Case Study: Sioux Lookout

Sioux Lookout

Sioux Lookout is centrally located between Thunder Bay, Ontario and Winnipeg, Manitoba, serving approximately 30 Far North First Nation communities. Sioux Lookout – considered to be the hub of the north – continues to grow as the Northern Ontario epicentre for health, education, training, social services, governing agencies, recreation, housing, commerce, transportation, and more. Yet in Sioux Lookout, like much of Northern Ontario, available housing has not grown with the population growth. Sioux Lookout presents a unique opportunity to examine housing options that could be adapted throughout the region.

Sioux Lookout benefits from the positive and continually growing relationships it has with the 30,000 people and First Nation communities of the service region. The community itself is home to a vibrant and affluent population of just over 5,500 residents. The development of important regional institutions and transportation linkages as well as the development of strategic relationships that support numerous remote communities has cemented Sioux Lookout as the hub of Northern Ontario.

Abundant employment opportunities as well as the quality of life, amenities and social infrastructure in the community attract a growing workforce. Potential large-scale industrial users include transportation logistics, support businesses, resource processing and trans-shipping operations. While health care, education, and related services continue to grow, Sioux Lookout also has additional potential economic opportunities related to mining, energy, transportation and logistics. Sioux Lookout is the regional hub for the institutional and economic activity of Northern Ontario, and thus was the NHS 2018 case study community.
