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 theaters, 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.


Construction on Alderdale Rd. is starting the week of July 27, 2020.  The road will NOT be closed but please take extra caution when workers are present for the next three months 
Please watch during the month of August for work on River Road.  There will be a few repairs done early in the month and then the hard surfacing will take place mid-month.
