Locate, Grow, Invest in Barrie

“Barrie is affordable and accessible; it’s so close to everything. Barrie has everything that I can find in larger cities yet it has the coziness of a small town feel.” – Stella Gan, Liberty Hospitality Corporation

Barrie is an excellent location to locate and grow your business. With its diversified economy, the city continues to experience steady population and business growth.  From 2010 to 2015, Barrie’s industries grew by 8.2%, well ahead of the national figure of 5.5%.  Our sectors of strength include manufacturing, data & warehousing, food processing & entrepreneurship, and we are working to nurture our growing technology and innovation scene.

Barrie’s prime physical location and small city advantage supports your goal of achieving business success. From the cost of buying land to leasing space, real estate costs are significantly more affordable here than in the Greater Toronto Area. For entrepreneurs and businesses looking to expand their networks, Barrie’s tight knit business community supports collaboration and the ability to identify synergies among like-minded professionals. Most importantly, Barrie will offer you an envious quality of life with affordable housing options, an exciting sports scene, beautiful parks and playgrounds, and fun year-round activities for the whole family. Locate and grow the business you are passionate about, and live a life you can truly enjoy - Barrie guarantees the best of both worlds.
