A Special Thank-you...

The Council of the Township of Sables-Spanish Rivers wishes to congratulate and commend the businesses in Massey for hosting “Christmas in Massey” on Friday, December 5th, 2014.  This was a very successful first-time event that brought many out in our community.

 A special Thank You also is extended to the Emiry Family, the Lutheran Church and the numerous volunteers for their dedication and hard work in providing our community with the Walk to Bethlehem again this year.   This is always such a special tribute to Christmas and enjoyed by so many.


Council also wishes to commend and thank the Sables-Spanish Rivers Fire Department for their exceptional work in canvassing for the Annual Christmas Food Drive.  The residents of the community are also thanked for their generous donations to the Food Bank.

Welcome to the Township of Sables-Spanish Rivers

Our community is nestled in the LaCloche Foothills region of Lake Huron's North Shore, encompassing a large rural area including the communities of Walford, Massey and Webbwood.

Incorporated in July of 1998, the Township of Sables-Spanish Rivers offers all of the convenience of urban living amidst tranquil rural surroundings.

While larger urban centres such as Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie are only a short drive away, our many local retail and service establishments easily meet the needs of our residents, visitors and businesses alike.

A well-staffed medical clinic, volunteer fire department, two libraries, learning center, arena facility, two community halls, outdoor rinks, restaurants and farming history are but a few reasons why visitors to our community often become long-term residents.
