture Yourself Here: An Economic Snapshot of Temiskaming Shores
November 5, 2020 | Mercedes Labelle
The City of Temiskaming Shores has prospects for future growth and economic prosperity based on the economic potential of the Indigenous population, the city’s strategic location for transportation and tourism, and its low cost of living. Economic development indicators allude to growing business and employment opportunities – specifically in management, health, and natural resource-related occupations; transportation is an already prevalent and established industry. Current trends, alongside measures already undertaken by the city – and combined with relatively low housing costs and the presence of multiple post-secondary institutions – indicate there are resources and opportunities in place for continued economic development in Temiskaming Shores.
