Marie prospered during the 1960s and '70s, but as imported steel began to compete with domestic production, the local industry began to contract. Since the late 1980s, Algoma Steel, has declared bankruptcy twice and laid off large numbers of workers. Algoma was bailed out by the Ontario government with interest

-free loans. The company experienced a swift turnaround in 2004 from its earlier financial troubles of the 1990s. China's increased demand for steel of the past decade has increased the price of steel. Denis Turcotte, CEO, was named Canadian CEO of the year in 2006 for his efforts. An offer to purchase ASI by the Essar Group (India) had been recommended by the ASI Board of Directors and was approved. The company was officially sold to the Essar Group in June 2007 for $1.6 billion. Essar Steel Algoma is currently the most profitable steel company per unit on a global scale. Forestry is also a major local industry, although St. Mary's Paper has been closed and decommissioned, despite having been reopened in June 2007 under new ownership. Also related to wood products is Flakeboard Ltd., which employs over 110 people in the community along with an adjacent melamine factory which manufactures products with Flakeboard's materials. Such examples of this are furniture and cupboards where a finish is added to the product. Together both of Flakeboard's factories employ about 150 people. The Huron Central Railway is important to these local industries as well. Furthermore, the business process outsourcing industry, with two call centres, Agero and Sutherland Global Services located within city limits employ about 1500 people. The largest employer of the three call centres is Sutherland Global Services. Nucomm previously had a call centre here as well. The call centre industry has become a large employer in Sault Ste. Marie which contributed to the economic turn around of the city in the late 1990s. Another large employer in the community is the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG). The OLG has a corporate office located within the city on the waterfront and employs about 900 people in Sault Ste. Marie between the corporate office and OLG Casino Sault Ste. Marie. The prize centre used to reside within the city but was moved back to Toronto (York Mills) in 2009. Its role in Sault Ste. Marie has diminished, although only slightly; however, it is still the fourth largest employer next only to Essar Steel Algoma, Sault Area Hospital and the call centre industry. Sault Ste. Marie is one of only a few cities in Ontario where a municipal bylaw prevents stores from opening on December 26. As in Sudbury, retail stores in Sault Ste. Marie instead begin their post-Christmas Boxing Day sales on December 27.

Although voter turnout was not high enough to make the referendum legally binding, meaning that Sault Ste. Marie City Council is free to disregard the results if it chooses to revisit the issue in the future, 60.77 per cent of voters opposed allowing stores to open.

The '''Soo Thunderbirds''' are a Junior "A" ice hockey team from Sault Ste. Marie (Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario), Ontario, Canada. They are a part of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League. With the Soo Greyhounds and Soo Thunderbirds playing out of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Sault business man Domenic Sacco knew that surrounding communities would jump at the chance of seeing high-calibre hockey in their hometowns on a regular basis. Thus the reintroduction of the Thessalon Flyers in the small farming community of Thessalon, Ontario. With a competitive talent pool being sought by teams such as the Thunderbirds and nearby Soo Indians and Blind River Beavers, Sacco knew that drawing a competitive team would be difficult. Offering to cover transportation costs to and from surrounding areas, players from all over the north shore of Lake Huron combined to make the 2003-2004 Thessalon Flyers. Of these players included former Great North Midget League players Lucas Bedell and Thessalon native Jason Bird. Failing to pay for ice fees in Thessalon, coupled with failed sponsorhip deals, left the coffers of the team nearly empty and players left town, leaving the team not nearly as competitive as originally anticipated. Despite this setback, the Flyers went on to the NSHL final, losing four games to one to the Wawa Travellers. Players upset with the lack of team travel for the first two games of the series in Wawa sent management a message by refusing to report to practice the following week and neglected to show up for the next two games of the final series resulting in forfeiture of the title, and a hefty suspension levied on team owner and general manager Sacco by the Northern Ontario Hockey Association. The team has yet to return to Thessalon, as a league to play in no longer exists.

'''Sault Ste. Marie''' ( "Soo Saint Marie") is a city on the St. Marys River (St. Marys River (Michigan-Ontario)) in Algoma District, Ontario, Canada. It is the third largest city in Northern Ontario, after Sudbury (Greater Sudbury) and Thunder Bay.

While there is some debate on the exact meaning of "Sault" in Sault Ste. Marie, scholars of early French note that the word translates into ''jump'', referring to the place where one needs to "jump", or put into the St. Mary’s River. This translation relates to the treacherous rapids and cascades of the St. Mary's River, which descend more than 20 feet from the level of Lake Superior to the level of the lower lakes. Hundreds of years ago, this prohibited boat traffic and required an overland portage from one lake to the other. Thus the entire name translates to "Saint Mary's Rapids" or "Saint Mary's Falls". The word ''sault'' is pronounced

Sault Ste. Marie is bordered to the east by the Rankin (Rankin Location 15D, Ontario) and Garden River (Garden River 14, Ontario) First Nation reserves, and to the west by Prince Township (Prince, Ontario). To the north, the city is bordered by an unincorporated portion of Algoma District (Unorganized North Algoma District), which includes the local services boards (local services board (Ontario)) of Aweres (Aweres, Ontario), Batchawana Bay (Batchawana Bay, Ontario), Goulais and District (Goulais and District, Ontario), Peace Tree (Peace Tree, Ontario) and Searchmont (Searchmont, Ontario).

The city's census agglomeration, including the townships of Laird (Laird, Ontario), Prince (Prince, Ontario) and Macdonald, Meredith and Aberdeen Additional and the First Nations reserves (Indian reserve) of Garden River (Garden River, Ontario) and Rankin (Rankin Location 15D, Ontario), had a total population of 79,800 in 2011.

Sault Ste. Marie is the seat of the Algoma District.

To the south, across the river, is the United States and the city of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. The two cities are joined by the International Bridge (Sault Ste. Marie International Bridge), which connects Interstate 75 on the Michigan side and Huron Street (and former Ontario Secondary Highway 550B) on the Ontario side. Shipping traffic in the Great Lakes system bypasses the Saint Mary's Rapids via the American Soo Locks, the world's busiest canal in terms of tonnage that passes through it, while smaller recreational and tour boats use the Canadian Sault Ste. Marie Canal.

Established as one settlement (Cross-border town naming) by Jesuit missionaries (Jesuit Missions in North America) in the 17th century, the two ''saults'' remained so until after the War of 1812. "Sault Ste. Marie – history" , The North View, accessed 20 Dec 2008
