Encountering Simcoe County

Simcoe County is located in the central section of Southern Ontario. Just north of the Greater Toronto Area, the picturesque county stretches from the shores of Lake Simcoe in the east to Georgian Bay in the west. Communities such as Wasaga Beach, Collingwood, Midland, Barrie, and Orillia offer many escapes from busy city life while still supporting urban culture.
The county, established in 1843, has an estimated population of 465,000 people, offering social housing, ambulance and emergency planning, environmental services, a County road system, children’s services and homes for the aged. Along with this list, a library co-operative, museums, archives, Country forest management and a Geographic Information System allow for county development.  Being comprised of 16 towns and townships, Simcoe municipalities offer clean water services, recreational services along with fire and police services.

The Economy
Tourism plays an intricate part in the economy for Simcoe and its residents. Many points of interest like Tanger Outlet mall in Cookstown, the Gateway Casino in Innisfil, and the Maple Weekend in spring present many avenues for revenue. Once a hothouse for bootleggers during Prohibition, the area now boasts several thriving alcohol producers. Wineries, distilleries, craft brewers and cideries are using locally-grown products to create some of the best beverages in North America. Come for a visit and try the taste of the season, most vendors offer full meals and a variety of beverages to take home.

As with most counties there are many small communities with welcoming people, tasty restaurants, outdoor adventures, and relaxing getaways. Enjoy the benefits of living in quaint towns that offer a sense of community, safety, and lower cost of living, all the while enjoying the perks of larger cities close-by. If you are considering a move, Simcoe County has many hidden gems for you to explore.
