This beautiful resort community of about one hundred and
fifty people is located in an historic and recreationally rich area
on the southwest shore of Canoe lake. Cole Bay boasts scenic outdoor
recreation and activities for the novice to the advanced adventurer
with a number of local lodges and camping areas. Located on the
original Semchuk Trail and in close proximity to numerous First
Nation Communities and historic trading routes and culturally rich
sites Cole Bay feels the strong pull of heritage and history.
The community is well known for its hospitality, and is
always ready to welcome a visitor or new resident to the area. It
sits astride a fantastic seasonal wilderness recreation area and
yet is the less recreational year round home for its indigenous
residents. Cole Bay sits near the crossroads of highways 903 and
965 and lays in close proximity to its sister communities of Canoe
Narrows and Jans bay, which lie just to the east and on the same
southern shores of Canoe Lake.
With a thriving and growing school population of youth who
look to a future filled with possibilities while respecting their
indigenous roots, Cole Bay indeed has it all. The people of Cole
Bay invite all visitors to share a living as well as a "vacation"
experience with them.
An experience they know that visitors seldom soon forget.
