THE UNSPOILED WEST
Land of resources, opportunity and beauty.
It's location halfway between St. Thomas and Chatham has made it an ideal strategic location for head up industries looking for proximity to both manufacturing centres.
The wild beauty and opportunity of still undeveloped Lake shore make it a passive recreationist dream whether bird-watching bald eagles with West Elgin Nature Club or tramping through the guided trails of our local Carolinian forests.
Our 50 slip Port Glasgow Marina, beach, small private airstrip and 4 nearby trailer resorts cater to both pickerel fishers and the more laid back vacationers.
Like good western partners the main streets of West Lorne and Rodney, don't think there is anything wrong with a little friendly competition, giving the casual shopper both value and choice while enjoying the pleasant setting of our twin turn-of-the century railroad villages.
Rich in both land and the hard-working people it attracted, West Elgin is open for business. Local farm and nursery enterprises have seen great success in the last few years as people with drive and vision can still find opportunity here in the west.
Making it happen is our number one priority. We have three commercial industrial areas, fully serviced within steps of 401 but it's the local let's get it done attitude that is our real asset. West Lorne, 60 years ago had the foresight to start what has become a state of art water service supplying water to 6 surrounding municipalities ensuring growth to the whole area.
Four schools including West Elgin High School, a Community Health Centre, two Libraries, top notch recreations activities including arena and pool are just some signs of a community putting people first.
Western hospitality is always worth the trip.
