-A +A

We are a border town; we are at the beginning of everything. We have always been the industrial capital of Northwest Ontario, and we will strengthen that role. We always were more than a mill town and we will be so much more than a mining town – aided by the lowest cost power and the most affordable industrial land in Ontario. We are the diversified industrial heartbeat of forestry, mining, agriculture, and tourism.

We live in a time of revived spirit of entrepreneurialism. We are hands on….we make things forged from the land, and from determination of spirit.  We are Do It Yourself. We are also more…. We are the Great Canadian Experience. When nature calls, we answer – inspired by blue lakes, rocky shores and the outdoors in all four seasons. We are resilient, tough and proud. We are Fort Frances Strong. We are BOUNDLESS

  • The Town's Vision for the Point Park

    Over the last number of years, the Town has been involved as a defendant in a lawsuit brought by the First Nation Communities of Couchiching, Mitaanjigaming, Naicatchewenin, and Nigigoonsiminikaaning in which they claim ownership of the Point Park.

    The Town appreciates the benefits of working together with the First Nations to resolve this matter outside of the courts, and continues to believe that shared ownership of the Point Park, everyone having an equal share, is the best way forward.
