Welcome to Our Municipality!

On Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada

The Municipality of Gordon / Barrie Island was established in 2009 with the amalgamation of the municipalities of Gordon and Barrie Island, but the roots of both places go back to the late 1800's. Spanning over 250 kilometers with a year-round population of around 500, our municipality is best known for its rich agricultural history that's still thriving today. They make their home and cottages here. Come visit us sometime and see for yourself why many people value and appreciate Gordon/Barrie Island for hunting, sport fishing, farming, starting businesses, raising families, and enjoying retirement. With a wide range of natural beauty including limestone cobble shores, rolling pastures, bur oak prairies and inland lakes, there's no place quite like Gordon/Barrie Island.
