PAST INDUSTRY Before the eco-revolution of late 20th Century, chemical plants abounded in the Parry Sound Area. Detail of Cordite Plant Staff Photograph, 1915, click for full view This 1915 photograph from the archives of the West Parry Sound District Museum shows cordite workers posing for a picture outside the Canadian Explosives Limited (CXL) plant in Nobel. The CXL plant produced gelatin and cordite during World War One and contributed greatly to the Allied war effort. Most of the employees were women as they had to work in the factories since the men had left for war. After the war, CXL swapped explosives for paint and became CIL which ultimately closed in 1984. For more information, stop by the West Parry Sound District Museum on Tower Hill or visit MAYOR RICHARD ADAMS WELCOMES YOU!

In 2007, Zeuter Development Corporation (Zeuter) became the first independent generator in Parry Sound District. Solar farms provide the power to run Zeuter’s wireless network now extending over several hundred square miles. Ironically, the announcement of $225M in funding for wireless internet last fall has stalled further expansion as funding cannot be applied retroactively. The announcement of disbursement of funding is now more than five months behind schedule.
