Parry Sound is tucked among 30,000 islands on the shore of Georgian Bay. It’s located on a four-lane highway just two-and-a-hours north of Toronto. A UNESCO biosphere reserve, this year-round nature destination is also home to many festivals, events and attractions. It’s well-known for outdoor adventure and attractions, hiking trails, a Blue Flag designated beach, sports courts, a performing arts centre and museum. Its commercial district is a popular destination for tens of thousands of visitors and cottagers every summer. Parry Sound has lots of skilled labour and offers a great quality of life on Georgian Bay. The Bobby Orr Community Centre and Bobby Orr Hall of Fame honour the famous Parry Sound defenceman for the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League. Many consider him the best hockey player of all time.
