Both cemeteries are maintained by volunteers.

Churches

Both Cobalt churches are over 100 years old. Located at the corner of Nickle Street & Prospect Avenue in Cobalt, St. James Anglican Church offers services every Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m.

After the service, congregants are invited to stay and enjoy light refreshment in the adjoining meeting room. The room is equipped with a kitchen and can accommodate groups of 50 people.

St. Patrick’s English Catholic Church at 9 Miller Avenue offers weekly services at 5:30 p.m. every Saturday.

Other churches are located in Haileybury include La Paroisse Ste Croix (the French Catholic Church), the Pentecostal Church, Baptist Church and the Seventh Day Adventist.

Paul Penna Public Library

In 1971, the Town of Cobalt transferred the public library to a newly renovated building at 32 Lang Street where it enjoyed the luxury of space, more shelving, excellent equipment and close regional affiliation. Then disaster struck. On Christmas Eve 1984, a fire destroyed everything – building, equipment, books, historical records.

Within nine months Cobalters rallied. Debris had been cleared away, a new and innovative architectural design had been agreed upon and construction was underway on the beautiful, new building that would arise from the ashes of the old library.

The new public library opened its doors to the public April 14, 1986, despite some incomplete areas and delayed equipment and furnishings. By mid August, 1986, the Library Board had purchased the two lots adjacent to the library building so that the surrounding area might be beautified.

For additional information on the public library, please visit the website.

Cobalt, Latchford & Coleman Area Food Bank

The food bank is located on 22 Earle Street in Cobalt and is run by a group of committed volunteers who raise funds, collect food, shop for groceries, stock the food bank and disburse food to needy individuals and families within the municipalities of Cobalt, Coleman and Latchford.

Individuals or organizations wanting to donate to the food bank can call (705) 679-1197.

Citizen Self-Reporting

The Ontario Provincial Police is pleased to offer Citizen Self Reporting, an alternative reporting option that allows the public to report specific crimes to police via the internet, anywhere, anytime. The OPP’s Citizens Self Reporting system allows members of the public to use a computer or mobile device to report an incident without requiring an officer to attend the scene.

Citizen Self Reporting is simple and convenient and can be used when reporting incidents that do not involve injury or a suspect, or a crime that is not an emergency. The use of this new system is completely optional. Police will still attend a call for service if desired.

T 9-1-1 for DHHSI

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is improving its capacity for emergency response and enhancing the safety for an important segment of the communities it serves.

Beginning Wednesday, April 15, the OPP will be equipped to receive emergency calls for service via Text with 911 (T9-1-1) from people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or speech impaired (DHHSI) and for which the OPP is the Primary Public Safety Answering Point (P-PSAP).

T9-1-1 enables emergency communication with OPP 9-1-1 call takers via text message (or SMS). In order to use T9-1-1, members of the DHHSI community must register their cell phones with their wireless carrier in advance. Some older model phones may not be compatible. Those who have more than one cell phone will need to register each phone individually. The T9-1-1 service is not intended for use by the general public.

An Information Card is available on the OPP website at this address (http://www.opp.ca/ecms/index.php?id=620) and via several OPP-serviced jurisdictions. More information is also available through the Canadian Wireless Telecommunication Association at www.cwta.ca.

QUOTES

“The OPP is committed to increasing accessibility for persons with disabilities, and has made extensive network upgrades to be able to offer Text with 9-1-1 service in the communities we serve.” — Commissioner J.V.N. (Vince) HAWKES

“Preparing to offer Text with 9-1-1 was complex and involved months of collaboration with our service provider and the communities.
