Welcome to WAWA, a small friendly Northern Ontario community situated conveniently on the Trans Canada Highway between Sault Ste. Marie and Thunder Bay in Ontario Canada. We’re often remembered for our famous Wawa Goose Monument…a giant 4 ton statue of the Canadian Goose which proudly stands at the entrance to our community. In fact, it’s reported to be the most photographed landmark in North America.


Many fishermen come to cast their line in our many rivers, streams, and lakes. And Wawa has long been a popular hunting ground for bear and moose. We’re very accessible as the Trans Canada Highway passes by our doorstep,…yet completely remote for those who wish to escape into the wilderness.


As many other Northern Ontario communities, Wawa’s history is steeped in the mining of minerals. Although it was gold that first attracted many prospectors to the area, it was the discovery of hematite ore that provided the mainstay industry for Wawa and was a major contributor to our growth as a community.


In terms of education, health care, government services, and retail sector, Wawa is well provided for. We invite you to take a trip through our Web Site and discover our community for yourself.
