Sault Ste Marie car insurance information

Sault Ste (Saint) Marie, with an approximate population of 74,566, carries the nickname "The Soo" and the motto "Naturally Gifted". It is the third largest city in northern Ontario and is located on the St. Mary's River in the Algoma District. The name comes from the Old French Phrase "Saults de Sainte-Marie," which means "Saint Mary's Falls".

Originally, the area was known as Baawitigong which is an Ojibwa name meaning "place of the rapids". When Etienne Brule came here in 1623, the place was called "Sault de Gaston" after Gaston, Duke of Orleans who was the brother of King Louis XIII of France. French Jesuit missionaries renamed the town to its present name and also settled Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan in the U.S. and across the river from the Canadian city.

As far as the economy goes, the largest employer in the city is Algoma Steel with 3150 employees. Other large employers include the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), Casino Sault Ste. Marie, and a thriving call center industry.

Today, Sault Ste. Marie is similar to many Northern Ontario towns and cities in that the population has declined recently due to better job opportunities in bigger cities such as Toronto. Since the 1990's the city has lost 10,000 residents, dropping from 84,000.

Tourism is a big draw to the area as the city offers trails for many winter and summer activities and beautiful scenery to take in. Things to watch for - in 2008 a $54 million complex will be completed featuring a luxury hotel, restaurants, performing arts theatre, spa, ice hotel, and a 35 thousand square tropical plant biodome. This massive undertaking is called The Borealis Project.

Since Sault Ste Marie is a smaller city and has fewer cars than larger cities like Calgary or Quebec City, which means citizens may pay less for their vehicle insurance. This is because insurance companies feel that if there are fewer cars on the road, there will be fewer accidents.
