Welcome to Saulaine

Saulaine, established in 1952, is St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Latvian Church of Toronto’s Christian retreat and conference centre. The Church operates a Christian children's camp each summer as well as other events for its members and the Latvian community. When not in use by the Congregation, the property is available year-round for religious retreats and social functions such as weddings, family gatherings, and concerts.

This beautiful country property is located on the Nottawasaga River about 90 minutes north of Toronto and 25 minutes south of Barrie, Ontario.
