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.
