Our Community Leaders
‘It takes a village to raise a child’ is an old African proverb. Its meaning is that an entire community of people must interact with children for them to experience and grow in a safe and healthy environment. The villagers look out for the children as a collective.
Such a community view provides strength and stability to all
The same can be said for a ‘village’ such as Barrie, where our businesses, our community, our charities, and our economy are uniquely interlinked. We are not like the mega-city to our south, and most of us do not want to be absorbed into the massive GTA as has occurred to so many smaller cities, towns, and villages. Barrie, Ontario, is unique, and some of us want to keep it that way.
United we stand, divided we fall!
Below is a list of the business community partners of Barrie who support all sides of our city. They have joined with us to stand for our community, and to promote the idea of local first. These businesses are listed in alphabetical order as to their industry. Please support them as they do you.
Kayte Armstrong, DVM, CVA, M.MOSc, is certainly unique in Barrie, and as far as we know all of Canada. Not only is she a fully qualified Osteopath and graduate of the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy, she is also a highly experienced veterinarian with more than twenty years of experience taking care of both small and large animals. Her skillset is so exceptional that she is now teaching at and creating a course in animal osteopathy for her former Alma mater.
