Why you'd want to live in Barrie
Over the years, the City of Barrie has been one of Canada’s fastest growing and dynamic cities. Offering all the amenities one would find in a big city, combined with a spectacular waterfront, a downtown full of unique and independent retail and restaurants, parkland, recreation, the list goes on and on. Known for its friendly residents and four-season lifestyle, Barrie is situated in the heart of it all! Bordered between the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), the beautiful cottage country escape of the Muskoka's and the recreation of Georgian Bay. It’s easy to see why people have decided to make Barrie their home. Barrie residents have access to premium healthcare from the newly expanded Royal Victoria Hospital that offers specialized services not available elsewhere in our region. Adjacent to RVH is Georgian College, which boasts seven campuses, the largest being the Barrie campus.
