Job Description:

Elliot Lake is a clean, modern city, combining the charm and hospitality of a small town with the services of a major urban centre.

Hiking trails have some of the most breathtaking scenery in Ontario, with many lookouts, wildlife and historical sites to explore. Hundreds of kilometres of biking trails are cut into the rugged, natural terrain, and Elliot Lake has been the host of many Ontario Cup Mountain Bike Races. In winter, Elliot Lake offers some of the best snowmobiling in North America, with over 2500 kilometres of trails, and cross-country skiing is available on several groomed trails within the city limits and on endless kilometres of back country roads. Downhill skiing is in the heart of Elliot Lake on Mount Dufour, a challenging 320 foot vertical drop with seven runs and 100% snowmaking capability. Curling is a favourite winter social and recreational opportunity at the Elliot Lake Deer Trail Curling Club, with 5 sheets of ice. With a relatively low cost of living and the best outdoor recreation opportunities, Elliot Lake is thriving, with retirees and cottagers constantly moving into the community, creating a demand for goods and services that are keeping the community s businesses busy and expanding.
