North Bay, Ontario has been historically considered the “Gateway of the North”. One of the greatest things about living in North Bay is the quality of life: located between two large lakes our city has forests, rivers and even a small waterfall. Just a 3-hour drive from Toronto and a 3.5-hour drive from Ottawa, the opportunities that exist in North Bay combine the beauty of nature with the chance to grow, learn and develop as a professional in an economically diverse city.
There are many unique and interesting things about North Bay. The waterfront on Lake Nipissing is home to a passenger cruise boat called the Chief Commanda II and features the Heritage Railway & Carousel Company. The waterfront area is a focal point in North Bay for both tourists and residents. There is a marina for boats, beautiful gardens and lots of park space to play and beaches to swim in.
