Based on his exploration and survey work in the Northern Ontario region, in June 1933 DND set up a headquarters in North Bay to supervise construction of emergency landing fields for the Ottawa to Port Arthur (Port Arthur, Ontario) (now Thunder Bay) portion of the Trans-Canada Airway system. An eighteen-man unit operated out of the Dominion Rubber Company building, leased on Oak Street, downtown North Bay, which served as their headquarters, supply depot and living quarters. Unemployed men in each local district were hired as labour. Despite the primal ruggedness of Northern Ontario, by July 1936, eight airfields had been hacked out of the wilderness, at Reay, Diver, Emsdale (Perry, Ontario), South River (South River, Ontario), Ramore (Black River-Matheson, Ontario), Porquis Junction (Iroquois Falls, Ontario), Gilles Depot and Tudhope (named after the squadron leader), and the unit was disbanded. (Most of these airfields have since been abandoned to the wild.)

It grew into an important transportation hub with its port forming an important link in the shipping of grain and other products from western Canada, through the Great Lakes and the Saint Lawrence Seaway, to the east coast. Forestry and manufacturing played important roles in the city's economy. They have declined in recent years, but have been replaced by a "knowledge economy" based on medical research and education.
