The Town has several successful business zones and is committed to smart planning and development. Tecumseh also hosts various cultural and recreational opportunities.

The majority of Tecumseh’s 94.7 square kilometres of land area is used for agriculture. The remaining is three separate areas containing typical urban features of residential, recreational, institutional, commercial and industrial development.

The Town offers a number of events with a distinct local flavour. Key among those is the Tecumseh Corn Festival which has been officially ranked as a Top 100 festival by Ontario.

Tecumseh was the first local community to implement a transit system that connects to the City of Windsor transit system. Tecumseh Transit brings riders into the city to connect to other locations.
