The Frozen Northwest: Winter in Northwestern Ontario

January 2 – April 29, 2018

Winter has always been, and continues to be, a part of life in the unforgiving landscape of Northwestern Ontario. From the area’s Ojibway inhabitants to settlers in Thunder Bay’s industrial heyday, the people who lived here have not only adapted to winter in their daily lives, they have thrived in it. They have found ways of living comfortably, working in harsh conditions, moving from place to place, as well as ways to have fun in the long, cold winter.
