The Lindsay office is located in the Gateway Plaza at 55 Mary St. W, Suite 109, Lindsay, ON K9V 5Z6, on the first floor just inside the main lobby.
Mary Street runs parallel to the main street of Lindsay (Kent St), two blocks south. It is bound by Angeline Street on the west and Lindsay Street on the east.
