Thunder Bay takes its name from the French ‘Baie du Tonnerre’ (Bay of Thunder), as indicated on an 18th century French map. Thunder Bay’s main tourist attraction is Fort William Historical Park, a reconstruction of North West Company’s fur trade post as it was in 1915, which attracts 100,000 visitors annually. The region has hosted many large sporting events including the Summer Canada Games in 1981, the Nordic World Ski Championships in 1995, the Continental Cup of curling in 2003 and the World Junior Baseball Championship in 2010 & 2017.
