More Than 20% of Collingwood Residents Collect OAS

I was not surprised to read this statistic because the trend has been clear for the past decade.  Global news posted an interesting video and story on this topic yesterday and they conclude that retirees are lured to the area by the fun, four season lifestyle we have here in Collingwood.

A look at the interactive map they include on their site shows that a high concentration of retirees are also found in the surrounding areas such as Wasaga Beach, Blue Mountain and Meaford while nearby Clearview Township has less than 12.5% of their population claiming OAS.  Click on the image above and search by municipality of postal code for your area of interest.

In the video, Collingwood Mayor, Sandra Cooper makes the point that we are fortunate to have many people with great life and business experience who often join clubs, boards and committees in the area as volunteers.  I would add that, they also bring financial stability to the area and our major contributors to our community health.
