"I can honestly say that the decision to locate in North Bay was made easy due to the hard work, drive and assistance from all levels of government. It is absolutely amazing that growing the economy and creating jobs aren’t mere slogans but goals, proven with the assistance and support in getting this investment here.”

In addition to its low industrial tax rate, North Bay offers several financial incentive programs that help offset both operating and capital project costs. Our industrial parks offer fully-serviced land at attractive prices, choice of location and size of parcel, combined with Municipal, Provincial and Federal incentives.
