Unlike other parts of the country, Northern Ontario was built on jobs.
Towns and cities sprung up because there was work in the mines or the mills or in the forests or on the railways.
Since CBC signed on in the northeast 40 years ago, the focus has been on diversifying the northern economy... and moving away from resource industries.
But what about the next 40 years? Where will northerners be getting their paycheques in the year 2058?

Securing outside feedstock is the key to a faster restart of a cobalt refinery in northeastern Ontario.
First Cobalt recently announced that it's in discussions with "several parties" to obtain an outside supply of feedstock that could help finance the restart of its mill near the town of Cobalt.
The Toronto junior miner is evaluating all aspects of how soon to reopen the shuttered operation it purchased in 2017, and position it as a toll milling facility.
New pipes filled with Huntsville's wastewater could now snake their way under residential roads.
District of Muskoka engineering and public works committee members heard in September that ongoing plans to decommission the downtown Mountview sewage treatment plant and divert all wastewater to the Golden Pheasant plant off Highway 60 would require new force main pipes to push waste out of town.
Kate Carmack, the Indigenous Yukon woman who played a significant role in the discovery of gold in the Klondike more than a century ago, will finally take her place in Canada's Mining Hall of Fame.
Her induction comes two decades after four men — including her husband, brother and nephew — were added to the hall of fame and credited as the "Klondike discoverers" who first found gold in Bonanza Creek in 1896, and ultimately sparked a gold rush.

Toronto-based Kirkland Lake Gold produced 180,155 oz. of gold in Q3 2018 — above target and a record quarterly output. The Macassa, Holt and Taylor mines in Northern Ontario collectively produced 89,537 oz., and the Fosterville mine in Australia turned out 90,618 oz.
Production for the first nine months of 2018 totaled 492,484 oz. of gold, 15 per cent above the same quarter a year earlier. Guidance for the full year is 635,000 oz.

When Bob Wares was growing up in Montreal he loved collecting rocks and dreamed about becoming a geologist.
Mr. Wares studied earth sciences at McGill University in the 1970s and went on to a 35-year career in mining which included discovering one of Canada's large gold deposits in Quebec and another major gold find in Arizona. Over the years, he's become increasingly concerned about the dwindling number of geologists in Canada and he began donating to McGill's Earth and Planetary Sciences department.
Want to better understand collapsing ice sheets? Then pay attention to the snap, crackle and pop of your breakfast cereal, Australian scientists say.
Researchers have long known that porous materials can crumble under pressure or be dissolved by fluids over lengthy timescales. But in many natural systems — such as ice sheets, rockfill dams or sinkholes — these materials are exposed to both liquid and high pressures at the same time, meaning that collapse events can get a little more complicated.
