Barrie Area Native Advisory Circle

Making a difference
one community at a time

Since its inception in 1989 The Barrie Area Native Advisory Circle has functioned as a regional social planning and development organization. BANAC region now covers Simcoe County, Muskoka, and the northern York Region.

We work in cooperation with communities in areas of concern where coordinated efforts are required to meet the needs which positively impact the region. BANAC will continue in this social planning capacity, offering consultation and support for our community development.
