Welcome to
Canyon Country

Explore & Experience Dorion

Only 70 kilometres east of Thunder Bay, Dorion gives you the best of both worlds -- rural serenity at a close distance to Northwestern Ontario's urban centre. Dorion is 212 square kilometres of the vast northern boreal forest spotted with many inland lakes, rivers and streams swimming with pickerel and trout. If you're seeking northern adventure and relaxation, Dorion is the place to be. The regional tourism opportunities are endless, the experience is unforgettable and the people are warm and friendly.
