The City of Thunder Bay is committed to fostering an inclusive city focused on providing a high quality of life to all citizens of Thunder Bay.  As we continue to embrace and celebrate our diversity it makes our community a vibrant and dynamic inclusive place to grow for everyone.

Celebrating culture

Thunder Bay is home to a diverse population of cultures and we would like to acknowledge those cultures and celebrate and honour those traditions together. Education is a key to understanding one another, reducing prejudices and racism as we continue to move forward towards a more inclusive city. Let’s celebrate culture, learn and grow together!

Indigenous reading list

Educating ourselves is a first step in learning and unlearning behaviours and to continue being part of the solution towards building a safe and inclusive community that we can all be proud of.

The Indigenous Reading List is a collaborative project between Indigenous Relations and Inclusion, City of Thunder Bay, Confederation College Library and Thunder Bay Public Library. The reading list is one methodology for which the aformentioned organizations are responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions' Call to Action #57 - Professional Development and Training for Public Servants and #2 Education and Reconciliation.

We hope that these selections will help in the learning journey and invite conversations in building new understandings.
