About Northern Policy Institute

Northern Policy Institute is Northern Ontario's independent think tank. We perform research, collect and disseminate evidence, and identify policy opportunities to support the growth of sustainable Northern Ontario communities.

Our operations are located in Thunder Bay, Sault Ste. Marie and Sudbury to enhance Northern Ontario's capacity to take the lead position on socio-economic policy that impacts Northern Ontario and Canada as a whole.

What makes Northern Policy Institute unique is our independent and non-partisan approach to policy analysis. This means that our assessments of the current and emerging issues facing Northern Ontario are always objective and provide balanced perspective to public and private sector decision-makers.

The work of Northern Policy Institute targets six priority areas:

  • Communities
  • Demographics
  • Economy
  • Environment
  • Indigenous peoples
  • Infrastructure
