THE MUNICIPALITY OF WEST ELGINIncluding Rodney, Port Glasgow & West Lorne

A minute from the 401, West Elgin is an easily accessible destination for relaxation, Arts, Entertainment and Recreation and some unique annual events, including ‘Cactus, Cattle & Cowboys’ and the Rodney-Aldborough Agricultural Fair (celebrating 160 years in 2014). Port Glasgow Marina, with 80 slips, full-service washrooms and paved pier, is one of Ontario’s prime pickerel and perch fishing spots.  Adjacent to the marina, you will find miles of largely undiscovered beach.  Back-roads and trails beckon trekkers, hikers, bikers and bird-watchers—they will be rewarded with vistas of rural beauty and several farm gate markets offering the best in local produce, including three pick-your own / ready-picked blueberry farms. There’s more to discover in West Elgin’s towns, including a historic bank turned cultural hub in West Lorne, friendly country Accommodation and Food Services, shops, retreats, and even a tiny historic jail in Rodney.
