Local Connections SHARE ON: Kapuskasing’s Downtown Has A New Look And Feel! A vibrant downtown is key to a strong community! It’s a place to do business or meet up for a coffee or a bite to eat. It plays an important and unique role in economic and social development. It’s commercial, cultural, and civic activities all rolled into one concentrated energetic area. The Kapuskasing BIA (Business Improvement Area) is proud to show off new updates to Downtown Kapuskasing – in particular – the Circle Area!

About The Upgrades The Circle is the heart and center of the town and the Kapuskasing BIA is proud of its many downtown businesses and services and want to showcase them in their best light!

Upgrades in The Circle are happening NOW – with more to come – include new benches, new street signs, new waste bins, flags, landscaping and an updated arch sign. This revitalization project has been funded under a grant named “Ontario’s Main Street Revitalization Program”.
