DescriptionThis riding, which covers the northeast corner of the province, is the second largest in Ontario. According to the 1996 census, 46 per cent of residents call French the mother tongue; that's the second highest rate in Ontario.

The riding extends from Hudson Bay in the north to James Bay and the Quebec/Ontario border in the east. The riding's largest population centre is Timmins, in the southeast, but it also includes Kapuskasing, Smooth Rock Falls, Moosonee, Hearst and many native reserves.

The economy is resource-based in such industries as mining and forestry. In the 1999 redistribution, the new riding of Timmins-James Bay combined 81 per cent of the former Cochrane North riding with an equal portion of the old Cochrane South.
