Communities within
the Sudbury District

There have been many communities with the Sudbury area over the past hundred years. Many of these were early railway, lumber or mining 'camps', of which no trace remains today. The first travellers through this district would have been those involved with the fur trade - they came up through the Ottawa - Mattawa Rivers, to Lake Nipissing, down the French River and over to the Great Lakes. The next migration into the area followed the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway with its accompanying lumber camps. A railway worker discovered an outcropping of nickel ore; sealing the prosperity of the City of Sudbury, growing up around the northern shore of Ramsey Lake which the CPR skirted on the east side. Sudbury was first a railway and lumbering town. Before the advent of the lumbering industry and the mining communities the area was covered with massive white pine.
