IFAC Promotional Video
The Iroquois Falls Arts Council (IFAC) was a recipient of a financial contribution from North Claybelt Community Futures Development Corporation (CFDC) in the amount of $1,000.
The IFAC created a promotional video to showcase the arts in all their diverse forms within the community of Iroquois Falls and surrounding areas.
The IFAC captured and gathered video footage for this project over the course of several months. The IFAC partnered with local videographers Tiny Town Media to bring this video to life. It was launched at our Annual General Meeting on February 18, 2023.

Nature surrounds the community of Iroquois Falls and the six colours chosen for the town's Centenary Tartan reflect this. The two shades of green represent the trees of the boreal forest, the two shades of blue are for our northern skies and many lakes, the white is for the winter snow and the brown is for the rich claybelt agricultural soil.
Iroquois Falls Centenary Tartan
The Iroquois Falls centenary tartan blanket project was part of the 100th anniversary celebrations for the Town of Iroquois Falls in 2012. The Town used the year of the start of construction on the mill belonging to the Abitibi Power and Paper Company in 1912 as the founding year of the town. Previously, for the Town's 50th and 75th anniversaries, the year of incorporation, 1915, had been used.
Iroquois Falls started out as a closed company town, carved out of the boreal forest, built to house the employees of the paper mill. Iroquois Falls benefited from the presence of its largest employer for over 100 years. In 2015, the paper mill was shut down and dismantled.
