Home » Communities » Kirkland Lake

Kirkland Lake is a gold mining town that is also known across Canada for producing more than 30 National Hockey League players, more per capita than any town in the country. The community was literally built on top of rich gold deposits, and the main street, Government Road, is called the Mile of Gold. Gold mining remains a big part of the economy. Kirkland Lake has a bustling commercial sector, a hospital, recreation facilities, government services, schools and a campus of Northern College. Nearby Esker Lakes Provincial Park offers family camping, fishing and hiking opportunities.
