Collingwood is one of Canada’s Top 20 Places To Live

Posted by Sherry Rioux on September 22, 2008

It may not be a subjective or thorough study however, Relocate- Canada has named Collingwood one of Canada’s Top 20 places to live.  It’s the second time of late that we’ve been recognized in this fashion so certainly someone is out there spreading our little secret!

Here’s what they had to say about our fair town:

“Located on the Nottawasaga Bay, at the southern shore of the beautiful Georgian Bay, and at the base of the Blue Mountain, Collingwood, Ontario is known as an all year destination.  Collingwood is easily reached by Highways 24 and 26 and is only a ninety minute drive from Toronto. There are many events throughout the year.  Many festivals, including one of the world’s largest Elvis festivals, bring visitors to Collingwood in search of a good time.  Hiking, golfing, horseback riding, fishing, rock climbing, and dog sledding are just a few of the many outdoor activities that residents and visitors enjoy in Collingwood.  The downtown has been nationally recognized as a historic place, and is the first downtown in Ontario to be given this honour.
High tech and auto industries flock to Collingwood contributing greater than 20% to Collingwood’s tax  base, ensuring jobs and growth for the area.  Collingwood has a competitive edge in bringing companies to their area.  Because of its close proximity to both Toronto and the US, companies can lower production costs, labour costs, and greater numbers of customers with access to duty free shops.”

This comes on the heels of last weeks Business In Motion meeting showing that more jobs have been created than lost in recent years and that building permits are at an all time high.   All of these good news facts certainly fly in the face of the comments made by the PGIB group who incidentally have prompted the local citizenry to rally behind the actions of the Mayor and council in welcoming CLEAN industry and who have taken a hard line on ones that are not so.

Amid all the doom and gloom in the global economy, it sure is nice to read good news, isn’t it?
