Northeastern Manitoulin and the Islands, Ontario

Northeastern Manitoulin and the Islands (2001 census population 2,531) is a town in Northern Ontario, Canada, approximately 30 kilometres south of Espanola, Ontario. The main town is on the northeast side of Manitoulin Island. However, the town also includes most of the small islands surrounding Manitoulin.

The town was created on January 1, 1998 by amalgamating the Town of Little Current with the Township of Howland and the unorganized small islands in Lake Huron.

The Highway 6 swing bridge, connecting Manitoulin to the Trans-Canada Highway north of Espanola, is just outside of Little Current.
