Barrie is a city in Central OntarioCanada, on the western shore of Lake Simcoe. Although located in Simcoe County, the city is politically independent. Barrie is within the northern part of the Greater Golden Horseshoe, a densely populated and industrialized region of Ontario.  The Barrie census metropolitan area(CMA) had a population of 187,013 residents, making it the 21st largest CMA in Canada.

At its inception, Barrie was an establishment of houses and warehouses at the foot of the Nine Mile Portage from Kempenfelt Bay to Fort Willow. The Nine Mile Portage is an aboriginal transportation route that existed centuries before Europeans came to Simcoe County. The portage linked Kempenfelt Bay through Willow Creek, connecting Lake Simcoe to the Nottawasaga River which flows into Georgian Bay off Lake Huron.  The city was named in 1833 after Sir Robert Barrie, who was in charge of the naval forces in Canada and frequently commanded forces through the city and along the Nine Mile Portage.  Barrie was also the final destination for one branch of the Underground Railroad. In the mid-19th century, this network of secret routes allowed many American slaves to enter Barrie and the surrounding area. This contributed to the development (and name) of nearby Shanty Bay.

Tourism plays an important role in the local economy. Barrie’s historic downtown and waterfront are at the heart of its tourism industry. Downtown Barrie is home to numerous annual festivals and events In the summer months, and the city boasts several beaches including Minet’s Point Beach, Johnsons Beach, The Gables, Tyndale Beach, and Centennial Beach. Boating in also very popular in Kempenfelt Bay and Lake Simcoe as it connects to the Trent Severn Waterway.  There are numerous winter recreation activities and facilities in the surrounding area, including skiing, snow tubing and snowboarding resorts, snowmobile trails and ice fishing. Recreational activities include skiing at nearby Horseshoe Resort,Snow Valley, Mount St. Louis Moonstone and Blue Mountain.

Barrie is home to vibrant performing and fine arts scenes. There are two main performing arts venues in the city: the Mady Centre For The Performing Arts, and the Georgian Theatre as well as the prominent MacLaren Art Centre, an innovative art gallery.  Barrie is also home to Kempenfest; one of the largest outdoor arts and crafts celebrations in Ontario.
