An area covering portions of Grey and Bruce counties has been ranked as one of Canada’s top growth areas in 2021.

An area called “Owen Sound-Port Elgin” is ranked ninth on U-Haul’s “Top 25 Canadian Growth Cities”, a list that is topped by North Bay.

The data is compiled from one-way U-Haul truck transactions that occur across the country.

Saugeen Shores Mayor Luke Charbonneau says the study shows that his community is one of the fastest-growing in the country, and council’s focus continues to be on leveraging this growth to improve the quality of life for all that live there.
