Situated at the entrance to the North Channel amidst sparkling white quartzite peaks and pink granite rock, its harbour sheltered from the turbulent waters of Georgian Bay by George Island, the original Village of Killarney is the oldest community on the north shore.
With a year-round population of less than 500, this treasure of Rainbow Country must surely rank as the biggest little town in Canada, if not the world!

HIGHWAY 637 UPDATE:
The Ministry of Transportation is aware of the condition of Highway 637 from Highway 69 to Killarney, a distance of approximately 70 kilometres.
Sections of Highway 637 are nearing the need for rehabilitation and will be prioritized against regional needs. Over the past five years, the ministry has resurfaced approximately 15 kilometres and replaced several deteriorated centreline culverts along Highway 637.
Ministry staff are reviewing poorly performing distortion and frost heave areas along this section. Preliminary engineering work has also commenced to plan for the rehabilitation of three bridges on Highway 637, including the Wanapitei River, Mahzenazing River and Wolf Creek bridges. Once these reviews are complete, a longer- term strategy along the Highway 637 corridor, from Highway 69 to Killarney, will be established to ensure safe driving conditions and improve ride quality on this highway.
The maintenance contractor for the Sudbury area, Emcon Services, continues to undertake regular pothole patch repairs. Recent rainy weather has accelerated the deterioration of highway sections. Ministry staff have reviewed the highway and will be undertaking several larger machine placed asphalt repairs on the poor performing sections until permanent roadway repairs and resurfacing is completed. We expect work on these larger asphalt repair areas will commence early next week and will be complete in advance of the July 1st long weekend.
Due to the flooding issues on the French River, the Municipality of Killarney wish to advise that at this time Ward 1 and Ward 2 are not adversely affected. All business operations within our boundaries are open for business.
Although, should we receive significant rainfall this could change. Therefore, any revisions will be updated on our website.
