Explore the rich history of our Town, from our early settlers to the foundation of what LaSalle is today.

Living LaSalle

In 2021, LaSalle celebrated 30 years of being a town. LaSalle was incorporated as a town on June 1, 1991, and became one of the larger communities in Essex County. Since becoming a town, LaSalle’s population has more than doubled, while still preserving hundreds of hectares of ecologically important wetlands, Carolinian forest and tall grass prairies.

Rediscover our heritage. Let’s Celebrate – Living LaSalle.

Welcome to
LaSalle, Ontario!

Greetings on behalf of LaSalle town council and administration. We are a community that is proud of who we are, proud of our heritage and proud of where we are headed.

In 2021, LaSalle celebrated 30 years as a town. Since then, we have learned a lot about our history and are proud to share highlights on our timeline.

A major focus for us is the development of LaSalle Landing, located along the Heritage Detroit River. We are in the early stages of transforming this unique gem into a connected, multi- amenity destination. Our goal is to turn our waterfront district into a magnet for new businesses and visitors. This will benefit not just LaSalle, but the entire region.

With an extensive trail system, sports fields, splash pad, playgrounds, festivals and events, our community has so much to enjoy for all ages. We invite you to come and find out more about how residents and businesses together are Living LaSalle.
