Welcome to the NEW Barrie.ca!

We’ve flipped the switch to the the City of Barrie’s new website and YOU are one of the very first visitors! 

As you'll see when you look around, the website is brand new. Some of the new features and functionality include: 

  • Cleaner navigation and filtering options that allow you to sort the information you're looking for. 
  • Site-wide alert messages, so if the City were to experience an emergency, website visitors will see an alert at the top of every webpage with emergency-related information.

User feedback was key to this website’s redevelopment and we want to thank everyone who participated in the survey and user exercises. We received over 1,200 responses which helped inform the new navigation and content placement. The launch is just the first step in bringing you a new website. We’ve listened to your input and will keep looking for user feedback, so we can continuously improve. 

Have a look around the new website and enjoy your sneak peek! The site is still rolling out to all users and will reach different people at different times, depending on their internet provider and connection. We will officially launch very soon!
