I wish it were over 5 years ago. I would have made sure I'd visit the STC if I knew it was going to come to this. But none of us could have known Evil or Very Mad

Shania Twain Centre
Timmins, ON

Today City Council declared the Shania Twain Centre & Gold Mine Tour lands and buildings as surplus to the ongoing needs of the municipality. City Council also approved the direct sale of the Shania Twain Centre, Timmins Underground Mine
Tour and all associated lands to Goldcorp. After carefully reviewing... recommendations contained in a report prepared by PKF Consulting, Council directed administration to approach Goldcorp in order to gauge their interest in the possible purchase of the City-
owned attractions and associated lands. After many meetings with Goldcorp’s senior management team, an offer to purchase the Shania Twain Centre, the Timmins Underground Mine Tour and all surrounding lands was made by Goldcorp.

According to Mayor Laughren,” the decision to close the attractions was difficult to make. The PKF Report shed some light on the current state of business for both attractions and more importantly, confirmed that the centre would require continued subsidies from the City of Timmins estimated at $300,000 / annum. In today’s
economic climate, it’s important we make economically prudent decisions and practice financial discipline with the City’s available sources of funding. We see a great opportunity to continue featuring both our home town star and our mining heritage in
other, more cost effective ways and will be working on a comprehensive plan to continue showcasing this city’s proud heritage” added Mayor Laughren.

Maple Leaf Productions, the company overseeing the Shania Twain collection removed the lion share of the collection earlier this year as they understood the City of Timmins was facing many changes and supported the downsizing of the exhibit space used for
the Shania Twain collection. Maple Leaf Productions looks forward to working with the City of Timmins in the future to securely display parts of the Shania Twain collection in agreed upon locations throughout the community if that is the course the City chooses.

It’s expected that the Shania Twain Centre will remain open until the end of January 2013 .

For more information contact Mayor Tom Laughren 705-360-2600 ext 2005.
