Located at the southern tip of Georgian Bay, Collingwood is home to lovers of the outdoors. While the area has been attracting weekenders and retirees for years, Collingwood has grown out of its ski-town beginnings and into a beautiful home for a range of demographics. Collingwood is now the fastest growing municipality east of Manitoba, according to Statistics Canada.
Known as Ontario’s Four Season Playground, Collingwood is a heritage town that sits on the edge of world-class resorts, stunning natural parks and picturesque farmland. In addition to the fresh air and clean water you just can’t find in the city, Collingwood boasts affordable housing prices that are almost half that of the Greater Toronto Area, according to the Toronto Real Estate Board. The cost of living is significantly lower, and that’s part of the reason that those who buy here usually stay.
With nature at their doorstep, young families can operate their business in a safe community. The gradual inflow has spurred new residential developments that take advantage of the town’s natural scenery.
Although just an easy drive to major cities, Collingwood feels far removed from the hustle and bustle. A quiet and quaint downtown gives off the friendly atmosphere of small town charm shaped historically by shipbuilding, railways and agriculture. Collingwood’s wide selection of restaurants, markets, orchards and vineyards provide easy access to local, fresh and artisanal foods.
Swimming, hiking, biking, skiing and snowshoeing are all nearby, along with a rich network of trails to be used year-round. The town is surrounded by recreational hotspots such as Blue Mountain and Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO biosphere reserve, making the location an outdoor enthusiast’s dream.
