Established in 1960, The North Bay Society of Architects (NBSA) is a non-profit organization comprised of professionals within the Timiskaming, Nipissing and Parry Sound region.  Volunteers contribute their time with the intention of creating meaningful dialogue between other architectural professionals, concerning local urban and architectural developments.

The NBSA is comprised of local licensed architects and technologists, students of architecture and affiliates serving to further the recognition and understanding of architecture, and the architectural profession, within the surrounding community. The NBSA is a Society of the Ontario Association of Architects, assisting in furthering the objectives of the Association in accordance to the Architects Act.
