Economic Development

The Town of Kingsville presents a unique profile: a thriving downtown environment surrounded by traditional agricultural farming, cottage industry, together with an ever-expanding greenhouse industry. Conveniently located with easy access to international border connections and the 401, Kingsville is attracting the attention of manufacturing enterprises, and tourism development.

In the past year economic development strategies were identified and prioritized. These strategies will form the basis of action plans to be developed over the coming years focusing on the following issues:

  • Retirement and attraction of business related to this growing industry;
  • Agriculture and related activities;
  • Tourism;
  • Enhanced communication networking and connection;
  • Small business development and attraction of new manufacturing enterprises;
  • Growth of the Municipality as a regional service centre;
  • Industrial park development;
  • Waterfront and Marina development.

The Municipality is currently involved with WEConnect and Connect Ontario and is actively participating in the expanded opportunities this technology presents for economic development purposes.
