North Bay is a small city (population of 53,970 in 2006) in Northeastern Ontario and is located between Lake Nipissing and Trout Lake. The city is minutes away from lakes and natural heritage. The City of North Bay is pursuing the management of its natural attributes and plans to protect the lakes and natural amenities that surround it.
North Bay has a relatively small mall, a handful of local heritage sites, and is home to Nipissing University and Canadore College. However, the real benefits of visiting North Bay is the landscape outside of the city.
