Facility Closures in Effect, but Business Continues

City Hall and other facilities are closed at this time, but the City has business continuity plans in place to ensure many City services continue to be delivered. Visit for the current status of City services and please also refer to frequently asked questions.

Service Barrie remains reachable at or 705-726-4242, Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm.

Visit to apply for small building permits, pay for parking or speeding tickets, and more.

Please note: It will not be business as usual as things begin to reopen in response to Provincial regulations, and residents may see a reduced service level as the City ramps up service. It will take several weeks or longer to have service levels back up once the Province announces openings. The City will continue to maintain all essential services citizens rely on every day.
