Ontario has had a few historical claimants, by towns, for housing the province's smallest jail. The main three being: Tweed, Creemore and Coboconk. However, old jailhouses in Providence Bay, Port Dalhousie, Rodney, and ghost town Berens River have proven to be even smaller. The jailhouse in Providence Bay is now a cabin for tourists to stay at.
