Ideas expressed by residents, businesses, elected representatives, municipal staff, and community organizations describe the kind of town in which people want to live, work, and play.

They envision a future where Innisfil balances economic growth and job creation while protecting green spaces, Lake Simcoe, and agricultural land.
