A little bit of our history
Like most northern communities, the Town of Kapuskasing started with the development of the National Transcontinental Railway. In 1917, the name of MacPherson changed to Kapuskasing (Bend in the river), as it remains today. During World War I, internment camps were built for enemy aliens residing within the country. After the war, the Canadian government maintained the development of Northern Ontario by increasing its population by offering 100 acres of land to any family willing to settle in the north. In 1920, the Spruce Falls Power and Paper Company Ltd. opened its doors and in 1921 The Town of Kapuskasing was officially incorporated.
