Welcome to the Pointe au Baril and Area Nursing Station!
You may arrive by planes, boats, snowmobiles, or automobiles! At one time, not so long ago, you could only arrive by train!
Nestled on the beautiful shores of Georgian Bay, part of the 30,000 islands, is the Pointe au Baril nursing station. Pointe au Baril is 1/2 hour north of Parry Sound and 1.5 hours south of Sudbury. We are next door to the community center and share a dock.
Much of the employment is seasonal, with construction and marinas the biggest employers. Our population explodes exponentially in the summer due to the pristine waters and many summer resident who live on the islands and waterways.
