We are excited to provide these services that will help to link visitors to our local businesses.  It is important to also clarify what we are not able to provide and is not part of our services:

  • Destination marketing services – We will not be providing destination marketing services and will not be actually promoting any specific business or booking any services on behalf of local businesses.
  • Telephone information – We will be operating as a visitor information location, complete with the directional signage that will bring visitors off the highway and through town right to the waterfront.  We support the position that customers calling for information should be contacting the businesses directly. Our phone number will not be published for Visitor Information.
  • Website Services – The Town of Parry Sound website currently offers a ‘Visit Us’ section. The Stockey Centre and Bobby Orr Hall of Fame Websites will continue to focus on their own lines of business.
