The Township of Georgian Bay is an area municipality of the Muskoka District Municipality, in south-central Ontario, Canada. It is located on the Severn River, where it empties into Georgian Bay. The municipal offices are at Port Severn.



The township contains the communities of Bayview Park, Big Chute, Cedar Nook, Crooked Bay, Franceville, Go Home, Honey Harbour, Macey Bay, MacTier, Moon River, Potters Landing, South Bay, Wolverine Beach and Wood Landing.

Honey Harbour serves as launching point to the "30,000 Islands" that make up the Georgian Bay geography. The islands that are accessible from Honey Harbour are dotted with hundreds to thousands of cottages. The cottages serve mostly as summer residences. Many very large cottages have been built recently, which has resulted in an increase in the property values. The economic cycle of Honey Harbour is tied to the cycle of the cottagers. Honey Harbour has a small grocery store ("Towne Centre"), a post office, a liquor store, a bakery, a Catholic church and school, a public elementary school, several small craft stores, a large resort (the "Delawana Inn") and several marinas.


According to the 2006 Statistics Canada Census:

  • Population: 2,340

  • Dwellings: 4,519
  • Area (km².): 535.48
