Starting A Business Here

The Town of Parry Sound is centrally located as the hub of the West Parry Sound District. It acts as the service centre for the world renowned 30,000 Islands of Georgian Bay and is located approximately 2 hours north of Toronto, and forty-five minutes away by air. Parry Sound is the commercial hub servicing a year-round population of 18,000 and a seasonal population of 60,000 plus.

The Town is one of the few in the area that has access to full municipal water and sewer services to facilitate any development proposal, and is the only urban centre between Barrie and Sudbury along Highway 400.

The Town of Parry Sound is a great place to start a business and can compete with any other community. Not only is the Town a service centre for a large seasonal population, but it is also a great year-round destination to live, work and play.

If you wish to start a business in Parry Sound, Town staff would be pleased to help you.
