Mayor's Message

Welcome to Georgina's New Website!
 
I encourage you to explore your way through the site and see its many new features. Your input is key and we welcome your suggestions on how we can improve it even more.  Our goal is to make this site more user-friendly and within 2 or 3 ‘clicks’ let you find the answer you are seeking.
 
You will see more pictures and graphics than in the past, all with the goal to make your experience on the site more enjoyable and informative. Whether you are a resident seeking information on program registration, garbage collection or local events, we hope that you will find what you are looking for with ease.  If you don’t live here, but are considering visiting us for pleasure or business, we are certain that both your online and in-person visit will be a positive one. 
 
Georgina is blessed to be situated on the shores of Lake Simcoe with 52 kilometers of beautiful shorelines, plus the Maskinonge River, Black River and Pefferlaw River.  With numerous beautiful beaches and parks, Georgina is a favourite summer destination for those looking to get away and relax.  In the winter, you can enjoy world-renowned ice fishing, snowmobiling trails, as well as our outdoor and indoor skating rinks. But of course one of our favourite jewels is The ROC – ‘York Region’s Adventure Headquarters’ offering up winter fun including tubing, snowboarding, and tobogganing followed by a crackling fire in the chalet after a day of fun.  You can find information on all of these great things that make up Georgina right here on this site.
 
Thank you for taking the time to visit!
 
- Mayor Margaret Quirk
