The 50th Anniversary Committee began as the official Civic Pride Task Force in 2016. Recognizing the City was soon to turn 50, the committee revised its direction to encompass a focus on generating civic pride in time for Thunder Bay’s 50th, as well as instilling excitement for the future. 

With a focus on Thunder Bay’s people, success stories, history, culture, heritage and diversity, the committee meets to plan a variety of signature activities, including legacy projects for 2020.

The committee includes representatives from Chamber of Commerce, Lakehead University, Northwestern Ontario Sports Hall of Fame, Thunder Bay Historical Museum and Thunder Bay Public Library. In addition, Committees of Council representatives from Clean, Green and Beautiful, Sister Cities, and Official Recognition join city officials to round out the 50th committee.

The Committee will continue to meet into 2021 to oversee 50th anniversary legacy projects.
