Of the three towns that make up the former Municipality of Onaping Falls, the Town of Onaping is the youngest, having only been established in the 1950's. Still, this community has a fascinating history of triumph and determination. What began as a company mining town that many thought wouldn't last quickly grew to become a permanent settlement that residents today are proud to call "home".
Onaping, originally known as Hardy, overcame the negative image associated with a mining settlement and through courage and dedication, managed to convert the naysayers into town supporters.
Today, the Town of Onaping is a valuable community within the City of Greater Sudbury and its contributions to our collective history will not soon be forgotten.
