Thunder Bay Port Authority

The Port is located at the head of the Great Lakes/St. Lawrence Seaway System, a dynamic navigable waterway that stretches 3700 kilometres into the heart of the North American continent. Both the Port of Thunder Bay and the Seaway System operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from the end of March through to late-December. However, in recent years, the season has been extended as weather permits. Thunder Bay has port facilities for handling all types of cargo and is served by Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railways, as well as major Canadian trucking companies. Numerous berths mean quick and efficient turn-around time to the more than 400 ships that visit the port each year. Cargo such as grain, coal, potash, forest products, manufactured goods and dimensional cargo are shipped throughout the world via Thunder Bay's many port facilities. Visit the Thunder Bay Port Authority website for more information.

Thunder Bay International Airport

The Airport operates on a 24-hour, 7-day per week basis. The airport is located on the southwest reaches of the City of Thunder Bay, and is one of 26 National Airport System (NAS) airports in Canada.

The airfield features a significant general aviation component, with a number of on-site corporate, charter, maintenance, training and speciality aviation services companies. Some 100 fixed and rotary-wing aircrafts are based at the airport, although this number rises considerably during the busy summer season, especially in support of those forestry, mining and tourism interests who are based throughout the Northwestern Ontario hinterland.
