Whether you are taking up residence in the Township or just paying us a visit, you are most welcome. We are confident that you will find Chisholm a nice place to be. We have forests, gently rolling countryside, and lakes and rivers. There is so much to enjoy in the way of outdoor activities and sports, and the City of North Bay with its theatres, art galleries and special events is only a thirty minute drive away.
As North Bay is well connected to major cities using Highways 11 and 17, and with buses, flights and trains, Chisholm is readily accessible, but at the same time it enjoys a measure of seclusion.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: A fire ban is in effect for the Township of Chisholm. No open air burning, including campfires! Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. (Fire Chief, Matt Plant)

Mandatory Septic Inspections
In January 2011, the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing revised the Ontario Building Code (OBC), creating “mandatory maintenance inspections” for all septic systems in Ontario identified as a “significant threat” to drinking water sources. If this pertains to your property you may have received a letter this year explaining that your septic was to be inspected. For a copy of this letter and flyer please see the bottom of this page.
