Welcome to our Community!

Our community is nestled in the LaCloche Foothills region of Lake Huron's North Shore, encompassing a large rural area including the communities of Walford, Massey and Webbwood.

 

Incorporated in July of 1998, the Township of Sables-Spanish Rivers offers all of the convenience of urban living amidst tranquil rural surroundings.

 

While larger urban centres such as Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie are only a short drive away, our many local retail and service establishments easily meet the needs of our residents, visitors and businesses alike.
