Barrie is One of the Safest Places to Live

Barrie is the second safest metropolitan area in the country last year, according to the crime severity index released by Statistics Canada.

Barrie was the nation’s safest CMA in 2014, 2013 and 2012 – after being third in both 2011 and 2010.

Barrie Police Chief Kimberley Greenwood said the city’s consistently good safety rating can be attributed to policing fundamentals. “This statistic is attributed to the strong ties within the community, our vigilant residents, partnerships and the continuous and dedicated work of our members and those of our surrounding police partners,” said Chief Kimberley Greenwood.

So not only is moving out of the GTA great for your wallet and lifestyle, it’s better for your peace of mind as well.
