This area had provided a waterway for timber during the 1800s, and records show that early settlements were lumberjacks and area farmers looking for winter work.

In 1945, the erection of AECL (Atomic Energy Canada Ltd) brought families and workers into this town. Deep River now houses an unusually high proportion of non-Canadians and quite a mixture of nationalities.
