The city's population was 9,746 in the Canada 2016 Census. It is the seat of Algoma District and a service centre for surrounding communities. The municipality includes several First Nations reserves belonging to the Anishnaabeg of Naongashiing, Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation and Ojibways of Onigaming First Nation bands. History [ edit ] Elliot Lake was named after Charles Elliot (1842–1923), who served as Commissioner for Crown Lands from 1887 to 1907. In 1912 it became an incorporated village with a population under 500 people; it had no mayor or council at that time. A few years later on January 1, 1916, Elliot Lake officially became a town when its first mayor took office: William Halesworth. By this time there were over 1000 residents living within its boundaries.
