Minister Blair officially opens new Health Services Centre at CFB North Bay
October 20, 2023

Today, the Honourable Bill Blair, Minister of National Defence, officially opened the new, $22 million Health Services Centre at 22 Wing/Canadian Forces Base North Bay. This new facility provides our troops with a wider range of faster, higher quality care, increasing their availability for operations.

This state-of-the-art 2,100 m2 Health Services Centre consolidates all medical, dental, and mental health services at the Wing into one centrally located facility. It replaces the old Health Care Centre built in the 1960s as a barrack block, which the Wing has outgrown given the increasing number of Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members in North Bay.

Previously, 22 Wing North Bay’s aging health services facilities were located at several locations throughout the base, limiting easy access to a wide range of medical services needed by our personnel. Now in one location, this modern medical facility will provide care by civilian and military doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, medical technicians, mental health professionals, dentists, physiotherapists, pharmacists, and administrative staff.

This project sustained approximately 50 jobs during the construction phase, and was built to LEED Silver standards, which will contribute to the federal government’s target of being carbon neutral by 2050. National Defence has reduced greenhouse gas emissions from its buildings and non-military vehicles by 35.9% across Canada, compared with 2005 levels.

As highlighted in Canada’s Defence Policy, Strong, Secure, Engaged, the Government of Canada is committed to providing our CAF members with modern and green facilities to support their health and wellbeing.


“One of my top priorities as Minister is to support the health and wellbeing of Canadian Armed Forces members. The completion of this new, modern Health Services Centre is an important milestone for CFB North Bay – and will ensure that our personnel receive timely and high-quality medical care. We will continue to make investments in Defence infrastructure to increase our readiness and support the women and men of our military.”

The Honourable Bill Blair, Minister of National Defence


“The new Health Services Centre at CFB North Bay is an important step forward for Canadian Armed Forces members deployed in our community. This federal investment of $22 million will considerably improve the health care provided to members at CFB North Bay, and demonstrates our commitment to supporting the people of our military.”
