Why live in Chatham-Kent?

I think living in C-K has a lot to offer! I find we are great at supporting small businesses. It is a wonderful place to raise a family, and it has a wonderful small town feel with a lot of heart. I would love to see CK’s downtown core continue to grow. It has blossomed so beautifully and is drawing in a lot of opportunity. It is so neat to watch all the positive changes and new events to bring us together as a community.
