    Welcome to Gore Bay on Beautiful Manitoulin Island

    The Town of Gore Bay, located on the North Channel of Lake Huron, is nestled between two splendid, tree-covered bluffs. Incorporated in 1890, Gore Bay is one of the larger communities on Manitoulin with a permanent population of just over 900. Gore Bay is the judicial centre of Manitoulin, and one of the island's commercial and professional centres.

    The Town of Gore Bay would like to advise all residents of the potential for water lines freezing. Due to below seasonal temperatures it is advised that you allow for a small stream of water to flow, to aid in keeping your waterlines open.  Please note that you are at a higher risk of having frozen water lines as the temperature rises.
