The seat of Nipissing District is North Bay, the city that bears its name due to its location on the shore of Lake Nipissing. It’s also settled on the traditional territory of the Nipissing First Nation people and today it's an area more than 52,000 residents call home. 

In the early days, this area of North Bay was located on the main canoe route due west of Montreal. There wasn’t much activity going on in this area all until the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1882. The railway brought important people, two of them being the owner of CPR, Duncan Mclntyre and his nephew Jon Ferguson. Ferguson was convinced that the north bay of Lake Nipissing had great potential for a new settlement.  So the town of North Bay was incorporated in 1891. 

During the construction of the Temiskaming and Northern Ontario Railway (T&NO) in 1902, silver was discovered in the Cobalt area, which started a mining frenzy that went on for years. 

Oddly enough, the birth of the Dionne Quintuplets made a great impact on the economy of the area, the girls became a tourist attraction that drew people to the town throughout the duration of the Depression. As a result, the word spread about North Bay’s other tourist attractions – lakes, forests and summer retreats that helped local businesses survive in times of crisis. 

Because of the increased level of tensions between North America and the Soviet Union, the Royal Canadian Air Force built an air base at North Bay in 1951.  It became the largest industry in the area and remained such for 4 decades. It was later upgraded to the North American Aerospace Defence Command in 1981, which is still used as an emergency landing site for several international aircraft and a designated emergency field for NASA's Space Transportation System.

Today, North Bay’s prime economic engines are the university and college population along with the North Bay Regional Health Centre. North Bay is extremely dedicated to ice hockey, for which it received the 2007 Kraft Hockeyville contest award. 

Similar to the rest of Northern Ontario, North Bay has a less humid climate than Southern Ontario because it’s further away from the Great Lakes. The hottest month is July, when the average temperature is around 24 degrees celsius, while the coldest month is January, with -17 degree celsius average temperatures.

Local Scoop

The city of North Bay is filled to the brim with active people, full of enthusiasm and life. The reason is pretty clear. Lake Nipissing is where locals usually fish and boat as a leisure activity. There are many sport fishing lodges where the most capable of fishermen gather up to hunt specific fish like the Smallmouth Bass, either as a passtime or in competitions. The fishing scene is so important that numerous associations are trying their best to keep the population of Walleye in check. Being such a thriving community, people usually use local products, be that handcrafted goods, freshly grown veggies, meats, a whole lot of fish, homemade jams, or baked goods. The locals get them from the North Bay Farmers’ Market, where a variety of people come to buy the best goods they can possibly get. That’s also the place where all the locals come to sell their hard work.

In the winter, the whole situation changes. We all know Canada has great winters and North Bay is no exception! During that time of the year, people usually gather up at the Laurentian Ski Hill with their skis, sleighs, and snowboards. The Laurentian Ski Hill has something for everyone. If you want to do the most obvious thing and ski all day, or enjoy a warm cinnamon coffee on a snowy day with some comfort food, there are options for everyone's taste. There are beginner hills and more advanced hills for everyone’s level of experience. Also, you don’t even need to buy your own equipment, you can just rent whatever your heart desires there, which is quite convenient. 

If you are more of an outdoors kind of person, North Bay has something for you too! The Laurier Woods Conservation Area is located right in the center of the city and is quite big indeed. A network of trails with a length of over 6 miles made up of rocky outcrop, upland forests, and wetland will fill you with fresh air and stretching those muscles you forgot you had. More than that, you will see the home of many inhabitants of the woods: small critters, wetland creatures, and at certain times migrating birds. So drop your phones, put on those hiking boots (or sneakers I am not judging) and enjoy nature for a bit.

If culture is more your thing, the wonderful city of North Bay has that too! A small railway station was turned into the North Bay Museum in 2004 and is there for you to admire. Between Tuesday and Saturday, you will learn about all the influential people that made their mark on North Bay, along with all the history of the city. If you don’t want to explore the museum alone, a guide will explore it with you, and explain to you everything it has to offer. As any proper museum, the North Bay Museum has a small gift shop so you can buy a token for your friends back home. Even more so, the North Bay Museum is a not-for-profit, so every little penny helps keep all the city’s history alive.

North Bay has several education options ranging from pre-school to university. There are 4 district school boards providing public and Catholic education in both French and English. Post-secondary education is provided by 3 post-secondary optons:  Nipissing University and Canadore College which have the main campus, and CTS, Canadian Career College, that offers post-secondary certificate programs and concentrated diploma programs.

The transportation network in North Bay is part of the Trans-Canada Highways, more specifically Highway 11 and Highway 17, both leading into the city through a single route. There is also an airport that serves the military called North Bay/Jack Garland Airport. North Bay railway station is the heart of the intercity bus service, while the public transit system is provided by North Bay Transit.
