Thunder Bay Agricultural Research Station

Thunder Bay Agricultural Research Station (or TBARS) is committed to the establishment, operation, promotion, and transfer of agricultural research for the further development and diversification of the agricultural industry.

Located in the city of Thunder Bay in Northwestern Ontario, Canada (48o 22' N, 89o 22' W). TBARS has launched its new communications plan including a new logo and a website. Funding for this project was provided in part by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada through the Agricultural Adaptation Council, new items such as brochures and a new display, will be released over the next two years.

Founded by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) in 1991; the University of Guelph and Kemptville College also managed the station as a part of the research program with OMAFRA. Since 2003, TBARS has been run based on a funding agreement with the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation. Currently, TBARS has a board of directors and members called the Thunder Bay Agricultural Research Association.
