Abstract: 

Thunder Bay, with a population of 109,000 people is the largest community in Northwestern Ontario, Canada. The Ojibwa were the first inhabitants of the area who led a hunter-gatherer existence and developed many technologies that aided their survival in the extremes of the environment. The hunting and fishing activities of the past have been adopted by residents of Thunder Bay as recreational activities. How can the livelihood of the once self-sufficient hunter-gatherers of the area be reexamined for today’s society? This thesis explores the parameters of food security in Thunder Bay and how architecture can support a livelihood based on obtaining forest and freshwater food.
