Shania Twain Centre: Honey, I need a home

The City of Timmins is looking to sell the Shania Twain Centre.



TIMMINS, Ont. - The city will send out two separate requests for proposals to relocate Shania Twain memorabilia and essential mining artifacts after the closure and selloff of the Shania Twain Centre and the Underground Gold Mine Tour.

City council approved the motion to send out the requests for proposals on Tuesday, after tourism manager Guy Lamarche presented a long list of relocation ideas for council to consider before saying that the city's ability to relocate the items can only go so far.

Paraphernalia from both attractions are looking for new homes after the land they sit on was declared surplus by the city and sold to Goldcorp earlier this month.

Lamarche said there's a lot more than meets the eye to planning asset relocation. Some of the ideas he presented included roving glass-case displays of Twain's memorabilia at places like the Timmins Victor M. Power Airport, the Timmins Museum: National Exhibition Centre or the Timmins Square.
