Covering 2,381 square kilometres and home to more than 111,000 people, the electoral district of Simcoe North encompasses many municipalities, including Midland, Orillia, Penetanguishene, Tay, Tiny, Severn and the Mnjikaning First Nation. Simcoe North is at a historic cross-roads of our founding Canadian cultures; First Nations, Métis , French and English. A rich and diverse cultural heritage has grown here from the growth and interaction of these communities.

Attractions include the largest collection of freshwater islands in the world, Ontario`s first European fortress, the Stephen Leacock Museum, the Ontario Provincial Police Museum and Casino Rama.

Visitors to the riding will quickly learn why the area is called Ontario`s Lake Country. Major bodies of water include Lake Simcoe, Lake Couchiching and Bass Lake, which offer beaches, boating and fishing, as well as nature trails for walking and hiking. In the winter months, visitors will find kilometers of well groomed snowmobile and snowshoeing trails, as well as great ice-fishing and skating.
