Collingwood, Ontario, Canada

The Town of Collingwood is located on Nottawasaga Bay at the southern end of Georgian Bay, 55 km northwest of Barrie. It was incorporated as a town in 1858.

The Ontario, Simcoe and Huron Railway, later part of the Canadian National Railway, arrived in 1855. Along with its excellent harbour, surveyed by Sandford Fleming, the railway made Collingwood an important shipping port. From 1883 to 1986 it was the shipbuilding centre for the Great Lakes. The harbour has now been transformed with gardens and interpretive walkways.
