Gilles Gagnon Welcome Centre

Located on Hwy 11 East, the Welcome Centre is the place to visit to plan your stay. It is opened all year long from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. During the summer, it is opened from Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on holidays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Our team will be happy to provide all relevant information to your stay regarding the many activities and services provided in our community as well as our region.

The building is known for its unique roof shaped as a conifer tree with a front wall designed as a saw cutting into the building. The center’s grounds also feature a typical wildlife scene in the forests of northern Ontario, a playground for children and picnic tables. Take advantage of your visit to browse through the many local souvenirs.

We also have a boutique where you’ll find locally made articles and souvenirs! Looking forward to meeting you!
