The New Building

The new Health Unit was designed to help us serve the public in a more functional way. We now provide all of our services under one roof, and are located closer to the downtown core for easy public access. With our new space, we offer more services such as food safety and education classes. We also have more space for our clients and community partners to use comfortably. We offer barrier-free and all-gender washrooms, as well as a family room to breastfeed or care for your child.

There is visitor parking in the Health Unit lot along the building.

Relocation Details

 Who
  • The Health Unit offices located in North Bay will be moving to a new building at 345 Oak Street West
  • This refers to all of our programs and services in North Bay, including those at 681 Commercial Street, 222 McIntyre street and 700 Cassells street
  • The branch offices in Parry Sound and Burk's Falls are unaffected by the move and will continue to operate as usual
 Where
  • The Health Unit will be moving to 345 Oak Street West
  • The location is between Cassels street and Foran street
  • Close to Marina Point Retirement Residents
  • It is an 8 minute walk from our current location
  • 5 minute walk from all bus routes due to close proximity to the transit terminal
 When
  •  Beginning May 14th, the Health Unit's new building will be open to the public
 Why
  • The new building increases efficiency and access to services
  • All of our programs are currently scattered across three buildings. Having all of our programs and services in one building will be more accessible and efficient for client
  • The new location will be more accommodating and functional for staff and community partners
  • The new location is accessible by all bus routes and is close to bike and walking paths. There is also parking available
 How
  • To ensure success of the project and financial accountability, an Accommodation Planning Committee was established at the outset, comprised of Board of Health and Health Unit Executive Team members
  • In 2014, the Health Unit purchased land for the construction of a new building with the majority approval of its member municipalities
  • The overall project was approved at a maximum cost of $20,000,000. All costing and estimates received to date are within the allocated budget
 What this means for the City of North Bay
  • With close proximity to the waterfront as well as bike and walking paths, we hope that our new location will itself promote wellness and physical activity for staff, clients and stakeholders
  • The design is welcoming and functional, and will offer more services such as food preparation and education classes
  • We will have a more useful space for our clients and community partners (meeting spaces, teaching kitchen)
  • We hope that the new building will help revitalize the downtown core and encourage the public to utilize the programs we offer
