City of Barrie – Growth

In this video, originally posted by Tourism Barrie in January 2015, TVO discusses our fine City, Barrie, Ontario, as one of the fastest growing cities in the country and enjoys one of the country’s lowest unemployment rates. This video looks at the secrets of Barrie’s success and what all this growth may mean for the future of the city.

Key moments are:

  • Barrie population and growth
  • words from the Mayor at the time
  • words from the MPP at the time
  • statistics and source references
  • credits


Why go back in time? We like to measure how the information and data provided then has held up. Since we’re posting this several years later, if you purchased, invested or sold, now have a comparative measure.
