Learn More About Schreiber, Ontario
Schreiber is a municipal township in the Canadian province of Ontario, located on the northernmost point of Lake Superior along Highway 17. The town, with a population of approximately 1100 people, is almost completely located inside the geographic township of Priske, with a small western portion of the town in the southeast of Killraine Township.
The town was named after Sir Collingwood Schreiber, a railway engineer, founding member of the Canadian Society of Civil Engineers, and deputy minister of Railways and Canals 1892-1905.
The town is near the main exposure of the Gunflint chert, which contains rare single-celled proterozoic fossils.
Passing close to the town is the Casques Isles Trail, a dream of Schreiber-born outdoorsman Tom McGrath. This scenic pathway along Lake Superior now forms part of the Voyageur Hiking Trail.
