If you dream of living on the shores of a picturesque lake surrounded by miles of countryside in the heart of northern Ontario, you may just belong in Haileybury.
The community – part of a collection of communities known as Temiskaming Shores, is located on the edge of beautiful Lake Temiskaming which stretches out over 100 kilometres!
History of the Region
As the modern century dawned, a boom of sorts was happening in Ontario’s wild northern reaches.
At a time when automation and industry was sweeping the globe, hardy farmers and longstanding fur outposts still dominated the landscape of the clay belt east and west of Lake Temiskaming, but change was on its way.
It moved slowly at first, driving in halting progress north from the outpost of North Bay, but one rail tie and spike at a time, the modern world was cutting its way through the rocky outcrops and bottomless muskeg of the Canadian shield.
The birth of the boom town that would come to be called Cobalt can be traced back to two contractors, hired to provide the lumber rail ties that made the progress of the railway possible.
Legend tells us that J.H. McKinley and Ernest Darragh were surveying their timber limits while afloat on Loon Lake when they spotted the unmistakeable sheen of precious metals on that lake’s rocky shores.
It was a sighting that proved to deliver on an epic wealth of silver, sparking northeastern Ontario’s first precious metal mining boom and cementing the communities of Cobalt, Haileybury and New Liskeard as a new ‘civilized’ outpost on the frontier.
The story is one you know, with the discovery of untold wealth came droves of people from near and far, driven by the promise and opportunity of a fresh start far beyond the bounds of what they knew.
The mines boomed, communities flourished and for the first time in Northern Ontario, a specialist school was established to translate the mining expertise that populated the stopes and drifts of local operations into an educational opportunity for anyone looking to carve a place for themselves in the boomtowns of Ontario’s northeast.
The dream of one enterprising and visionary educator, the Haileybury School of Mines story begins in 1912, a tale that over the coming decades would cement Canada as a world leader in mining expertise.
Designed to meet the needs of a burgeoning Canadian mining industry, HSM as it affectionately came to be known, would produce thousands of world-renowned mining professionals, creating a legacy reflected in the quality of its graduates and in the wisdom of its teaching techniques.
For decades, HSM operated independently, atop its hillside home overlooking Lake Temiskaming, until 1970, when the institution merged with the newly created Northern College.
Building upon the valuable lessons offered by HSM, Northern College continued the long-held traditions of experiential learning, close knit classes and above all a sense of community that has long defined both institutions.
In the northern reaches of Ontario, tradition isn’t a word tossed around lightly, or often, but Northern College is proud of its roots, its influences, and the legacy on which it is founded, it serves as a driving force, an informing voice and a reassuring reminder that we do things our own way, following our own Northern star.
We wholeheartedly encourage our students to do the same.
