North Bay

North Bay is geographically unique. It straddles the Ottawa River watershed to the east and the Great Lakes Basin to the west. The region’s urban core is located between Lake Nipissing and the smaller Trout Lakes. In recent years, the city’s cultural scene has expanded due to its community of artists, musicians, actors and writers. In 2004, the TV Ontario program Studio 2 named North Bay as one of the top three most artistically talented communities in the province.
