Flin Flon

FLIN FLON FACTS:

Flin Flon is the only city to be named after a science fiction character - Josiah Flintabbatey Flonatin.

Flin Flon is the only city in the world to locate their sewage/water lines above ground.  This is necessary in some areas of the city because of the masses of near impenetrable bedrock.  Instead of burying the pipes, they are surrounded by a wooden casing and run above ground to create a unique snake-like appearance.  Early settlers first built these above ground sewer and water lines, becoming the settlement’s first “sidewalks”.  They are still used regularly today as fully usable sidewalks.

The smoke stack is one of the tallest free standing structures in Canada standing 825 feet.

Flin Flon is a border community with residents living in both Flin Flon, Manitoba and Flin Flon, Saskatchewan.

Flin Flon is home to NHL star Bobby Clarke.

Dr. Gunston was born in Flin Flon and is the designer of the first artificial knee.
