The Parry Sound Area Industrial Park has a high degree of connectivity, supported by an extensive, local transportation network. This transportation network is capable of personal and freight movement to and from provincial, national, and international destinations, in terms of roadway, waterway, airway, and railway.
Highway 400, a major four lane portion of the Trans-Canada Highway System, connects Toronto to the Parry Sound Area and soon will be extended north to Sudbury, this is part of a $2 billion expansion project of Northern Ontario highways. This extension of Highway 400 will benefit the Parry Sound Area Industrial Park because it will directly pass the Industrial Park and there will be a new inter-change, allowing easy access for transport trucks into the Industrial Park. Currently the Parry Sound Area Industrial Park is located on Highway 69, which will soon be developed into a continuation of Highway 400. In addition to Highway 400, the community’s other primary highways, including Highway 69, 124, and 141, create a strong roadway system, providing easy access to other communities and major urban centres.
Desirable access to the St. Lawrence Seaway is provided through the Parry Sound Harbour. The harbour has a navigational season of 245 days and a channel depth of 27 feet. The Parry Sound Salt Docks is an important shipping port for the area, as it services parts of Northeastern Ontario.
The Parry Sound Area Municipal Airport is the Parry Sound Area’s local airport. With year round access to a 4000’ runway, the airport provides an efficient transportation link to other communities and international airports. Georgian Bay Airways also provides commuter services locally.
The Pearson International Airport is a mere 45 minute flight or a 2.5 hour drive from the community and services over 1,000 flights daily.
The Canadian National Railway and the Canadian Pacific Railway pass through the Parry Sound Area Industrial Park, however there is no base in the Park.
