Unveiled by the Thunder Bay Community Economic Development Commission (CEDC) on April 22, 2021, “Work from Thunder Bay” is aimed to raise awareness about the quality of life in Thunder Bay and influence Canadians who may be considering relocating to smaller, rural cities.
Focused on Thunder Bay’s affordability, connectivity, quality of life, growing urban centers, and natural assets to position thecommunity as the premier place in Canada to work remotely, the remote work campaign will encourage people to move from large metropolitan areas to work from home, from Thunder Bay.
According to Thunder Bay CEDC, the Canada’s Gateway to The West is a great place to work remotely, and with office environments changing across Canada now is the perfect time to reach city professionals & workers who may be considering relocation. By encouraging more people to live and work in Thunder Bay, it could drive future growth and stability for the local economy.
As part of the campaign, Thunder Bay CEDC also worked with local photographers to obtain a variety of visual assets that highlight Thunder Bay through a local lens. The photographers were selected through a small social media contest.
