Welcome to A Bit of the Bay Magazine, a multi-media story-telling enterprise focusing on North Bay, Ontario, Canada. Our goal is to intertwine heritage features with current issues, stories and events.

This glossy colour print magazine is published at the beginning of each month. The inaugural issue hit the streets of North Bay Sept. 1, 2019.

More than one platform:

The magazine is one division of A Bit of the Bay Productions, a partnership between Dave Dale and Jeff Fournier, the originator of the A Bit of the Bay Facebook Group that has grown to more than 14,800 members. Almost daily posts of old photos, advertisements and videos are shared there with members adding comments (strictly monitored by the administrator) to reminisce about days gone by and reconnect with long-lost friends.

Our website is a go-between for the Facebook Group and print product. Stories will sometimes grow online there before the polished piece is told in ink while the Video Page will feature interviews that become the basis for some magazine stories. It’s also a meeting place to find all kinds of video productions about the Gateway of the North.

We print 6,000 copies and distribute them in strategic locations so the advertisers benefit from the circulation. The plan, however, is to build up a subscription base and integrate retail sales.
