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.

Various organizations and programs are available to help newcomers and start-ups in the area. If you are looking to move here or start a business here, contact Cherie Leslie, Community Economic Development Coordinator.
