Northwestern Ontario facts for kids
Northwestern Ontario is the province's most sparsely populated region — 54 per cent of the region's entire population lives in the Thunder Bay census metropolitan area alone. Aside from the city of Thunder Bay, Kenora is the only other municipality in the entire region with a population of greater than 10,000 people.
The overall population of Northwestern Ontario has been in decline over the past decade, mainly due to a downturn in the forestry sector, although some individual municipalities within the region have seen modest population growth over the period.
