Advantage Penetanguishene

group of professional people

Through effective governance and the support of the community, the Town of Penetanguishene is a: safe, healthy, and diverse place to live, work and retire.

It is well maintained and is proud of its waterfront location on southern Georgian Bay, its history, its bilingual character, its natural environment, and its small town atmosphere, where people are friendly and look after their neighbors.

A vibrant downtown is the goal of any municipality and features multiple uses, services, and events. The presence of these attributes creates a connection and competitiveness downtown resulting in a healthy and energized community.

Council and staff are focused on providing quality services to the public in the most efficient and effective manner possible based on an accepted mission statement, with a realization that Government cannot provide everything and be all things to all people.

Services are delivered using alternative methods, including forming partnerships with non-profit agencies and neighboring municipalities, where practical to do so. A good portion of the Town’s Capital budget is spent on maintaining and enhancing the Town’s infrastructure investment.
