The Municipality of Markstay-Warren lies within the Sudbury East area, located along the Highway 17 corridor between the City of Greater Sudbury and the City of North Bay. It was created in 1999 through the amalgamation of the political townships of Hagar, and Ratter and Dunnet, the geographic township of Awrey, and portions of the geographic townships of Hawley, Street, Loughrin and Henry. The three major settlements within the Municipality are the village of Markstay, the village of Hagar, and the village of Warren.
Like every small northern community, the Municipality of Markstay-Warren has most amenities to serve the needs of its residents. From local variety stores to a beautiful scenic golf course, in Markstay-Warren every service is just around the corner.
The Municipality is home to both public and seperate schools, which offer instruction in both English and French. This option offers a choice of education in one area to educate our children in both official languages.
Employment in Markstay-Warren continues in agricultural, forestry and is dominated by a vibrant tourism industry.
Following the amalgamation and restructuring process in January 1, 1999, the Council of the Municipality recognized the strategic importance of the collective resources of the former Townships and decided to embark on the development of a strategic plan for the new municipality.
