Secondary Highway 527, commonly referred to as Highway 527 is a provincial maintained secondary highway in the Canadian province of Ontario. It is one of the longest secondary highways in the province; only Highway 599 is longer. Highway 527 spans a distance of 235.1 km (146.1 mi) from a junction with Highway 11 and Highway 17, the Trans-Canada Highway, in the community of Shuniah just outside Thunder Bay, to the small, remote community of Armstrong and neighbouring Whitesand Indian Reserve.[1]

The Gull Bay First Nation occupies one of the few permanent settlements on Highway 527, Gull Bay Reserve, situated on the western shore of Lake Nipigon about 70 kilometres south of Armstrong. The highway also passes the start of Highway 811 along its route.

Highway 527 was created in the 1950s as a forest access road and designated Highway 800 in 1963. Throughout the 1960s, the route was gradually extended until it reached what is now Highway 811 in 1969. The route was designated Highway 527 in 1976. Except within the communities of Armstrong and Gull Bay, there are no services or development along this road.
