Although we are considered to be “Northern Ontario” geographically we are more in the middle of the province. About two hours east of Lake Huron, and a quick 3-4 hour drive to the Greater Toronto Area, Sudbury has established itself as a jump-off point to the North, while being easily in reach to all that Southern Ontario has to offer.
While Sudbury boasts all the fantastic “big-city” amenities like film & theatre, foodie approved restaurants, shopping, and sports, it’s still not so big that you don’t know your neighbours. With a population hovering around 170,000 spread over a massive 3200 km², it really is the best of both worlds.
When a meteor carved out the Sudbury basin over 1.8 billion years ago, it left behind a thriving mining industry that still is the core of our city today. But over the years we have evolved to include a first-class health care facility which includes learning and research initiatives, four highly regarded post-secondary and graduate institutions, a thriving retail sector, and tons of opportunity.
From the outdoorsy Lively area, to the character homes of the Hospital Area, to the urban hustle of Uptown, there is literally a community for every lifestyle. Keep scrolling to learn about each of our unique communities, and see which one fits you best.
