Hearst, Ontasrio

Hearst is a town located in northern Ontario on the Northern Route of the Trans Canada Highway #11. It is 100 km W of Kapuskasing and 200 km E of Longlac.

Hearst is known for its natural beauty and outdoor recreation, with its surrounding forests. Activities include fishing, hunting, camping, and hiking.


Hearst History

Hearst was founded in 1913 by Canadian Pacific Railway as a divisional point along the transcontinental railway. The town was named after William Hearst, who was then the premier of Ontario (not American newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst as many might think).

In the early years, Hearst was a hub for logging and the forestry industry, with logging being the primary economic activity. By the 1930s, the pulp and paper industry was booming and several mills were built in the area, boosting employment in Hearst.

Over the years, the town of Hearst has been diversifying its economy, and attracting new industries and businesses to the area.
