Growing Great Places Together

Town of Kingsville, Ontario - 2024 National Finalist

Kingsville sits along the north shore of Lake Erie. Our community is in the Essex County region. We have a unique location as the most southern Town in Canada, and we enjoy the warmest climate of any city in Ontario. Our region is at the same latitude as northern California. The average temperature reaches above 50°F (10°C) 223 days of the year.

Kingsville is mostly an agricultural community. We neighbour the Municipality of Leamington, and have one of the largest concentrations of vegetable greenhouses in North America. These greenhouses produce tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, strawberries, flowers and potted plants. We’re also home to four estate wineries, (including the largest in Canada, Pelee Island Winery,) producing various award-winning wines from their local vineyards.

There are many Tourism and recreational opportunities in Kingsville. Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary is a popular spot for bird-watching, and our Chrysler Canada Greenway interconnects with the National Waterfront Trail. Our marine facilities include the Cedar Island Marina and Yacht Club and we host an international working harbour at the Port of Kingsville.

The Essex County region is an affordable place to live and do business. The cost of our serviced land is among the lowest on the continent, and our housing prices are low compared to the rest of Canada.  We’re also close to the busiest border crossing in North America, making Kingsville a desirable location.
