Located about an hour north of Toronto, the City of Orillia sits at the crossroads of two of Ontario’s major roadways, putting your business at the center of the action. Lake Simcoe Regional Airport, with passenger, freight, and full Canada Customs service, is just 10 minutes away.

We offer 150 fully serviced acres awaiting your business vision, and Lakehead University’s construction of a $45 million regional campus brings youthful vibrancy to the city plus a steady stream of employment candidates. A streamlined development approval process and zero industrial development charges will help you get right down to business!

Orillia is blessed with abundant and accessible natural beauty and the place to take full advantage of four-season recreational opportunities all close at hand. Nestled between Lakes Simcoe and Couchiching, Orillia also offers a waterfront playground for your staff when it’s time to unwind or do business with nature as a creative backdrop.

Orillia also offers superb healthcare at Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital, a state-of-the-art 230-bed regional hospital that recently underwent an $83 million redevelopment and expansion project.
