A time capsule containing items contributed by Trans Canada Trail Ontario
(TCTO), the City of Thunder Bay, St. Ignatius High School, and numerous other community agencies and partners, was buried today at Lorne Allard Fisherman’s Park.
This project was funded in part by the Province of Ontario and Ontario150 to mark the celebration of #Canada150.

“The Park is a very appropriate location, as it is the connection point between the land based Thunder Bay Trail section and the water based Lake Superior Water Trail section of the Trans Canada Trail,” said James Taylor, Risk & Asset Management Analyst.
The time capsule project was developed by TCTO to celebrate Canada’s 150th year of Confederation.
The time capsule is scheduled to be opened in 25 years, during the year 2042.
“When the capsule is opened in 25 years, it will provide an interesting reminder of how Thunder Bay contributed to creating the Great Trail, a legacy which now connects Canada from ocean to ocean to ocean,” said Iain Mettam, Trans Canada Trail Ontario Representative. “The time capsule is one of six in Ontario, with two other Northern Ontario locations in Kenora and Sault Ste. Marie.”
“The City of Thunder Bay is honoured to be part of this wonderful heritage project,” said Councillor Frank Pullia. “We are proud to work so closely with Trans Canada Trail Ontario and to have been chosen for this project.”
