    The Barrie area was first settled during the War of 1812 as a key supply depot for the British forces. 20 years later, it would be named after Sir Robert Barrie, who frequently commanded forces in the region. The 1980s and 1990s would be a period of immense growth for Barrie, and the population tripled in the span of twenty-five years. In 1981, the city had a population of 38,423; in 2006, Barrie had 128,430 residents living within the city limits. Barrie's continued success would be marked by the development of high-rise condominiums along Kempenfelt Bay, instigating something of a downtown renaissance. The city's large investment in its waterfront services would culminate in Barrie becoming a premier tourist destination. With several nearby ski resorts and a picturesque boardwalk, Barrie is known for its tourism and as the 'Gateway to Cabin Country.' The city's economy is diverse, with education, healthcare, information technology, and manufacturing in all sectors predominant. The Royal Victoria Regional Health Center is Barrie's largest employer, with nearly 3,000 workers. Retail in the city has also flourished in recent decades, bolstered by the completion of Park Place in 2008. Barrie experiences cold, snowy winters with an average low temperature in January of -12.4 ° C (9.7 ° F ). Summers are hot and humid, with an average maximum temperature in July of 26.3 ° C (79.3 ° F).
