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 the most 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.
