There's an exciting buzz in and around Kincardine on the shores of Lake Huron. It's more than the sunsets and beautiful beach, and more than one of Canada's leading energy clusters just up the shoreline. The excitement you can feel is entrepreneurial by nature and growing every year. We enjoy and embrace an enterprising legacy here. And that makes Kincardine the right launch pad for startups and business expansion.

The population of Kincardine is active and young with over 11,000 people; 60%+ of which are pre-retirement. Over 4,000 skilled people from the region work at nearby Bruce Power, forming one of Canada's leading energy/technical clusters. Average household income, as a result, is in excess of $132,709 per year. Skilled, well-educated, great work ethic: as a local human resources professional commented recently, attracting great talent here is no problem.

The Municipality of Kincardine covers over 538 square kilometers.
