Englehart and the Ontario Northland Railway (formerly The Temiskaming and Northern Ontario Railway) grew up together, in the fertile soil of the north. Chosen by the T&NO Railway to be the halfway divisional point between Timmins and North Bay, our town was created. Centrally located in the District of Temiskaming along the Highway 11 (Trans Canada) corridor, Englehart is a progressive, family oriented municipality. Whether you are resident or visitor, please browse our site for all Englehart has to offer.
