Location

Kingsville is an active community of 20,900 people, located on the north shore of Lake Erie, approximately 25 minutes from the Windsor/Detroit Border. Kings Highway #3 intersects the Town of Kingsville and provides the main highway access northwest to the City of Windsor or east to Kings Highway #77 and north to the 401. Ferry service is also provided from the Kingsville Harbour to Pelee Island, a popular hunting and vacation destination during the spring, summer and fall months.

Our unique location as one of the most southerly locations in Canada offers our residents an unusually mild winter climate and has encouraged many retirees to settle here. Our ideal climate and second longest growing season in all of Canada offers ideal conditions for gardening and outdoor activities, not to mention the abundance of fresh farm produce from local farmers. Kingsville is also the hub of a rapidly expanding greenhouse industry.

Kingsville boasts some of the best known wineries, greenhouses and prime agricultural lands and a small town quality of life second to none. Kingsville is not only the destination of choice, but the launching point for adventures to Pelee Island and Sandusky, Ohio via a regular ferry service shared with Leamington.
