The City of Thunder Bay Archives is now accepting submissions to their online Women’s History Month exhibit. The online exhibit recognizes notable woman in our community, past and present, who have made significant contributions or notable accomplishments. The exhibit was launched in 2013 to celebrate and profile the women of Thunder Bay.

“I encourage residents to help us recognize women who have had an impact on our community,” said Christina Wakefield, City Archivist. “We would also like to celebrate the diversity of our city by hearing and honouring the stories of Indigenous women and women of colour who enrich our lives. Contributions can include those made in the arts, business, government, community life, diversity, or any other aspect of our city’s development.”

Do you know a woman whose role in Thunder Bay’s history should be celebrated? Submissions from the community are welcomed beginning Sunday, May 14, 2023, and must be submitted by July 1, 2023. In order to qualify, submissions must include a brief biography highlighting the individual’s significance to Thunder Bay along with images.

Submissions can be emailed to or submitted by mail to: City of Thunder Bay Archives, 500 Donald St. E., Thunder Bay, ON P7E 5V3.

The successful submissions will be added to the online exhibit this October, to coincide with the Status of Women Canada’s celebration of Women’s History Month.
