North Bay, Ontario (City)

Canada is a country in the northern half of North America. It is the 2nd largest country in the world in area, after Russia, and has the longest coastline of any country in the world, being next to the Pacific, Arctic, and Atlantic Oceans. Canada has the highest mountain range in the whole world. Around 30 million people live in Canada's ten provinces and three territories. Ottawa is the capital of Canada.
North Bay is a city in northeastern Ontario in Canada. The population was 52,771 according to 2001 census. North Bay takes its name from its position on the shore of Lake Nipissing and covers an area of 314.92 square kilometers. It is the seat of Nipissing district. The density is 167.6 inhabitants per square kilometers. The area was first explored by Samuel de Champlain. There was little activity in the Lake Nipissing area until the arrival of the Canadian pacific railway in 1882. North Bay is located approximately 330 kilometers to the north of Toronto, Ontario and differs in geography from Southern Ontario. This gives rise to a different and more rugged landscape.
North Bay is somewhat more economically diverse than many other northern Ontario communities, although a large percentage of the city's jobs are public sector in nature with education and government dominating the list of the city's top employers. Eventually attractions as a mini train ride and two antique carousels were installed and quickly became very popular with tourists and locals alike. This place is one of the most visited places amongst the most die hard travelers the world over. Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and gain enthusiasm in its natural beauty and populace.
