Business & Employer Data Directory

The City's Business & Employer Data Directory includes a comprehensive listing of current Barrie workplaces and information about key sectors and employment in Barrie.

Data are collected annually. The goal of the survey is to collect up-to-date business data and create a comprehensive list of all Barrie businesses operating in the City’s employment and commercial areas that can be broken down by industry.

Many municipalities across Ontario conduct annual Business Data Surveys to monitor economic trends, create a detailed listing of businesses and use the data to inform internal policy and decision making.
