Ours is a City where you can connect with opportunity, with neighbours, with nature.

The City of Barrie continues to be one of Canada's fastest growing and dynamic cities. Its location in proximity to the GTA allows for easy commuting, while still offering scenic wilderness and recreational activities right outside your door. Barrie manages to achieve an important balance; with ample parkland, a beautiful waterfront and heritage downtown, it maintains a community-minded 'small town feeling', yet at the same time continues to grow and prosper with all of today's modern conveniences. With these benefits, Barrie is not only a wonderful place to vacation, but an ideal spot to call home. 

Barrie is a desirable place to live. Beaches, hiking trails, cycling paths, fishing, boating, skiing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing are all around you. Barrie offers affordable housing, beautiful parks, low crime rates, excellent education and health care facilities, with a vibrant cultural scene that includes live music, performing arts and festivals.
