THUNDER BAY, ON --- August 20, 2016 (LSN) In 2016, Doors Open recognizes the city’s legacy of medical science and innovation with sites that tell the story in our community.
Lakehead University and Confederation College will be opening laboratories, simulation classrooms and research facilities. Centres for innovative health care in modern and heritage buildings and residences that once housed doctor's offices and homes are tour highlights.
Doors Open also highlights the heritage and cultural places that have shaped our community. Visitors can go behind the scenes at a working grain elevator, an old cordage facility and the storage rooms of the Thunder Bay Art Gallery.
A visit to local places of worship will reveal cultural places that have become neighbourhood landmarks and reflect the development of the city.
