About Pelee Island

Welcome to the most southern inhabited place in Canada. Pelee Township consists of nine islands in the western basin of Lake Erie. Pelee is the largest of the islands (19 km by 6 km) and Ohio is the southern border. The location provides a rare Carolinian forest rich in biodiversity. There are two Provincial Nature Reserve Parks and multiple reserve lands of three conservation organizations on the island, teaming with birds and endangered species of wild life.
