Northern Bruce Peninsula is a municipal corporation that commenced operations on January 1, 1999. It encompasses the former Townships of Eastnor, Lindsay and St. Edmunds and the Village of Lion's Head. Many other hamlets within NBP are Tobermory, Stokes Bay, Pike Bay, Miller Lake, Barrow Bay, Ferndale, Dyers Bay and the Lindsay 20 communities.
The Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula is the northerly neighbouring community to the Town of South Bruce Peninsula, the home of Wiarton Willie. Highway 6 traverses northerly through NBP. The peninsula itself is surrounded on the east by Georgian Bay and on the west by Lake Huron.
We are home to Fathom Five National Marine Park, Bruce Peninsula National Park, the Bruce Trail, Cabot Head and Lion's Head Nature Reserves, two First Nations Hunting Reserves and a large Bruce County Forest Tract.
NBP covers an area of 781.51 square kilometers boasting a permanent population of 3,850 year round residents. The Public Works Department maintains 475 kilometers of roads and streets, some of which are paved, some gravelled. Some roads provide year round access while others enjoy only summer accessibility.
In 2004, NBP was proclaimed as a "dark sky community" in the hope of preserving and protecting the night time environment and our heritage of dark skies through the use of quality outdoor lighting and goals estabished which are intended to stop the adverse effects of light pollution.
Let's zero in on our commercial nodes--Ferndale was once referred to as "A Dale of Ferns" developed amidst the expanses of bare rocks and fertile farmland. It is geographically located at the intersection of Highway 6 and County Road 9. Ferndale has hosted a wide variety of business ventures such as food establishments, accommodation, gas and snack bars and will continue to do so in the future. Many families call the residential element of Ferndale home. The Central Bruce Chamber of Commerce occupies the former Ferndale school on the southeast corner of Highway 6 and County Road 9.
Lion's Head is a pretty little community with a friendly, wholesome atmosphere situated on the 45th parallel, halfway between the equator and the North Pole, or just off Highway 6, east of Ferndale. A panoramic view of the harbour captures the raw beauty of the Niagara Escarpment and the pristine waters of Georgian Bay. The Municipal Marina offers a summer home or weekend getaway with slips available for most boats and yachts. You can stroll the harbourfront promenade to the sand beach at the Lion's Head Beach Park and just a short walk from there are several restaurants, retails outlets offering clothing, souvenirs, hardware, art, collectibles, pharmacy needs and a full service bank awaiting you. The biosphere reserve that surrounds the port of Lion's Head is a mecca for the outdoor enthusiast and nature lover.
Tobermory is the jewel at the tip of the Bruce. Tobermory means so much to so many...naturalists, photographers, hikers, cyclists, campers, boaters, divers simply call it paradise. It is also home to the Chi Cheemaun, the southern terminus to Manitoulin Island. Tobermory, with its quaint frame houses and two harbours, offers a quiet rural flavour. It is the core area of the UNESCO Niagara Escarpment World Biosphere and home to Fathom Five National Marine Park. So many opportunies and adventures will unfold on your visit to Tobermory whether it be the great eateries, comfortable accommodation, outdoor and underwater life, sight seeing, strolling the boardwalk or just relaxing, you just have to come north!
