Gore Bay

Description

Gore Bay is a town on Manitoulin Island in Ontario, Canada. Located on Gore Bay, a bay of Lake Huron's North Channel, it is one of the two incorporated towns of Manitoulin District, of which it is the administrative and government seat. The town's named is believed to be referencing to the gore-shaped harbour. Other theories for the namesake are probably for Francis Gore (1769-1852), Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada from 1806-1817; or after the steamer Gore, which ran between Sault Ste. Marie and Collingwood from 1860 to 1870.During the summer months the population and activity of the town flourishes as boaters and tourists from around Ontario and the Great Lakes regions flock to the area. The areas surrounding Gore Bay are quickly becoming popular with cottagers and vacationers during the summer months.
Gore Bay is home to Manitoulin Transport, one of Canada's largest trucking companies. Craft brewer Split Rail Brewing is located in Gore Bay.
