About Collingwood

Collingwood has a great warmth and sense of hospitality that is evident to first-time tourists, as well as repeat visitors. Our community is rich in history and culture, and we are extremely proud of our downtown Heritage Conservation District. We hope you have a chance to explore our vibrant community.

We are located on the shores of Georgian Bay, and our waterfront provides endless opportunities for boating, fishing, recreation activities and so much more!

The Town of Collingwood is ideally situated along the picturesque shoreline of Nottawasaga Bay in the heart of Ontario’s finest four-season destination area, in the northwest corner of the County of Simcoe.

Collingwood is located approximately midway between the Cities of Barrie and Owen Sound on Provincial Highway 26, which provides access to Grey and Bruce Counties in the west, and to Toronto via Highway 400 in the southeast. County Road 124 originates in Collingwood and provides access to the heavily-populated Golden Triangle to the south.

At 33.46 square kilometres of land, Collingwood is one of the smaller municipalities in area, but it has the largest population and countless amenities. Collingwood  serves as the entertainment, shopping, recreation and tourist hub. With a full transit system including links to Wasaga Beach and the Town of the Blue Mountains, Collingwood is in the centre of all the action.
