Homes for sale in lakeshore ontario

In 1999 the towns of Belle River amalgamated with the townships of Maidstone, Rochester as well as Tilbury North and West to form the town of Lakeshore Ontario.

Since that time Lakeshore has seen a growth in population of over 7000 people and currently sits at a population of 35,000. Geographically, Lakeshore is the largest town in Windsor-Essex County and in terms of landmass is larger than Windsor, LaSalle and Tecumseh combined. Lakeshore also has the longest stretch of shoreline (over 35 kilometres) in the entire county, is often referred to as a “boater’s paradise” and is also known as the musky capital of Canada. Lakeshore sees some of the longest summers and shortest winters in Canada which adds to a longer boating season for enthusiasts.

Lakeshore’s History

laskshoresound1

Lakeshore has strong historical roots in Canada and settlement of the area dates back to the early 1800s. French Canadians from nearby Detroit and Sandwich were the area’s earliest settlers and the town continues to have one of the largest Franco-Ontarian populations in the province. As the years passed, the community saw waves of immigrants from both Ireland and Quebec and was a major stop on the under ground railroad and remains home to many families who escaped to Canada during the 1800s. Residents can learn more at the Comber, Maidstone and Underground Railroad Museums which are open throughout the year.

Lakeshore’s economy is primarily based on agriculture (mainly cash-crops like soybeans and winter-wheat) and manufacturing with over 27% of the population working in the manufacturing industry, much of which is spinoff from the automobile industry throughout the region. Lakeshore has been and continues to be a bedroom community of Windsor, Ontario with about 50% of the population working there full-time and with commuters seeing about a 30 minute drive from community to community. In recent years the town has seen expanded utilities services, medical and education centres in preparation for incoming residents as well as the addition of new homes and business districts.

If a quiet lifestyle and access to waterfront recreation and leisure appeal to you; Lakeshore may just be the community you’ve been looking for.
