The Parry Sound Area is comprised of seven municipalities, five of which are part of REDAC (Regional Economic Development Advisory Committee) Township of Carling, Seguin Township, Municipality of McDougall, Township of the Archipelago, and the Town of Parry Sound. REDAC created their economic development strategy in 2006 and believes that appropriate economic development in one Municipality is beneficial for all five Municipalities and as such have been building their economic capacity and promoting the area as one Development Community.
