A Bit of History

1980

The Cochrane Temiskaming Children’s Treatment Centre officially opened its doors in April of 1980. The Centre is one of 21 such agencies in the Province of Ontario. The Centre is funded by the Province of Ontario, Ministry of Children and Youth Services. (MCYS)

The Centre’s catchment area includes both Districts of Cochrane and Temiskaming – stretching from the Northwest corner of the District of Cochrane in Hearst to the Southeast corner of the District of Temiskaming in Latchford. The Centre also covers Moosonee and Moose Factory on the James Bay coast. Therapists travel on a regular basis to its outreach communities.

1984 & 1985

The Centre established satellite offices in 1984 and 1985 in Kirkland Lake, New Liskeard and Kapuskasing.

1998

After operating out of leased quarters in South Porcupine and subsequently in Timmins, in April of 1998, the Centre moved into its permanent location. The building is named “Kinross Place” (named in honour of its largest donor). The Centre is located on the corner of Ross Avenue and Highway 655.

Between 2000 and 2002

Between 2000 and 2002, the Centre Staff planned and raised funds in the Community to build an accessible playground on the site of our new building. The whole community enjoys the park, named “Timmins Kiwanis Funland”, so-named due to our major donor, the Timmins Kiwanis Club.

The Centre employed 4 Staff Members in 1980 and now has grown to 30 Staff.
