Timmins-Porcupine Station Transit and Rail Project Assessment Process

Notice of Public Information Centre

Ontario Northland is an agency of the Province of Ontario responsible for providing efficient, safe, and reliable transportation services in Northern Ontario. Ontario Northland is reinstating passenger rail service between Toronto (Union Station) and Northeastern Ontario (Timmins), which includes a new station in the City of Timmins. The passenger train service, also known as the Northlander, will fundamentally shift how people move across the province, creating a more connected, integrated transportation network.

The Project

A new Timmins-Porcupine Station will include a train platform, a station building, outdoor parking, a pedestrian walkway, bus bays, a taxi stand, a designated passenger pick-up and drop-off area, and a municipal bus stop. The planned footprint of the new station will also protect land that may be required for future construction of a bus storage and maintenance facility. The station is situated along the existing rail corridor, within the City of Timmins, just west of Bob’s Lake between Matheson Station and Cochrane Station. In accordance with the requirements of Ontario Regulation 231/08 (made under the Environmental Assessment Act), Ontario Northland is following the Transit and Rail Project Assessment Process (TRPAP) for the proposed new Timmins Station.

We invite you to connect with us at a tradeshow event to learn more about the project and status of the engineering designs and environmental studies being undertaken.
