Barrie is ideally located, comfortably north of the GTA, and just south of the picturesque Ontario Muskoka’s. Barrie is unique as it blends elements of both of these geographies and forms a unique setting and culture that locals enjoy. The Cities metro population as of 2023 is just north of 260,000 people and continues to grow, as a choice settlement for Toronto commuters. Barrie is also home to several large regional corporate centers for TD Canada Trust, Scotiabank, BMO, Coca-Cola and IBM. No doubt this is a banking related town, and locals are encouraged to use our Mortgage Broker Barrie service to find the best possible deal on what is likely to be their biggest life expense, their mortgage. Tourism is also part of the local economy, and locals are also able to enjoy the vibrant scene that tourist dollars bring in.
