Tourism Barrie Partners are Community Favourite Winners!

The results of the 2021 Community Votes Barrie are in and many of Tourism Barrie’s partners have come out on top as some of the city’s favourites!

As we already know, there are a lot of businesses offering fantastic services and experiences in Barrie and picking favourites is impossible. However every year CommunityVotes provides a platform for people to nominate and vote for anything from their favourite place to dine on the weekend to their friendly mechanic. With over 12 categories, there are a lot of winners in Barrie!

Especially in these unprecedented times, businesses from all over have had to adapt to new ways of doing things while still ensuring the same quality we have grown to love from their services. To congratulate our Tourism Barrie partner winners, we want to shed light on some of their accomplishments and recognize the outstanding businesses and services they provide us.

Here is a rundown of some of the category winners featuring Tourism Barrie partners! To see all the CommunityVotes results, look here.
