Hot Tub Covers Sault Ste. Marie
Sault Ste. Marie has a population of 80,000 people, rating it third largest in Northern Ontario. It is situated on the St. Marys River, west of Rankin and Garden River First Nation; east of Prince Township; and south of an unincorporated part of Algoma District. Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan is located south and across the river from Ontario’s Sault Ste. Marie. These two cities are linked by the International Bridge; which in turn, joins Huron Street on the Ontario side to Interstate 75 on the Michigan side. The name Sault Ste. Marie comes from the French word sault which means “jump” or “rapids”, making the entire name “Saint Mary’s Rapids”. Being established in 1668 makes this historic city one of the most ancient European settlements in Canada. Sault Ste. Marie officially became a town in 1887, and in 1912, became a city.
Algoma Steel, now known as Essar Steel Algoma, is by far the largest employer in the city, with over 3500 employees. St. Mary’s Paper is another big player in the local industries as well as the Huron Central Railway, Three Call Centres (Nucomm, Sutherland Global Services, and Cross Country), Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation and the Sault Area Hospital.
