Mayor's Welcome

Mayor ClarkeThe City of Orillia, known as the "Sunshine City," is the perfect setting for your business. 

We are located in the heart of Ontario's Lake Country - a picturesque, four-season playground, an hour north of the Greater Toronto Area - on the shores of beautiful Lake Simcoe and Lake Couchiching.  

Orillia is also situated in the economic heartland of Central Ontario, for a powerful combination of lifestyle and location - a great place to live and the right place to do business.  

The City is proud to offer fully-serviced lands, with zero industrial development charges until June 2021. We have also undertaken a number of measures in recent years to reduce red tape for developers and property owners.  

Orillia features two bustling post-secondary campuses, the OPP General Headquarters, a strong manufacturing sector and a number of support organizations to assist your business from start-up to expansion.  

To top it all off, Orillia boasts an unrivaled quality of life for you and your employees.  

We are a City full of culture, arts and recreational opportunities - home to the Mariposa Folk Festival, the Orillia Opera House, the Stephen Leacock National Historic Site, a unique heritage downtown, beautiful waterfront and an ever-expanding lineup of festivals and events.  

We look forward to talking to you about making Orillia part of your business!
