Jamie Lim (born February 23, 1959 in Timmins, Ontario) was Mayor of Timmins from 2000 to 2003. She was educated at the University of Western Ontario; she holds a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education degree. Lim was an elected school board trustee and city councillor (1997) for Timmins City Council before being elected mayor in 2000, succeeding veteran mayor Victor M. Power on his retirement. She was Timmins' first female mayor. During her tenure as mayor, she was elected third vice-president of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.
In the municipal election of 2003, Power returned to politics and defeated Lim. Lim's re-election campaign discussed economic development, youth, and the revitalization of the community, but she faced criticism for her support for the construction of a new public library building when critics charged that other projects, notably a larger police facility, should have been prioritized.
She is now president and CEO of the Ontario Forestry Industries Association.
