Welcome to the Township of Enniskillen

On behalf of the Council of the Township of Enniskillen, I would like to welcome you to our municipality, which is located in the heart of Lambton County, in the “great southwest” region of the Province of Ontario.

Almost 3,200 people call Enniskillen home in more than 1,100 households.  The area is about 340 square kilometers  or about 82,000 acres of  highly productive farmland.  There are two residental hamlets within the township, including Oil City and Marthaville.

Our municipality’s rich history began in the 1830’s.  The township was named after the Earl of Enniskillen in Ireland by the Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada, Sir John Colborne.  The Township was officially incorporated in 1855.  However, it was the discovery of oil in 1858, that changed the course of Enniskillen Township’s history, making it the birthplace of oil in North America!  Even today, more than 150 years later, many oil fields continue to produce “black gold” for the important petro-chemical industry of Lambton County.

Agriculture is not only the largest industry in the province, but also within the borders of Enniskillen.  The major crops grown are soybeans, wheat and corn in addition to various livestock operations.  The newest sector to emerge is the greenhouse industry.  The largest crop is soybeans which is processed in two facilities in the province as well as exported to various Asian markets as food grade edible soybeans.  Corn is grown not only for livestock feed, but also to supply the ethanol plant in nearby St. Clair Township.

As Mayor, I welcome you and willing to hear from you anytime with suggestions how we can continue to make Enniskillen a better place to live, work and play!

Kevin Marriott, Mayor
