Man posing in front of white backgroundWelcome to Saugeen Shores – the fastest growing community in the region and a hub for innovation on Canada’s clean energy frontier. 

Bordered in the west by one of the world’s largest freshwater lakes over which spectacular sunsets can be viewed in every season. A place where the relaxed cottage life of sunbathing, fishing and trail riding mixes effortlessly with cutting edge business, high-paying jobs, high-end retail, arts and culture. This is Saugeen Shores. Located on Ontario’s Lake Huron shoreline, Saugeen Shores is situated along Provincial Highway No. 21. Encompassing the communities of Port Elgin and Southampton, our town is conveniently accessible to Ontario’s major urban hubs including Toronto, Guelph, Kitchener, Waterloo, Hamilton, London and Barrie. 
As communities across the country battled and continue to battle the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic Saugeen Shores businesses and community members have adapted and changed the way they do business and deliver services. We always knew Saugeen Shores was a strong, resilient and innovate place to live and the pandemic has provided further proof of that fact. 
Saugeen Shores has implemented an Economic Recovery Strategic Plan and continues to welcome new businesses and residents to our community. Staff and Council are dedicated to the economic well being of everyone in Saugeen Shores and we continue to engage in conversations with all levels of government to Message from the Mayor advocate for the support of our local economy.
Business owners, young families, remote workers, and retirees are drawn to our growing and increasingly diverse community– attracted by an unparalleled quality of life and close proximity to major employers, including the world’s largest nuclear generating facility, Bruce Power. Saugeen Shores is becoming a centre of excellence in the energy sector as numerous nuclear industry suppliers choose to put down roots here. As this activity intensifies, our community will be increasingly at the forefront of innovation in low carbon energy production. This development, combined with world class communications, dedicated workers, exceptional transportation infrastructure and affordable operating costs, makes Saugeen Shores the place to be for any business looking to expand, collaborate and grow. I invite you to come join our community– as a visitor, a business owner, or as one of the growing number of people who are choosing to call Saugeen Shores home.
