Thunder Bay was once two cities, the fur trading post of Fort William and the great lakes port of Port Arthur, which merged in 1970. It is one of the world's largest grain-handling ports, connecting the vast prairie wheat fields with the Great Lakes shipping network.
The city is also a major centre for the area's forest industries, and the air gateway to the province's North West wilderness, with its remote fly-in fishing lodges and many productive mines. It is also gaining strength in the fields of education, bio-medical research, and manufacturing (particularly forest products, mass transit vehicles)
Thunder Bay is located at the western end of Lake Superior (which is why it is often referred to as the "Lakehead") and is at the geographic centre of Canada. It has a population of 109,000 (2006) and is Ontario's tenth largest city.
Thunder Bay is also on the Trans-Canada Highway, with connections to both the main route (#17) and the secondary route (#11). The city is serviced by both of the major Canadian railway systems. Just east of the city is a monument marking the point where Terry Fox had to abandon his Marathon of Hope run which was raining funds for cancer research.
Thunder Bay features a rich ethnic mosaic offering a variety of cultural and recreational opportunities, all part of the fine quality of life for the newcomer or the visitor. It has a well-educated workforce and is home to Confederation College and Lakehead University.
The city hosted the 1981 Canada Summer Games, which provided excellent recreational facilities to the community. There are a wide range of sports and recreations in both summer and winter, including the highest ski hills between the Laurentians and the Rockies.
