Hudson is a township municipality[1] incorporating the congruent geographic township[2] in Timiskaming District in northeastern Ontario, Canada.[3][4] Hudson is located directly west of the city of Temiskaming Shores[5] and has only one named settlement, the community of Hillview.[6]

Demographics

The township had a population count of 476 in the Canada 2011 Census,[7] an increase of 3.0% from the revised figure of 462 recorded in the Canada 2006 Census.[8]

History

Hudson was surveyed in 1887. However, the first settlers did not arrive until 1897, and the township was incorporated in 1904. The first Census of Canada to take place after settlement, in 1901, recorded the population as 46.[9]

Transportation

Ontario Highway 65 passes through the township on its way from Temiskaming Shores towards Matachewan.[5]
