Plummer Additional is a township and single tier municipality[2] located in Algoma District in Northeastern Ontario, Canada. The township had a population of 625 in the Canada 2006 Census.

Communities[edit]

The township includes the communities of Bruce Station, Cloudslee, Plummer, Rock Lake and Rydal Bank.

The town of Bruce Mines is wholly surrounded by, but politically independent of, the township; it was separated in 1903. However, the 2010 mayoral election in Bruce Mines was won by Gordon Post, a candidate who pledged to investigate the feasibility of reamalgamating the two municipalities.[3]

History[edit]

Rydal Bank Church located at Rydal Bank within the township is a municipally designated heritage site.
