The City of North Bay is aware there has been an increase of visible homelessness in the community which has resulted in concerns about the safety and well-being of people living outdoors in encampments, and the impact on nearby residents, businesses and the broader community. Encampments are not permitted in City parks and the City has worked with its community partners to provide outreach and respond to encampments that prioritizes health and safety. 

The City of North Bay provides funding on an annual basis to the District of Nipissing Social Services Administration Board (DNSSAB) which, in turn, funds community agencies that help people who experience homelessness and those at risk of becoming homeless. This includes emergency shelter, support services and outreach.
