Sault Ste. Marie Information

Sault Ste. Marie is a city on the St. Marys River in Ontario, Canada. It is the third largest city in Northern Ontario. Sault Ste. Marie is bordered to the east by the Rankin Location and Garden River First Nation reserves, and to the west by Prince Township. To the north, the city is bordered by an unincorporated portion of the Algoma District, with Heyden as the nearest community. To the south, across the river, is the United States and the city of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.

The city has made a name for itself in steel-making, and Algoma Steel is the largest single employer with 3150 employees at the main plant and about 554 at the Tube Mill Tenaris, which is separate from Algoma Steel. During the 1940s, the steel and chromium operations were of substantial importance to the war effort in Canada and the United States. The Algoma Steel and the Chromium Mining and Smelting Corporation were key producers for transportation and military machines.

Sault Ste. Marie is home to the Bon Soo winter carnival, held every February. The city also hosts the annual Algoma Fall Festival which draws local and international performing artists. The Kiwanis Community Theatre and the landmark Central United Church are used for the performances. Both venues hold approximately 1,000 people.

The Art Gallery of Algoma features an extensive collection of local and international artist's work and presents regular exhibitions. The Musical Comedy Guild produces one, and sometimes two, amateur musical theatre productions throughout the year. The Guild is known for producing high-quality productions.

Residents celebrate Community Day on the third weekend of July. The local Rotary International club organizes a three-day event called Rotaryfest. Highlights include a large children's activity area, continuous free entertainment, and a large parade in the morning.
