When Chatham-Kent residents found out that the Globe and Mail newspaper was doing Canada-wide coverage of retirement hot spots across the country, they contacted the paper to say, "Pick Chatham-Kent!". The Globe and Mail investigated and interviewed local people, and Chatham-Kent was selected as one of six communities across Canada to be featured. Read the whole feature article to see why Chatham-Kent is a great destination for people looking to put down roots and get involved.
There are many reasons to choose Chatham-Kent as your home upon retirement. Our mild climate allows residents to enjoy the warmth of summer a little longer, and participate in outdoor recreation year-round. Retirees can afford a high quality of life while owning a home, because of our affordable house prices. Many recreation and entertainment activities are also available at lower cost than other places in Ontario, and the attractions of larger cities (London, Toronto and Detroit, MI) are a short drive away!
