Thanks to their participation in the Community Leaders Program we are able to enhance areas of content in Barrie that were underserved in the past. Georgian International proudly supports Then and Now, which shares historical photos and personal stories of past people, places, and events and connects them to their significance today.


GEORGIAN INTERNATIONAL established 1981

Georgian International is one of Simcoe County’s most influential companies and recognized names. We are known for our uncompromising commitment to growth and profitability, and for making a positive contribution to the communities in which we operate. At Georgian International, we consider our culture to be one of our strengths. We have a performance-oriented environment that emphasizes high-integrity business practices combined with work/life balance. Our culture has been principally built around two important attributes — passion and drive.

These attributes have shaped the foundation of our corporate principles, are the root of our collective success and are the reason we attract and retain highly loyal employees — employees who are ‘passionately driven’.
