  • We will encourage and recognize volunteerism, develop community networks and embrace family values.
  • As a result of our efforts, individuals and organizations will feel empowered to make positive contributions that develop a sense of pride and accomplishments as citizens of Thunder Bay.

Our target areas:

  • workplace
  • accidental falls
  • sports and recreation
  • motor vehicle
  • violence and suicide
  • schools/education
  • railway safety


  • The Thunder Bay Safe Communities (TBSC) was established in June 1999.
  • Its purpose is to make our City the safest place to live, work and play.
  • Community leaders from a variety of Government and Social agencies have come together in support of the Coalition.
  • The Coalition has developed a business plan to identify program goals, objectives, target areas and strategies.
  • Sub-committees have been developed, implemented goals and support working groups on an as needed basis.
  • The Business Plan provides an avenue for continued review of injury data, thereby ensuring the delivery of prevention programs that meet the needs of the Community.

TBSC is part of a larger safe communities movement, in association with the Safe Communities Foundation. To find out more about the Safe Communities initiative, visit the Safe Communities Foundation at
