Barrie

THE HEART OF SIMCOE COUNTY

The City of Barrie is one of Canada’s fastest growing and dynamic cities. Located just a 1 hour drive north of Toronto on the shores of Lake Simcoe, this is the ideal suburban community that offers modern and vibrant schools and welcoming host families. Residents of Barrie manage to achieve an important work-life balance that offers plenty of family time. With an abundance of parkland, ski and recreational resorts, a beautiful waterfront and heritage downtown this ever expanding city maintains a community-minded ‘small town feeling’, yet at the same time offers all of today’s modern conveniences - commercial, retail and recreational. With these benefits, Barrie is an ideal spot to call home.
