County launches new engaging Economic Development and Tourism websites


Midhurst/July 19, 2023 The County of Simcoe is pleased to launch the redesigned Economic Development Office (EDO) and Tourism Simcoe County (TSC) websites. The new websites have been optimized for mobile use and improved accessibility, and they include greater functionality such as the ability to host engaging videos and imagery to reflect the EDO and TSC's evolving investment attraction and resident and business support initiatives.

“Tourism Simcoe County and our Economic Development Office continue to attract a huge amount of visitors and investment to Simcoe County," said Warden Basil Clarke. “These new sites will help highlight all the many benefits of our region to residents, visitors, business owners and potential investors."

The new, interactive Economic Development website, edo.simcoe.ca, has a focus on investment and talent attraction. The site highlights the region's outstanding quality of life and robust business community, while emphasizing our connection and proximity to the Greater Toronto area as key benefits for employers and job seekers. The site is arranged into six categories: Why Simcoe County; Invest; Sectors; Resources; News and Events; and About. The new website is also aligned with the Work in Simcoe County website featuring thousands of local career opportunities.

The new Tourism website showcases Simcoe County as a leading four-season destination for outdoor recreation, agritourism, and arts, culture, and heritage tourism. TSC has incorporated recommendations from the 2023-2026 'One Together' Destination Stewardship Plan into the new website design. Utilizing a new web platform, experience.simcoe.ca is easier to navigate, extremely attractive, and will improve search engine optimization and visitor engagement. Site users can learn about: places to go; things to do; where to stay; and events. 

The County is currently in the process of redesigning the main simcoe.ca webpage. The public is welcome to provide input into the new site by answering a brief survey. Submit your response before July 30.

County of Simcoe is composed of sixteen member municipalities and provides crucial public services to County residents in addition to providing paramedic and social services to the separated cities of Barrie and Orillia. Visit our website at simcoe.ca
