Why Thunder Bay

TB Regional Health Sciences Centre logoWith 2,694 employees, the largest single employer in Thunder Bay is the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre.


"To me, Thunder Bay is a logical choice. It offers so many opportunities to excel – continuous learning, research potential, incredible business development support, convenient access to an excellent network of medical professionals, and quality of life. I like that I can run what I hope will become a cutting-edge physiotherapy practice and still take my dog out in the woods and spend time with my wife in the same day." – Mike Poling, Partner, Fairway Physiotherapy Clinic
