Get Involved

Do you find yourself making suggestions to friends and neighbours for change in the Community? Why not bring your skills and valuable opinions to your local Municipal Government? The City of Thunder Bay has many opportunities for citizens to get involved, gain experience, share skills, and meet new people by participating on a number of boards and committees or by volunteering. Taking an active stand on local issues and helping your community meet challenges isn’t as difficult and time consuming as you’d think, and is rewarding too!

It is very important for residents to participate in the activities of their Municipal Government. Policies and major decisions are made by City Officials with the input of residents. City Council is committed to providing a forum for input on several important community issues. You could be one of their advisors, providing valuable input on decisions that impact the lives of Thunder Bay residents.

The City Thunder Bay is committed to creating a better quality of life and making our City a great place in which to live, work and play. With your help this can be achieved.
