Live the Georgian Bay Lifestyle at an Affordable Price

With artisan goods on every corner, a growing food scene, and home to Festival of the Sound - it’s easier to take part in a flourishing arts culture when you don’t have to pay exorbitant housing prices to live just 10 minutes away from it.

You can run a robust online business while living at your cottage lakefront home. There’s high speed fibre internet running through The Town of Parry Sound and Oastler Park Drive,  and a cluster of other businesses like you already there eager to support you.

Outdoor Lifestyle


Everything is nearby, so you can spend more time enjoying the outdoors.  There’s a huge network of walking, cycling, ATV and snowmobile trails to explore here – and the right kind of Ontario weather that gives you a new experience each season.

Get outside here and you get to explore the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve (a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve), three provincial parks (Killbear, The Massassauga, Oastler Lake), recreational activities on Georgian Bay (from skidooing to wakeboarding), and hundreds of inland lakes.

Access to Schools and Healthcare, and Affordable Properties

Raise your family in a small community, near good schools, Canadore College, and the regional hospital, with neighbours you really know. West Parry Sound is a safe place to live and grow a business.

Houses are more affordable than in southern Ontario communities.  The average price of a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home is $292K – around half the price of homes in the nearby GTA region ($729k) and Barrie ($439k).

You’re close to major urban centres and attractions, without having to move at a congested, rushed pace.
