About North Bay

North Bay is a friendly city of 55,000 people located 345 km north of Toronto and 365 km west of Ottawa, the nation’s capital city. You’ll soon feel at home here. We’re big enough to offer a variety of sporting, entertainment and cultural events, yet small enough that people still take the time to stop and talk. You can rollerblade on the Kate Pace Way, take a cruise on the Chief Commanda, enjoy the waterfront or take in a concert at the Arts Centre. We have four distinct seasons, with different activities suited to each.


North Bay is accessible by car, plane, train or bus. Planes fly into the city at least twice a day from Toronto and Ottawa; trains and buses also have regular schedules each day. In the City, there is a full service municipal bus system that runs every 30 minutes or hour, depending on the location.
