Map of North Central Ontario

Welcome to North Central Ontario!

Firmly planted in the heart of the Canadian Shield, North Central Ontario encompasses an area which borders Lake Superior to the south, Hudson Bay to the north and includes cities such as Thunder Bay and Nipigon. What this area lacks in population, it makes up for in rivers, lakes and parks, most notably Wabakimi Provincial Park and Pukaskwa National Park. Lake Nipigon, often called the sixth great lake, is the largest in this region and a popular angling, canoeing and camping destination. The town of Nipigon, known mainly as a mining and lumber town, is famous for its colourful murals and the Nipigon River, where the largest brook trout on record was caught in 1916. Thunder Bay is the most prominent city in the region, home to Fort William Historical Park, one of the largest fur trade post reconstructions in North America, and is where Canadian hero Terry Fox ended his run across Canada due to recurring cancer, as commerated by a 2.7-metre (9-foot) high bronze statue.
