So why would we celebrate lumberjacks in Algoma Country? During the 19th and 20th century, pioneer lumberjacks worked in this area, and specifically what is now Mississagi Provincial Park. These hardworking men helped to shape the history of our area in Northern Ontario. And we also think it's fun to dress up in plaid shirts and toques.
