Getting looped around the lake

Monday, May 05, 2014   by: Jeff Turl

North Bay has joined with communities and organizations from Ontario and Quebec to promote tourism in the region surrounding Lake Temiskaming.

A brochure showcases a tourism circuit that takes visitors on a trip looping the lake where they can discover the region’s Anglophone, Francophone and Algonquin cultures.

“The first edition of the Lake Temiskaming Tour brochure was a resounding success. We

piqued the interest of residents and tourists alike by encouraging them to explore both

sides of Lake Temiskaming,” said James Franks, Economic Development Officer for the

City of Temiskaming Shores.

In this second edition, the content of the brochure has been expanded to include a

greater number and variety of tourism sites, attractions and events. Twice as many

copies have been printed and 75,000 brochures will be mailed to the local population and

distributed to tourism information offices in Ontario and Quebec.

“This cooperation between communities on both sides of Lake Temiskaming not only

allows us to pool together our resources, but also gives us the opportunity to work

together and develop a true sense of camaraderie. The door is open for future

collaborative initiatives in other business sectors,” explains Simon Laquerre, Outdoor

Tourism Advisor for the Société de développement du Témiscamingue.
