Essex County – the perfect location to invest

Looking for the perfect location for a new business investment? Consider Essex County!

Location! Location! Location! Being Canada's southernmost point, located on the same latitude as northern California and southern Italy, the region boasts the warmest climate in all of Ontario. Surrounded by three bodies of water – Lake Erie, the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair, Essex County has booming tourism and agri-business industries and is in the enviable position of being a gateway to the United States markets via the Detroit-Windsor border.

A thriving, diverse manufacturing industry combined with a skilled workforce and the proximity to U.S. markets and the 401 corridor, make Essex County an ideal location for new businesses to locate. This is the place to invest and do business!

Agri-business is continually expanding in Essex County. We are home to North America's largest greenhouse industry, with over 1,600 acres under glass and 450 more planned for the near-term. Growers are diversifying into non-traditional crops and nutraceutical herbs. The mild climate also accommodates 17 commercial wineries - and growing - plus food processors and packagers with national and international distribution.

The tourism industry is alive and well in Essex County, from tours of the many south shore wineries to our numerous festivals and sports events.

Centres of excellence in health care and education such as Windsor Regional Hospital, Leamington District Memorial Hospital, St. Clair College and the University of Windsor provide exceptional service to our residents. In addition, plans are currently underway for a new state-of-the-art acute care hospital which will provide superior health care to our residents.

Essex County – the place to live, work, play, invest and visit!
