About Cochrane

Cochrane, Ontario

 

 

 

Cochrane is a town in northeastern Ontario, Canada. It is located east of Kapuskasing, northeast of Timmins, south of Moosonee, and north ofIroquois Falls. It is about a one-hour drive from Timmins, the major city of the region. It is the seat of Cochrane District. The town's population is made up of approximately half anglophone and half francophone residents.

The town contains many references to polar bears. Its mascot is a large polar bear statue known as Chimo. There are also live polar bears at the Polar Bear Conservation and Educational Habitat and Heritage Village, which opened in the summer of 2004. Polar bears from the Metro Toronto Zoo were relocated to Cochrane while a new pavilion was being constructed. Those two polar bears were returned to the Toronto Zoo in the summer of 2009.[3] In late May 2012, a new bear arrived at the Polar Bear Habitat, Ganuk. Also in 2012, a second bear, Inukshuk, was brought from the Toronto Zoo to The Polar Bear Habitat as a part-time resident. He is returned to the Toronto Zoo for a few months every year for breeding purposes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

History 

 

 

 


Before Cochrane was founded, it was already used as a summer camp ground by the indigenous people, and a stopping place for fur traders traveling to Moose Factory. In the early 20th century, the National Transcontinental Railway was built through the area, and in 1907, the place was selected as the junction point with the Temiskaming and Northern Ontario Railway. In November 1908, the lots were sold by auction and a railway town formed. It was incorporated on January 1, 1910, and named for politician and merchant Frank Cochrane, a former mayor of Sudbury. He was Ontario minister of Lands & Forests and federal minister of Railways and Canals in the cabinet of Robert Borden.

The settlement was devastated by fire in 1910, 1911, and 1916, but rebuilt each time and became a transportation hub for northern Ontario.

After the Reesor Siding Strike of 1963, Cochrane was the site of the trial for 20 Reesor Siding farmers charged with the killing of 3 union employees.

The Town of Cochrane amalgamated with the surrounding townships of Glackmeyer and Lamarche to create a newly expanded Town of Cochrane in 2000.

 

 

 

 

 

Born in Cochrane

Cochrane is the birthplace of Tim Horton, a player member of the Hockey Hall of Fame who founded the Tim Hortonsdoughnut and coffee shop chain in Hamilton, Ontario, in 1964. A new multi-purpose arena and events centre, the Tim Horton Events Centre, built in honour of him, was officially opened in the fall of 2006. Numerous construction delays hindered its official opening, but it is now fully operational. The Tim Horton Museum is also situated in the facility containing hockey memorabilia.

Cochrane is also the birthplace of Tim Horton's classmate Donald McKinnon (born 1929). McKinnon was first in forestry but later became a prospector. He is most famous as the co-discoverer of the goldfields at Hemlo on Lake Superior, resulting in three great gold mines. He lives and works out of Timmins under McKinnon Prospecting and was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada in 1996. A book, The Scholarly Prospector — Don MacKinnon, was published by Michael Barnes in 2007.

On August 7, 1960, award winning author, Deborah Ellis was born in Cochrane. Ellis has been named to the Order of Ontario, is a recipient of the Governor General's Award, and is a notable philanthropist. Ellis' works include Looking for X,The Breadwinner and Parvana's Journey.
