By 1880, Little Current, or “Petite Current” as it was known by the voyageurs, was well recognized as the “Gateway Port” to Manitoulin Island and a critical stop-over point for refuelling and re-supplying water traffic on the Great Lakes. In 1998, the Town of Little Current was amalgamated with the Township of Howland and the McGregor Bay area to form the municipality that we now know as the Town of Northeastern Manitoulin and the Islands or NEMI.
