About Orillia, Ontario

Orillia is less than 90 minutes from the Greater Toronto Area. Even though growth and progress have been strong in recent years, the Sunshine City has worked hard to retain the small-town charm that has captivated generations. There are many opportunities to experience the history of the Orillia area such as at the Stephen Leacock Museum and the Orillia Museum of Art & History. The artists of the area are famous for pottery, sculpture and painting. The heritage of the area is also enriched by the traditions and art of the First Nations Peoples. Wye Marsh (for nature lovers), St. Marie Among the Hurons, and Discovery Harbour are only a very few of the interesting features in the area. A visit to the area is not complete without visiting Mariposa Market, the Trans Canada Trail, Casino Rama, and the Farmer’s Market every Saturday morning.

Orillia is also home to Ontario’s newest university. Lakehead University operates a growing presence in Orillia with two locations: one in the historic centre of the downtown and a main campus in West Orillia. Orillia is an enchanting place to visit, a great place to work, an ideal place to do business, and a wonderful place to live.
