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.

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.
