It is my pleasure to welcome you to Chapleau, the WFN Ultimate Fishing Town in Canada winner and Friendliest Town in the North.
Chapleau is a small town of just over 2000 people, a little gem set against the backdrop of pristine lakes, rivers, and abundant forests of northern Ontario.
As well as world-class fishing, Chapleau is the Gateway to the World's Largest Crown Game Preserve, and is a paradise for everyone who loves the great outdoors. Whether it be for nature photography, snowmobiling, boating, or enjoying nature in any of our beautiful Provincial Parks, Chapleau is a place to experience and where memories are made.
For over 100 years, Chapleau has served the railroad and the forestry industry, a heritage that continues to this day, but our greatest asset is in the hearts of our people. We are proud to be a bilingual community with close First Nations neighbours, and we look forward to making you a part of our family.
