Ce vei face

Come and join me for a guided tour of the story of Cobalt. You will be following me in your own vehicle. The story is intriguing, interesting and you will want to go on to learn even more after our time together. Very few people today know of Cobalt’s history, or even of its existence. Cobalt does not deserve to be a forgotten silver boomtown!

The Cobalt Mining Camp was designated as a Canadian National Historic Site in 2003, it was selected at Ontario’s most historic town of the Century in 2001 for its role in establishing Ontario’s industrial economy and Cobalt was the birthplace of Ontario’s mining industry.

Cobalt’s silver rush was bigger than the Klondike gold rush ! Imagine, there was nothing before 1903, just a largely uninhabited forested land. Ten years later there were 100 mines in operation, a streetcar, three opera houses, a stock exchange, a professional hockey team and a lot more… Cobalt was depicted by several paintings and sketches from the famous Group of Seven.

Through a series of approximately 15 stops, you will be exposed to a glimpse of the story of Cobalt. Old photos will be showed to compare with the landscape today; photos that will help you go back in time. You will learn about the discovery, the Cobalt fever, the birth of a boomtown, the development of extracting technologies, the difficult life and all the ‘firsts’ that occurred in Cobalt

I was born and raised in Northern Ontario and was involved for most of my career in the economic development sector. I have a business and engineering background. For the last decade, I’ve been involved in the tourism sector being co-owner of vacation rental historical homes and a private island. One of our historical homes was developed around the amazing lives of the Cobalt prospectors. A few years back, I also participated in developing interactive tours, which included some of Cobalt’s story. I am an avid outdoor person and the environment has always been important for me. My 1st language is French but I am fully bilingual. I am passionate about sharing the beauties and the history of our beautiful Temiskaming region.
