Located an hour and a half from Toronto, the Township of Georgian Bay is the essence of cottage country. We benefit greatly from our location along the eastern shore of Georgian Bay, with a multitude of inland lakes, a gateway to the world-famous 30,000 Islands and the access point to Georgian Bay Islands National Park. Steeped in history, our cultural roots are an important part of our community. This history includes locks along the Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site and the 1890s Bressette House

Traversed by Highway 400, the Township is travelled through as heavily as it is visited. Our seasonal population of 15,958 people complements our modest permanent population of 2,124. The more populated and urbanized areas include the communities of Honey Habour, MacTier and Port Severn.

A community of communities, Georgian Bay reflects a variety of diverse perspectives and needs, from seasonal and permanent populations to local businesses and tourism industries. At the centre of this is the municipal administration and Township Council, who balance the needs of the municipality as a whole and ensure a sustainable and thriving future for residents, the economy and visitors.
