History

Thunder Bay District was created in 1871 by provincial statute from the western half of Algoma District. Its northern and western boundaries were uncertain until Ontario's right to Northwestern Ontario was determined by the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council. Until about 1902 it was often called Algoma West from the name of the provincial constituency.

The following districts include areas that were formerly part of Thunder Bay District:
*Rainy River, created in 1885
*Kenora, created in 1907 from Rainy River District
*Cochrane, created in 1921

Population

*Canada 2006 Census: 149,063

Almost 80 per cent of the district's population lives in the Thunder Bay Census Metropolitan Area; no other community in the district exceeds 7,000 in population.
