Terrace Bay has become known as a favourite for retirees due to its outstanding healthcare, low crime rate, variety of activities for older adults, and reasonably low cost of living.  The Aguasabon Medical Clinic has a full complement of family physicians and all new residents are immediately assigned a family phyisican upon visiting the clinic for the first time.  Terrace Bay is regularly in the lowest rate per capita for crime statistics and is viewed as a safe, caring environment.
The Municipality was designed in the 1940s and has most of everything within a two minute drive including groceries, pharmacy, hospital, restaurants, gas stations, home hardware and other service type businesses.  Excellent homes are available with prices generally ranging from $50,000-$100,000 and tax rates are some of the lowest in the region.  The Municipality believes in continuously examining ways to improve the life of its residents as shown by the recently completed $2 million Cultural Centre Project and the $3 million Downtown Revitalization Project.
