According to the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation, swimming pools were a popular addition to homes in Ontario in 2021, and Windsor and Lakeshore made the top ten list.

MPAC says that 9,059 swimming pool permits were issued in 2021 across Ontario, increasing 33% over the previous year. This continues a trend that saw a 53% increase from 2019 to 2020.

“The pandemic likely continued to put a focus on the home,” says Carmelo Lipsi, MPAC Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer. “Whether it’s because people were staying close to home due to restrictions, or were uncertain about future travel, many property owners invested in a pool as part of creating a backyard oasis to enjoy with family or friends.”

Windsor was seventh, and Lakeshore was 10th for 2021.

Here is how the top ten breakdowns:

  • City of Ottawa – 1,372
  • City of Hamilton – 566
  • Town of Oakville – 315
  • City of Burlington – 293
  • City of London – 286
  • Town of Milton – 196
  • City of Windsor – 189
  • City of Kitchener – 178
