Foleyet is a small town approximately 100km west of Timmins and East of Chapleau, with a population of approximately 275 people. St. John’s church was built in the early 1900’s along with the town. The CNR wanted to build a railroad and hired as contractors, the Foley Brothers for the build. A little town rose up in the territory as the railroad construction was taking place. The brothers really wanted the town to hold their name, but there was already a town named Foley. “We’ll name this place Foley yet!” said the Brothers, and as it appears, the term stuck. The Anglican ministry in Foleyet is shared with Chapleau.
