The town of Moosonee is a vibrant, tightly-knit community located 19 kilometres south of James Bay on the Moose River. Moosonee is the kind of place where it’s a breeze to settle in, get to know your neighbours and quickly feel like an important part of the community. From Moosonee you’ll find passage not only to other northern cities, but to several First Nation communities located on the western coast of James Bay. For the adventurous, Moosonee is located on the edge of Ontario’s Far North and surrounded by countless miles of wilderness and muskeg. In the summer months you can enjoy swimming, boating, fishing, fossil hunting, camping, and even simply exploring this enthralling natural environment.
