Where is Port Stanley?
Located right on the shore of Lake Erie, this village really couldn’t get any more! In terms of land, the Village of Port Stanley is one of the communities that make up the Central Elgin Township in the larger Elgin County.
Port Stanley occupies 3.3 square kilometers of land and houses a population of just over 2,100 people. The population of Port Stanley alone is 17% of the total population in the Central Elgin Township.
As a desirable destination in the Great Lakes region, the village is under 30 minutes from the 401 Highway. Port Stanley employs a lot of people locally in the tourism and hospitality sector. However, if work takes you to St. Thomas or even London, Ontario, the commute from a lakeside property in Port Stanley is still manageable. Heading North, St. Thomas is 20 minutes away and London is a slightly further 40 minute drive.
