Saugeen Shores Development Story Map highlights developments and opportunities

Economic Development tool highlights development opportunities in the communities of Port Elgin and Southampton


The Town of Saugeen Shores has updated their Development Story Map to include new opportunities for investors and newcomers to Saugeen Shores. The tool, introduced in 2017, has become a popular first point of contact for investors looking at the communities of Port Elgin and Southampton.

“The Development Story Map highlights under-utilized space in our community as well as buildings and land where a business may open their doors or scale-up.  Additionally, we’re proud to showcase residential developments that demonstrate growth and opportunity in Saugeen Shores” said Mayor Luke Charbonneau.

To be considered for inclusion to the Town’s Development Story Map properties must meet set criteria which include appropriate zoning and draft approval (as applicable).

An application form can be submitted online. Visit for more details.
