Orillia is also home to Ontario's newest university. Lakehead University operates a growing Orillia presence with two locations: one in the historic centre of the downtown and a main campus that includes one of Canada's most environmentally-friendly buildings at its University Avenue location in West Orillia. Combined with the bustling Orillia campus of Georgian College, and the OPP training academy, Orillia is a hub of post-secondary opportunity for its 31,000 residents, and is sure to attract and stimulate growth.



On the water, Orillia is a port-of-call on the famous Trent-Severn Waterway, a 386-kilometre system of lakes and rivers that stretches from Georgian Bay to Lake Ontario. By land, Orillia is just an hour north of Canada's largest city, offering easy access to everything Toronto offers. Orillia is ideally situated in the economic heartland of Central Ontario and is within a day's drive of 130 million customers.

The powerful combination of lifestyle and location makes Orillia a great place to live and the right place to do business.
