Everyone has a goal or a dream for themselves, their family or their community. SHIFT brings the under forties together to turn goals and dreams into reality. We socialize, mobilize, and realize our potential to drive ourselves, each other and Thunder Bay forward.  


SHIFT is an incredibly diverse group of young people representing many professions and backgrounds. From business owners, entrepreneurs and trades people; to students, health specialists, and government employees, the uniqueness and connectedness of our members sets us apart. Every SHIFTer shares a common value that we believe in what’s next for Thunder Bay and we want to help drive the community forward. 


SHIFT is led by a 12 member Executive and Board of Directors.


SHIFT brings the under 40 demographic together to socialize, mobilize and realize personal, professional and community development.



To retain and attract young professionals in Thunder Bay, and support young professionals to realize their goals while making a positive impact in the community.
