Northern Ontario, Canada

Story by Katie Filion
Selling fresh, seasonal farm products direct to consumers is not new to the Algoma region, but what breaks new ground at Mill Market is a convenient, indoor site where consumers and local producers can build relationships in a central community gathering space. Located at 35 Canal Drive across from the historic Sault Canal, Mill Market aims to be this gathering place, where locals and tourists alike can find farm-fresh food, culinary treats and beautiful handicrafts. Mill Market will be home to farmer, food, and craft vendors, and social programming, including a community garden. "The market aims to be a place to celebrate Algoma District," explained Justus Veldman of Riversedge Developments and Mill Square Inc. "Mill Market will be a place…
Entomica: NEW Insectarium And Mill Market Opening Events!
Mill Market, Sault Ste. Marie's newest addition to agriculture and set to open in a week's time – is so much more than a Farmers Market. The site contains a soft launch of all the wonderful attractions soon to come to Mill Square in the form of Destination North. Destination North is a not-for-profit project that artfully balances the needs of a tourism venue and a downtown core revitalization by cultivating job-creating social enterprise components. Mill Market's prime location - on the Waterfront Hub Trail, sharing the road to the Historic Canal and Whitefish Island, neighboring The Casino and Station Mall, and under the gaze of the International Bridge – make it an exciting attraction to visitors and Sauites, alike.…

Highway 64 Riding
It's no secret that I love riding in Northern Ontario. It's much more than a job for me, it's almost a spiritual connection – the open spaces, the miles of forests, lakes and rivers, the small towns and the big cities of Timmins, Sudbury, New Liskeard and North Bay (the official boundary line that signifies the start of the Northeastern part of Ontario) At only three and a half hours from Toronto, it's also a place that I ride frequently enough to know where all the good roads are, and I'll go out of my way time and again to make sure I get them in each season. While the region is so vast, you'll have no trouble finding more…
The Abitibi Canyon Loop Tour: A 400 Series Highway Paved with Fresh Powder
I'm in the fortunate position to have the job all my friends envy. As an action sports photographer, I spend a good chunk of the winter months riding and photographing snowmobiles for Ontario Tourism. We travel to some of the most scenic locations found anywhere in the province (and arguably the country).  After two forgetful seasons, the winter of 2014 struck with a vengeance giving us some of the best snow conditions seen in years. This meant a busy season for me with several projects on the go, all of which were aimed at drawing new snowmobilers to the region. Despite what you might think, I don't actually spend much time riding on these photo shoots. Sure I use the…

Spring Into Walleye: Early Season Tips For Walleye Fishing in Northeastern Ontario
I come bearing good news, on this, the official first day of Spring. Even though winter seems not to have received the message and is reluctant to loosen its icy grip, I can assure you that much warmer weather is right around the corner. And along with these glorious spring days, the walleye season will arrive in all its majesty in Northeastern Ontario. Indeed, while others rely on groundhogs and calendars to mark the end of winter and the beginning of spring, like a lot of anglers who enjoy fishing the walleye-rich waters of the northeastern part of the province, I use the opening day of the walleye season as my benchmark. I find it much more satisfying, rewarding and…
