Opportunity is more than a word, it’s what built Lakeside into what it is today. Ever since the Cervini family arrived in Canada from Italy, Lakeside has given an equal opportunity to all. Everyone deserves to have a safe place where they can work and grow.

Life in Windsor-Essex

Leamington, A Great Place To Grow

Leamington offers you a family environment nestled along Lake Erie. There is plenty to do in our quiet lakeside community. Great recreational opportunities, affordable and attractive housing, a warm temperate climate, all located in one of Canada’s best kept secrets…beautiful Essex County. Located on the 42nd parallel, Leamington shares the same latitude as northern California. Our winters are the mildest in the country and our summers are long and full of opportunity. Leamington hosts its own beach that features a volleyball court, restaurants, and fishing. Pelee Island is a short ferry ride away and offers the perfect weekend escape, featuring its own Pelee Island Winery.

Leamington is home to the largest concentration of Greenhouses in North America. This multi-million dollar industry focuses mainly on growing tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, cannabis and flowers.

The nearby City of Windsor offers many border city attractions as well! Windsor proudly hosts the busiest international crossing in North America, bridging Canada and the United States of America in an incredible community that offers world-class entertainment, fascinating historical and cultural landmarks, and unparalleled waterfront parks and gardens.

Nestled in a safe and quiet community, Leamington is only a short drive away from the excitement of Windsor & Detroit; offering major sporting events, internationally acclaimed galleries and museums, concerts and a bustling nightlife.
