The idea of the Atikokan “Come Home” Reunion originated in a Facebook group called Atikokan Memories when a group of past and current residents were reminiscing over their time in Atikokan and of the closure of the Caland and Steep Rock Iron Mines. As a result of these discussions came the idea that everyone who has ever lived or worked in Atikokan should “come home” to visit and reconnect.
A group of volunteers from across the community are working hard to plan the reunion event schedule and will announce details as they are confirmed. For up-to-date information keep checking back on this page or visit the reunion Facebook group.
The cost of registration includes a welcome package and a community dinner on Saturday. Locals and visitors must register in order to attend the community dinner.
There will be a dance at the community centre following the dinner on Saturday. Admission is $15 at the door.
