Tay Township

By: Tay Township

Tay Township—located in north Simcoe County on the southern shore of Georgian Bay—is a strong, cohesive rural community with a permanent population of 10,000. We celebrate and promote our unique history, natural heritage and recreational amenities—including our 18.5-kilometre Tay Shore Trail—as the cornerstone to our quality of life. Our unique villages and towns support a host of events, services and businesses that contribute to a growing local economy and create a unique destination experience for residents and visitors to the Heart of Georgian Bay.

Tay Township is proud to support GBBR. The Township is also a member of Partners for Climate Protection and works closely with other regional environmental organizations, including Georgian Bay Forever, Severn Sound Environmental Association and Sustainable Severn Sound.

Here are a few current projects:

Local Climate Change Action Plan

Sustainable Severn Sound is developing a Local Climate Change Action Plan. The plan will include a corporate and community inventory of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, identify GHG reduction targets, and prioritize actions to reduce municipal and community contributions to climate change. Visit for more information.

Energy Conservation

Tay Township continues to improve the energy efficiency of its facilities and processes to reduce energy consumption, operating costs, and GHG emissions. In 2018, the municipality will further invest in energy retrofits by upgrading street lights and lighting at Oakwood Park to light-emitting diode (LED) fixtures.
