Kincardine is a municipality located on the shores of Lake Huron in Bruce County in the province of Ontario, Canada. The current municipality was created in 1999 by the amalgamation of the Town of Kincardine, the Township of Kincardine, and the Township of Bruce.The municipality had a population of 11,174 in the Canada 2011 Census.CommunitiesIn addition to the main population centre of Kincardine itself (population 6,725), the municipality also contains the smaller communities of Armow, Baie du Dore, Bervie, Glammis, Inverhuron, Millarton, North Bruce, Tiverton, and Underwood.HistoryIn 1998, the Village of Tiverton lost its separate incorporation, and became part of the Township of Bruce.The Town of Kincardine, the Township of Kincardine, and the Township of Bruce were then amalgamated to form the Township of Kincardine-Bruce-Tiverton on January 1, 1999, with boundaries identical to those of the municipality that had existed in 1855. After the first election of the new municipal council, a plebiscite was conducted, and the name changed to the Municipality of Kincardine. One of the defeated options on the plebiscite was the name Penetangore. Since 1991, Kincardine (then the Town of Kincardine) has been twinned with the Harbour Beach, Michigan.GovernmentCouncilThe municipal government is overseen by a council of nine. The council consists of a mayor elected at large, two councillors elected from Ward 1 (the former Town of Kincardine), one from Ward 2 (the former Township of Kincardine), one from Ward 3 (the former Township of Bruce), and three elected at large.
