As the geographical centre of North America and the largest metropolitan centre in Northwestern Ontario, Thunder Bay has a population of over 109,000 residents.

Historically, the City's location as a gateway to vast tracks of wilderness made it a strong participant in resource industries like the fur trade and forestry.

Today, Thunder Bay and Northwestern Ontario are demonstrating the capacity to build and sustain a knowledge-based economy that provides a diversity of good jobs and academic opportunities for our citizens.
