About Englehart

Welcome to Englehart, known as the Little Town with the Big Heart. 

The Town of Englehart was created when the building of the Temiskaming and Northern Ontario (T&NO) Railway and named after Chairman Jacob Lewis Englehart. The Town of Englehart was incorporated in January 1908. Englehart served as the half-way point between North Bay and what is now Cochrane where the T&NO Railway met with the newly formed Transcontinental Railway (now the CNR). 

Englehart is a quaint, centrally located Town in the District of Temiskaming along the Highway 11 Trans Canada corridor. Englehart is a progressive, family oriented municipality that is always welcoming of new residents. 

Whether you are a resident or visitor, Englehart welcomes you with open arms.
