People who live in Orillia experience the best of both worlds. Orillia is less than 90 minutes from the Greater Toronto Area. Even though growth and progress have been strong in recent years, the Sunshine City has worked hard to retain the small-town charm that has captivated generations.

In fact, Orillia has learned to look to the future while celebrating its past. Quality of life is unbeatable in this city surrounded by two lakes, where outdoor pursuits are available in all seasons and are enjoyed by both visitors and residents.

Residents have access to an excellent hospital as well as a range of other public services, including a new state-of-the-art recreation complex, and a brand new public library, which complement a community that also boasts a thriving, historic downtown.

Orillia is also home to Ontario's newest university. Lakehead University operates a growing presence in Orillia with two locations: one in the historic centre of the downtown and a main campus in West Orillia.

Opportunity abounds in Orillia where major employers include the Ontario Provincial Police Headquarters, Casino Rama and Nordia.

Orillia is an enchanting place to visit, a great place to work, an ideal place to do business, and a wonderful place to live.
