Welcome to Terrace Bay – Dr. Sarah Peters

Read More
The North Shore Family Health Team in collaboration with The North of Superior Healthcare Group are pleased to announce the signing of Dr. Sarah Peters. Dr. Peters has been a long-time locum physician for our communities and we are ecstatic that she has chosen to bring her wealth of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to our team at the Aguasabon Medical Clinic in Terrace Bay in a part – time capacity this spring. We hope that the community of Terrace bay will join us in providing a very warm welcome to our new local physician.
• Dr. Lindsay McLeod and North Shore Family Health Team
“After a decade of coming to Terrace Bay and Schreiber as a locum physician, I’m pleased to be officially joining the NOSH group in a part-time role. Over the years, I’ve built relationships with patients and the community. It felt like a good time to commit. I am an addicted cross-country skier and outdoor enthusiast. I enjoy running the many trails around town and along the Casque Isle trail. Over the last two summers my family and I have also started exploring the Lake Superior coast in our big red canoe! NOSH is the perfect place to work hard and then be minutes away from an after hours run, ski or fishing trip. Plus, I’m looking forward to gardening in the new town garden boxes!! Go Terrace Bay!”

New! Nipigon 1 Police Service Board Vacancy

Read More

The Township of Terrace Bay is now accepting applications for the New - Nipigon 1 Police Service Board.

What is a Police Services Board?

The new Comprehensive Ontario Police Services Act, 2019 comes into effect on April 1, 2024. The Police Services Act (PSA) requires municipalities to provide adequate and effective police services and to maintain a Police Services Board (PSB) for general oversight for the provision of police services in the community.

Detachment Level Joint Boards

With the renewal of the Act, changes have been made to switch to detachment level PSB’s rather than individual /municipal.  Given the physical size of the area served by the OPP Nipigon Detachment, a proposal was submitted to have two police service boards for the Detachment, rather than one.  The proposal was that Schreiber, Pays Plat and Terrace Bay be serviced through one joint board (“Nipigon 1”) , and that Nipigon, Red Rock, Dorian and the Red Rock Indian Band (“Nipigon 2”) would be serviced through a second joint board.[1]  The two-board proposal was approved in 2023.

The Regulation to allow the new boards is in progress, and it is anticipated that it will be passed before the end of March.  This is in anticipation of the replacement of the (current) Police Services Act with a new piece of legislation, called the Community Safety and Policing Act, 2019.  The legislative changes require the member communities to appoint a Board in-full effective April 1, 2024.
