On behalf of Town Council and Administration I would like to welcome you to Historic Amherstburg. One of the oldest most picturesque towns in Southwestern Ontario, Amherstburg is nestled on the shores of Lake Erie and the Detroit River, a mere 25 minutes away from the Windsor/Detroit border.

Charm, character, unmistakeable history and genuine hospitality is what you'll find here!

While in Amherstburg, please enjoy a drive along our beautiful waterfront and take a walk through our spectacular parks.  Browse for unique gifts at any of our quaint specialty shops or boutiques. Eclectic dining, tea rooms and English style pubs await your palette or visit our award winning wineries, breweries or distillery. Visit our museum and galleries where you can learn about the riveting story of slavery at the Amherstburg Freedom Museum.  Experience firing a musket at Fort Malden National Historic Museum where you will learn about the War of 1812 and the Rebellion of 1837. This is all part of Amherstburg's authentic history!

Take part in many of the festivals and events held in Amherstburg all year long, including Amherstburg Garden Tour, the Canada Day Festival, River Lights Winter Festival, Woofa-Roo Pet Festival or Amherstburg's "Gone Car Crazy" Show, acclaimed as the best car show in Southern Ontario, just to name a few.

Our world class sports complex, home to the Junior C Hockey Club, the Integrity Amherstburg Admirals.  We are home to  Canada's first Miracle League baseball diamond and a fully accessible playground. 

Amherstburg was deemed the Safest Community in Canada by statistics Canada three years in a row and a Communities in Bloom 5 Bloom winner. Amherstburg is not only a great vacation destination but an ideal community to call home!

We hope to see you soon.
Warm Regards,

Aldo DiCarlo, Mayor
