About Us

If you were to take a drive around Windsor and Essex County, what would you see? Erie Street on a warm summer night. Bustling Lakeshore and LaSalle. Historic Olde Walkerville. How about our resilient downtown, and the region’s vibrant smaller communities that all add to the mosaic we call our Essex County home. In other words, the kinds of things featured in THE DRIVE, Windsor and Essex County’s most unique magazine.

THE DRIVE is our award-winning wineries, our beautiful waterfronts, and our vibrant playgrounds of leisure. THE DRIVE is our business leaders and blue-collar doers. Our doctors, teachers, lawyers and professionals. It's your neighbour across the street, and the Windsor-Essex resident you may have yet to meet. THE DRIVE is about people; the people of Windsor and Essex County. It's a regular celebration of our community, and both the extraordinary and simple-yet-interesting stories that make a difference in our community.

For 10 years now, THE DRIVE has been all about telling those stories. What sets THE DRIVE apart from the ordinary is it's unique style. The crisp black and white format has a profound effect in capturing the attention and interests of our readers. But ultimately, it is its captivating content that puts THE DRIVE on a road of its own. Image is more than superficial appearances. It is a reflection of the attitudes and reputations which can define a community. To get a closer look at what a community is all about, to see the accomplishments of its people, businesses, arts, technology and sports, take a spin with THE DRIVE.

And Enjoy the Ride!
