Barrie, is 105 kilometers (65 miles) north of Toronto.  Many people say that Barrie feels like an extension of the Toronto Metropolitan area.  Many Barrie residents, commute daily to Toronto.  Other people use Barrie as the start of a cottage holiday, or as a handy spot to break up a drive.

In the year 1812, the site of Barrie was surveyed by Captain Oliver, of the Royal Navy.  He bought the land and called it Barry.  This was named after Captain Robert Barry, who was a commander of the 15th Regiment of York.

The first building was erected in 1812, which was the Hudson's Bay Company Storehouse.

In 1832, the first Post Office opened and named Barrie, after the British Commodore Robert Barrie.  He commanded the warships in Kingston, Ontario during that year.

Barrie is located in the Northern part of the Greater Golden Horseshoe, a densely populated region of Ontario.

Once Barrie started to grow, it began to export local resources; trees, ice, etc.
