About Us

Map imageLocated 90 minutes north of Toronto, on a peninsula jutting into Canadian paradise, the Heart of Georgian Bay proudly encompasses the quaint communities of Midland, Penetanguishene, Tay and Tiny.

Clear waters, rich forests, abundant snowfall and a glorious coastline of sandy beaches: come and discover our four-season, hidden gem. A memorable experience awaits you whether you drive, walk, cycle, snowmobile or sail. Discover National and Provincial Parks, Indigenous and Francophone culture, cherished historical sites, waterfront recreational trails, challenging golf courses, and so much more. Beaches here rival the most exotic white sand and crystal clear water you’ll find anywhere in the world. Freshwater boating, whether under power, sail or paddle, is unparalleled, and the fishing is rich. And if you think summer is where all the fun is, wait until you see how we celebrate winter.

Come and spend some time with us in the Heart of Georgian Bay, to live the #gbaylife. We live it – you’ll love it!
