Sudbury Ontario

Sudbury, Ontario - was created following the discovery of nickel ore by Tom Flanagan, a Canadian Pacific Railway blacksmith in 1883, when the transcontinental railway was near completion. It is the largest city in Northern Ontario by population and by land area, it is the largest city in Ontario and the seventh largest municipality by area in Canada. The population resides in an urban core and many smaller communities scattered around 300 lakes and among hills of rock blackened by historical mining activity. Sudbury was once a major lumber centre and a world leader in nickel mining. Mining and related industries dominated the economy for much of the 20th century. The two major mining companies which shaped the history of Sudbury were Inco, now Vale, which employed more than 25% of the population by the 1970s, and Falconbridge, now Glencore Xstrata.
