Getting Here

Stretching from the centre of Essex County to the north shore of Lake Erie, the Town of Essex is uniquely positioned on the 42nd parallel, a circle of latitude shared with northern California and central Italy. When you're here, you're just about as far south in mainland Canada as you can go.

Tourism Essex is the official tourism website for the Town of Essex and its communities: Colchester Centre, Essex Centre, Harrow Centre and McGregor Centre. We invite you to visit us regularly to find out what's happening in Essex.
