The beautiful town of Parry Sound, Ontario, located along the Georgian Bay, is the home of the deepest natural freshwater port in the world. This charming waterfront town has 6,500 permanent residents and approximately 90,000 seasonal residents through the summer months.
With its main industry being tourism, Parry Sound's major employment industries are accommodation businesses, sightseeing tours, and a wide variety of leisure destinations. Parry Sound is most popular during summer when tourists visit for boating, fishing, and camping in its Provincial Parks. Adventurous tourists that visit to ice fish, ski, and snowshoe, help the town thrive during the winter.
On the eastern coast of Georgian Bay, Parry Sound is just 160km from Sudbury. The Ontario Northland Motor Coach bus service stops in town three times a week on its Toronto to Sudbury route. VIA Rail's transcontinental passenger train stops at the Parry Sound station three times a week, while regular passenger and freight trains are provided by Westbound Passenger, Canadian Pacific, and Canadian National railways. Parry Sound is also serviced by a municipal airport and a waterfront airport.
