Message from the Mayor of Thunder Bay

Mayor The City of Thunder Bay is honoured to host the 2015 Northern Ontario Business Awards.

This highly anticipated event showcases the business leaders from our Northern Ontario communities. These awards recognize great accomplishments and honour the talented individuals behind them. All of the nominees are inspirational examples of the opportunities that exist within our unique region. You are the backbone behind our beautiful cities, contributing to job creation and fostering economic growth and development. We are truly fortunate to have such positive role models.

As a proud host city, we invite all delegates and guests to explore Thunder Bay during your time with us. Experience our friendly hospitality, abundance of culture and breath-taking natural highlights - the Sleeping Giant on our newly developed waterfront at Prince Arthur’s Landing is a sight not to be missed!

I would like to extend a word of thanks to the Northern Ontario Business Awards Organizing Committee for your hard work. Now in its 29th year, this annual celebration is an important forum to highlight our region’s accomplishments, provide networking opportunities and, most importantly, inspire others to achieve greatness through example.

Best wishes for another successful event. I look forward to meeting you at the Awards.
