Collingwood is an active lifestyle community offering: great shopping, dining, hiking & walking trails, golf, skiing, cycling, theatre, art galleries, live music, outdoor markets, and year-round cultural festivals.
Located on the southern shores of Georgian Bay, Collingwood’s waterfront provides endless opportunities for boating and fishing. Collingwood is rich in history and culture. In 1855, The Northern Railway came to Collingwood, and the harbour became the shipment point. For over 100 years, the Collingwood Shipyards built more than 200 ships, most of them Lake Freighters that could fit through the locks of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Collingwood is proud of its downtown Heritage Conservation District.
The population of Collingwood is growing as seniors enjoy an active retirement lifestyle and families and professionals are moving from the Greater Toronto area to enjoy a more balanced lifestyle and raise children. Fabulous amenities & dining, great schools, clubs, sports teams and growing tech hub make Collingwood a great place to call home!
