Situated in beautiful Georgian Bay at the entrance to the North Channel of Lake Huron, the picturesque Village of Killarney sits amidst the sparkling white quartzite peaks of the LaCloche Mountains and pristine waters of Georgian Bay. Founded in 1820 as a Fur Trading Post, it’s location provided a safe harbour for the Voyageurs. Killarney Village boasts the oldest community on the North Shore, but it doesn’t end there. The Municipality itself stretches over 1500 square kilometres and encompasses many lakes and rivers, including, the Key River, Pickerel River and the Heritage designated French River, in the Southeast . The Killarney Provincial Park and part of the French River Provincial Park also sit within the Municipality’s borders. Large in size but small in numbers, Killarney has a permanent population of less than 500 people, although that number increases dramatically in the summer, with the influx of cottagers, campers and tourists. The area has earned a prominent spot as a popular Canadian tourist destination for national and international travelers.
