BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Greater Sudbury is a regional hub for many Ontarians who live in the surrounding communities. These people visit family and friends, seek cultural and educational experiences, entertain themselves, store or go on business. It is also a city of lakes, with 330 of them!

Over the years, Sudbury's francophones have developed an organizational infrastructure and have been pioneers in many ways, as you will see. Today, the wide range of socio-cultural services offered in French or in both official languages to its 42,000 francophone residents make Greater Sudbury a rich and dynamic place.

Approximately 300 mining companies in the region provide employment to 6,000 people in Greater Sudbury. Related to this industry, you will find one of Canada's largest science museums here. You'll also find eight Ontario Provincial Parks in the area, as well as the largest francophone population in the north of the province.
