Lincoln at a Glance
The Town of Lincoln, formed in a 1970 amalgamation, is prominently located in Ontario’s Niagara Peninsula along the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) highway and the Niagara Escarpment, with frontage on Lake Ontario. Beamsville serves as the town’s administrative centre and main business area. Other population clusters include Vineland, Jordan, Campden, Rockway and Tintern.
Home to about 24,000 residents, the municipality’s economic base is its exceptionally productive agricultural sector, complemented by value-added agricultural businesses, tourism and manufacturing. Lincoln is a leader in tender fruit production, grape growing and greenhouse operations and home to more than 50 wineries and the largest concentration of greenhouse operators in Canada.
Lincoln’s superior natural beauty includes its Lake Ontario waterfront, Jordan Harbour, vineyards and conservation areas, such as Ball’s Falls. Its highly productive agriculture sector benefits from the area’s rich and fertile soil and the temperature moderating effects of Lake Ontario and the Niagara Escarpment, which is an environmentally protected UN World Biosphere Reserve. This designation recognizes the escarpment and the land in its vicinity as internationally significant.
The Town also holds a strategic position between Toronto and the Northeastern United States. It is within a day’s drive of 55% of the US and 60% of Canada’s population. Lincoln boasts quick and easy access to transportation corridors that connect to the world and the global economy.
Lincoln is perfectly positioned to welcome you—it is the ideal place to live, work and belong.
