Area Information
Porquis Junction is in Northern Ontario.
It is located about 29 miles [46 km] to the southwest of Porquis Junction. The largest community within a 50 mile [80 km] radius is Timmins. It was established in 1912 and incorporated in 1915.
Porquis Junction used to be a small agricultural centre, with its own agricultural hall and even a John Deere dealership.
Known across the north, the Porquis Blues Festival is held on a small covered stage behind the community centre every July. The hamlet is serviced by Ontario Northland but not by scheduled stops; pickup and drop off are only by request.
