The location of these communities is to the north of southwestern Ontario along the Nottawasaga Bay.

Southern Georgian Bay is an attractive location for residents and tourists alike. One of the area’s highlights is Blue Mountain Ski Resort which, along with skiing, snowboarding, and tubing in the winter, offers a great place to hike, bicycle, golf, or participate in a variety of summer camps. The ski resort is near both the town of Blue Mountains and Collingwood. Both places are unique in that Blue Mountains has more of a small-town feel with a population of just over 6,000, while Collingwood is more similar in size to a small city, with a population of around 20,000.
North of Collingwood and Blue Mountains are Meaford and Thornbury. In population, these towns are around 11,000 and 6,000 respectively. Meaford is a great place for those interested in arts and culture, as it has a thriving recreation community that includes activities such as dance lessons, yoga classes, cooking classes, youth programs, and even houses a museum. The library has many additional programs to offer. In Thornbury, there is plenty to do as well. It is easy to find a place to hike or snowshoe, and there are many other outdoor and physical activities in which to partake such as climbing and water sports.
The town of Wasaga Beach is found further down the Nottawasaga Bay shoreline and is home to approximately 18,000 people. The town is on a beach which happens to be the longest freshwater beach in the world! Wasaga Beach has great youth programs and hosts many festivals and events throughout the year. Wasaga is a good place for those wishing to cultivate their interest in the arts. Of course, there is also no shortage of things to do for those that love the outdoors. Plenty of water sports, sports, and adventuring are available in Wasaga Beach.
The Blue Mountains, Collingwood, Meaford, Wasaga Beach, and Thornbury all have great schools. The Bluewater District School Board and the Simcoe County District School Board share the area and have many elementary and secondary schools from which to choose. Many academic and extra-curricular opportunities are available to students through both school boards.
