Smooth Rock Falls is a vibrant, culturally diverse community that has the intimacy of a small town with the amenities of a large community. Home to 1,376 residents, the community is a perfect place to raise a family and run a business. Smooth Rock Falls has a rich history in the Forestry and Energy sectors. Established in 1916, Smooth Rock Falls lies on the Mattagami River, which was historically used to float millions of logs downstream to mills. The town’s location made it an ideal area for the development of hydroelectric power and other natural resources in Northern Ontario. Today, the town has diversified its economy with investments in health care, social services and education.
