The North Bay Museum, The Heritage Railway & Carousel Co. and The North Bay Heritage Gardeners formed Heritage North Bay, a predominantly volunteer-based organization with the goal of caring for our waterfront and rail land / park developments.
The Ontario Heritage Act allows municipalities to establish a Municipal Heritage Committee (MHC). An MHC provides advice to City Council on matters and properties with architectural and/or historical significance. The Committee also evaluates properties that have heritage significance in order to develop and maintain a list of heritage properties in the community.
The North Bay Heritage Gardeners are dedicated to developing a year-round, community-based, educational, horticultural, and environmental program focusing on waterfront beautification.
Our office provides information and referral services for all aspects of immigrant support and provides a computer, photocopier, telephone and fax service for immigrants wanting to do their own research. We provide interpretation by volunteers and translation on a fee for service basis.
The North Bay Museum is located in the historic Canadian Pacific train station at the corner of Oak Street and Ferguson Street downtown North Bay. Built in 1903, the station was restored in 2004 to house the museum. The North Bay Museum Society was established in 1973 as a not-for-profit organization and registered charity to preserve and celebrate the history of North Bay. In addition to regular programming and exhibitions, the museum galleries are available to rent for special functions and provide a great view of both Lake Nipissing and downtown North Bay.
Our Club entertains a warm and friendly atmosphere. It is offered to those 50 and older and is classified as a 50+ Activity Centre. The Club is a capital cost facility under the umbrella of the City of North Bay. A Club membership includes association with the United Senior Citizens of Ontario and offers reduced rates for club activities. You do not have to be a member to take part in activities, and most activities are only a few dollars per week/activity.
The North Bay Sports Hall of Fame was founded October 20, 1977 with the purpose to "honour and perpetuate the names and deeds of those whose athletic prowess brought fame to their community and to themselves; of those whose interest in and work for sport resulted in a climate which benefitted athletes and athletics."
