I love this place.

Kirkland Lake

Located in the heart of Northeastern Ontario, about 88 kms north of Temiskaming Shores, this friendly community of 9,000 people has seen its roots grow from a booming gold mining camp to a charming town with much everyoneto see and do.

The community name was based on a nearby lake which in turn was named after Winnifred Kirkland, a secretary of the OntarioDepartment of Mines in Toronto. The lake was named by surveyor Louis Rorke in 1907.[2] Miss Kirkland never visited the town, and the lake that bore her name no longer exists because of mine tailings. The community comprises Kirkland Lake, as well asSwastika, Chaput Hughes and Harvey Kirkland. Gold production is still a key industry in Kirkland Lake.
