Windsor and Essex County are located in Canada’s southernmost region in the Province of Ontario on the same latitude as northern California and southern Italy. The City of Windsor is situated one mile across from the United States and Detroit, Michigan on the world’s busiest international border crossing. Comprised of nine municipalities, the 100 Mile Peninsula extends from Lighthouse Cove on Lake St. Clair, along the shoreline to Wheatley on Lake Erie, and includes Lakeshore, Tecumseh, Windsor, LaSalle, Essex, Amherstburg, Kingsville, Leamington and Pelee Island.
Formed in mid-2008 by the Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce, Greater Windsor Home Builders’ Association and Windsor-Essex County Association of REALTORS®, the Windsor-Essex Active Retirement Community Initiative is a not-for-profit cooperative marketing partnership. Our mission is to attract investment, create new jobs and revitalize the real estate market throughout Windsor-Essex by building on the region’s growing development of active retirement luxury properties and services, and by promoting the unique location, diverse lifestyle and quality amenities of its nine communities.
