Information about Sudbury
Greater Sudbury previously known as Sudbury (French: Grand-Sudbury), is a municipality in Ontario, Canada. It is the most populous municipality in Northern Ontario by population, with a population of 161,531 at the 2016 Canadian Census. By land distance, it is one of the largest in Ontario and the fifth most populous in Canada. It is administratively a Unitary government, and therefore not a piece of any district, county, or regional city.
The Sudbury area was occupied by the Ojibwe people of the Algonquin organization for thousands of years before the establishment of Sudbury following the exploration of nickel mineral in 1883 during the development of the transcontinental railroad. Greater Sudbury was established in 2001 by uniting the towns and cities of the former Regional Municipality of Sudbury with numerous previously unincorporated towns. Sudbury is positioned inland, so the local weather is hugely seasonal with average January lows of around −18 °C (0 °F) and average July highs of 25 °C (77 °F).
The community resides in a downtown core, and several smaller towns spread around 330 lakes and between hills of rock darkened by historical smelting projects. Sudbury was formerly a significant lumber town and a world ruler in nickel mining. Mining and associated industries controlled the market for enough of the 20th century. The two significant mining businesses which formed the history of Sudbury were Inco, now Vale Limited, which contracted more than 25% of the community by the 1970s, and Falconbridge, now Glencore. Sudbury has since grown from its resource-based market to develop as the dominant retail, business, health and institutional centre for Northeastern Ontario. Sudbury is also home to a sizeable Franco-Ontarian community that inspires its arts and literature.
