Welcome to the Municipality of Lakeshore

Lakeshore borders along the southern coast of Lake St. Clair and is the largest municipality in Essex County by landmass, with the lowest population density. Lakeshore is comprised of the smaller municipalities of Belle River, Rochester, Maidstone, Tilbury North and Tilbury West, each with their own unique identity and community.

The majority of Lakeshore is occupied by cash-crop agriculture operations, however recent investments in the energy sector with the Comber Wind Farm have helped diversify the growing economy.

Lakeshore is home to a large Francophone community, with nearly 10% of residents speaking French as a primary language and 20% speaking both English and French.
