Dorion is a small rural community in Northwestern Ontario with a population of 380 people and a land mass of 212 square kilometres. Dorion is located 70 kilometres northeast of Thunder Bay, Ontario on highway 11/17 on the Top of Lake Superior. The Dorion area is rich in natural resources, abundant with tourism and recreational opportunities and offers a high quality of life for residents and visitors in the community.
The Township is well served by rail and road connections and is within an hour drive to Thunder Bay regional hospital and international airport. As the economy continues to experience transition in the forest industry, current growth in mining exploration, research into wind energy and in agro-forestry shows potential to replace much of the base sector employment that has been lost.
Dorion has a rich history and prides itself on the quality of life it has to offer people. Dorion is a great place for people to live, play and visit. Why Dorion? It all comes down to quality of life!
