living and playing in barrie

This is the most generous community in the country. Barrie residents rally. They respond to needs. They turn out to make a difference.

We have hundreds of charities in this city and they are all well supported, even though we’re not what I would call a wealthy community. I love Barrie for this.

I also love Barrie for its lack of definition. This is a community where people live side by side, not tightly defined by economic income, but instead by effort, by contribution, by commitment.
