The Coureur de bois explored and traded fur in what is now the Timiskaming District, in the 17th century.[2]

Politics

The district seat is in Temiskaming Shores.

Along with portions of the neighbouring district, Cochrane, Timiskaming is represented in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario by David Ramsay. In the House of Commons of Canada, the district is divided between Nipissing—Timiskaming, represented by Jay Aspin, in the south, and Timmins—James Bay, represented by Charlie Angus, in the north. A very small portion of the district also belongs to the riding of Nickel Belt.
