Place of the white rolling sands.


Located on a picturesque bay off Georgian Bay, Penetanguishene is one of the oldest towns in what was Upper Canada. The town has played an important role, with the Penetanguishene Naval Yard and a base, which closed in 1856. Families from the Montreal area settled here shortly after the War of 1812 to participate in the fur trade, this made the region predominantly French speaking. The troops from the Naval Yard brought English to the town, making it bilingual as we know it today.

The community is diverse and inclusive. It features English and French schools, public and Catholic, although it is a small community of less than 10,000 people. Penetanguishene is even home to a francophone radio station, CFRH. On the hills that rise from Penetanguishene Bay is a community that offers quiet, tree-lined streets, many with views of the water, with homes that range in age and style, all close to schools and shopping. With a vibrant mix of language, history, music and culture, Penetanguishene offers families a community that is filled with events that celebrate history.

Two trumpet-playing angels welcome you to the Town of Penetanguishene, an Algonquin word that translates as “place of the white rolling sands.”
