St. Joachim, Ontario

St. Joachim, Ontario

St. Joachim is a hamlet in the Town of Lakeshore in Essex County, Ontario, Canada. It has a population of approximately five hundred.

In the heart of the town rests a Catholic church (St. Joachim Church) which was erected over one hundred years ago by francophone settlers. The impressive building stands adjacent to the St. Jean Baptiste hall, a popular wedding reception facility. As a result of structural concerns, the Diocese of London was ultimately forced to close the church to the public.

Spanning the banks of the Ruscom River, St. Joachim remains one of the most important cultural francophone settlements in southern Ontario.
