The City of Kingston is located on the east side of Lake Ontario, just between Toronto, Ontario, and Montreal, Quebec. The city is home to 123,798 residents according to 2016 Census Canada data, and no doubt it has grown even bigger since.  

Kingston was first established as a French trading post and military fort known as Fort Frontenac in the 17th century. Because of the fort’s economic and military importance, Kingston was named as the first capital in the United Province of Canada on February 10, 1841. However, its status as capital was relocated just three years later out of concern over its prime location being a target for potential military attacks.

Nonetheless, the fort remained an important military and strategic location throughout the years and was the scene of many battles. Over time, it has been destroyed, taken over, rebuilt and renamed. Fort Frontenac endured through it all, and today is still used as a military base.

Kingston is nicknamed Limestone City because of all the old buildings made of local limestone—another aspect of the city’s rich history, but also a sad story. In 1840, a devastating fire caused by a dock explosion resulted in the damage or complete destruction of dozens of buildings downtown, including the old city hall. After the fire, in a bid to prevent a similar catastrophe from ever happening again, residents started constructing buildings from only limestone or brick, and this period, known as the “Limestone Revolution,” was the reason for the city’s unusual nickname.

Compared to the rest of Ontario, Kingston’s climate is on the colder end, with cool summer days and relatively cold winters. Kingston is also considerably windier than most of Canada, and because of its lake proximity, precipitation—particularly snowfalls—can be plentiful.

The main economic driver is the public sector, specifically health care and higher education, followed by government, tourism and culture. Kingston is home to several renowned universities, including Queen's University, the Royal Military College of Canada and St. Lawrence College, all which are major sources of employment in the area.  

Nearby Cities

Many buyers opt to purchase in a nearby city and commute to work. These buyers want larger homes and lots that also offer convenient commuter access to Kingston’s downtown core. Prime options include Belleville, Latimer, and Millhaven. Look for neighbourhoods that are closer to the highway or major commuter train stations, such as Ottawa or Montreal. Even cities that require a bit of a longer commute, such as Napanee, Enterprise and Gananoque, are good options, as they usually have a better selection of affordable detached homes.
