The Clean, Green & Beautiful Committee works to develop a common vision to enhance the function, look and feel of where we live, work and play. This is achieved through public art, beautification, heritage and environmental greening initiatives, all geared towards the goal of enhancing civic pride.

The Committee formed after City Council endorsed a Clean, Green and Beautiful Policy, developed during more than a year of research, discussion and hard work by the Mayor's Task Force on Civic Pride.


  • To establish a long-term plan that will provide for the future of Thunder Bay's beautification
  • To identify and prioritize short- and long-term projects to enhance the image of the City
  • To identify and recommend private and public sector investment strategies and resources to implement projects
  • To engage the community in a civic pride campaign to support the Committee's shared understanding that Thunder Bay is a great place to live, work and play
