The Municipality of Kincardine is located on the shoreline of Lake Huron in the County of Bruce in the province of Ontario, Canada. It has a population of 12,000, and covers an area of 580 square kilometres. The municipality, located at the mouth of the Penetangore River, was created in 1999 by the amalgamation of the the Township of Kincardine, the Town of Kincardine, and the Township of Bruce. It was previously referred to as Penetangore.

In addition to the town centre of the Town of Kincardine, The Municipality of Kincardine consists of the following small communities: Armow, Baie du Dore, Bervie, Glammis, Millarton, Inverhuron, Underwood, North Bruce and Tiverton.

On the 5th of March, the year 1848, Captain Alexander M. MacGregor sailed "THE FLY", his little schooner into the mouth of the Penetangore River. In Ojibwa, Penetangore means "river with sand on one side". This is referring to the sand bar at the mouth of the river. Settlers, William Withers and Allan Cameron landed will on this ship at the location of the modern-day township, in that particular section of Canada West referred to only as the Queen's Bush, and established a community called Penetangore. Near where they landed the constructed a log cabin wherein Cameron ran a hotel. Withers built a dam and a saw mill that was opened the next year 1849. By the winter of 1848/49 the settlement was inhabited by seven families.

A small nuclear power plant was built at Douglas Point in Bruce Township during the year 1958, and the eight additional reactors of the Bruce Nuclear Generating Station were built between the years 1977 and 1987. As a result, a wave of extremely educated people moved to Kincardine for work, and were paid commensurately. This considerably changed the town's demographics, and its whole economy.

The Bruce Nuclear Power Development has become the dominant force in the economy of the township. Bruce Power is the private corporation which operates the plant under lease from Ontario Power Generation. There is likewise a booming tourist industry, emphasizing beautiful sunsets, Scottish cultural custom and sandy beaches.

Kincardine is home to various trails and parks which run all over the township of Kincardine.
