People who were born and brought up in Timmins say it’s the best place, the problem is that these people have never left Timmins and know no better., they have not lived in a nice place. It is the most drab town, no shopping , no updated hotels or motels, restaurants are terrible. If you want to shop you have to go to Sudbury or North Bay. There are drugged out people wandering the streets day and night. If you need any specialist type of health needs, surgery, or cancer treatments, you have to drive yourself to Sudbury. The property taxes are outrageous, the roads are in the worst shape in Ontario. The only thing to do is send your kids into hockey related sports. It is not any wonder why the folks there turn to crime, drugs, alcoholism as this is the kind of life they live, there is nothing to do. It is time for the representatives running this city to make changes.

I lived here for 19 years now and I've seen 3 drug deals my hole life I've walked the streets at night for hours and during the day never had a problem never got approached I even walk in the alley ways and everyone minds there business if u look for trouble you will find it but in any city that's how it works. It's a great place to grow up great hockey driven small minning town with great trails and amazing love for the outdoors timmins is a beautiful active ghost towns in the world

Its a heart break town....daddy was a miner...ypu either work as a miner or the wood plant or healthcare ...or your stuck in retail. This town has non culture and is racist. Drugs run the town. No one walls downtown not even during the day. Hell I have to take my mother to the bank.

I was born in Timmins & lived in the Italian section , it was a wonderful place to grow up in, practically knew everyone, & if you powered out of line your parents knew about it, but most of us as children
we’re very obedient, every school & there was a lot of them French & English , & every school had an outdoor skating rink with lights at night, what fun we had
I’m still in touch with many grownups now who live in Toronto, Barrie, St Catherine, we used used to have Timmins reunions but no more

I never feel safe in this town as a white person talking. I'm so sorry for people of colour who live here. It is probably horrible for you. I've walked the streets at night between the times of 11 pm-6 am with a friend, and an old man was following us with a crowbar in his hand. I will be living in this town as soon as I can, and I will never come back and raise my children here. I hope you have fun here yall peace out!

The people who answered the surveys for this country are fools who have seen nothing and are trying to trick you. This city ranked the most dangerous city in Ontario in Maclean's list of most dangerous cities in Canada and tenth in all of Canada.
