Here is another guest post in our continuing Your Stories series where clients share their reasons for choosing South Georgian Bay as their new home.  Today, Peter Dillman from Saskatoon shares his family’s story.

When Krista finished graduate school ten years ago, we moved from Waterloo to Saskatoon with our dog, a few boxes and $300 to our name.  Our criterion for picking the city we moved to were; somewhere we had never been before, and the soonest possible starting date for a job for Krista, (see previous reference to bank account)

Ten years later, we are moving back to Ontario with two children, two dogs, a cat, a houseful of furniture, a bit more than $300 (but not much more) and more stringent criterion as to our destination.

After much searching, both of the map and our souls, we settled upon Collingwood.
We were looking for; a place closer to family, but not too close (300 kms as opposed to 3000 kms), good work for both of us, close to water and amazing geography, and most importantly a family oriented place to raise our kids.  (Not to mention access to snowboarding every day of the winter!)

Saskatoon has been good to us, (who ever would have thought that our little house on the prairie would bankroll our move east).  We loved exploring the west.  We are sad to leave our awesome community of friends, but the pull of family is just getting too strong to resist.  We are very excited about our future in Collingwood.

Try as we might to live our lives in a deliberate and well thought out manner, we inevitably end up going with our hearts.  We fell in love with a house on our first weekend of looking, (thanks Marg).  The red brick Victorian storefronts, and the bustling market and Georgian Bay resonated with our Ontario born and bred psyches as we walked the streets of Collingwood and we realized we had found home again.
