Living in Orillia
The City of Orillia is nestled in the heart of Ontario's lake country on the shores of Lake Simcoe and Lake Couchiching.
Boat launches, beaches and historic monuments compliment the beauty of our waterfront. The natural and tranquil splendor of our lakes makes us the perfect place for those who like to run, cycle, boat, golf, and ski.
The City of Orillia also boasts one community college (Georgian College) and two universities (Laurentian University and Lakehead University).
Our downtown offers visitors and residents a wide variety of shopping and dining opportunities, while our heritage sites (most notably the Stephen Leacock Museum) offers visitors a glimpse into our history.
We hope that you take the time to visit us in the Sunshine City!
