Collingwood is located in southern Georgian Bay, and is part of “Ontario's Playground” along with the Blue Mountains and Wasaga Beach. Live life outdoors all year round, from the shores of the Nottawasaga Bay (an inlet of Georgian Bay) to the ski hills on the Niagara Escarpment. This is a wonderful place to call home.

The Collingwood Terminals Limited, an iconic landmark since 1929, marks the spot of the Historic Commerce of Agriculture and Shipping. Known for shipbuilding from 1882 - 1986, the Collingwood Shipyards were located at the foot of Hurontario Street, now known as Side Launch Way, and is a massively successful new development. The Shipyards offers a range of high-end town homes for sale as well as waterfront condos for sale.

Collingwood is home, a home away from home, and a tourist destination. The population swells in the peak winter and summer seasons, with the numerous outdoor activities the area has to offer. Winters in the Georgian Bay area are made for skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and so much more. There is never a dull moment in this scenic area. Collingwood boasts a large number of hiking trails, most of which remain open in the winter months. These trails offer a scenic view as you hike, bike, or stroll along them, close to your doorstep from the lovely single family homes nearby. During the summer months there are plenty of locations ideal for swimming, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, and sailing.

Picturesque downtown Collingwood features many shoppes, boutiques, and art galleries to suit the diversity of people who live and visit the area.
