Why Kingston

There are so many reasons to choose Kingston! The spectacular Thousand Islands archipelago starts in Kingston, as does the Rideau Canal. Our economy is booming, our commutes are short and our homes are affordable.

We are geographically blessed with a location that is equidistant from Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. And while those cities might dispute this claim, Kingston has the best music scene in Canada!
