Private Ontario island is for sale and it's cheaper than a Toronto home

Dec 3 2020, 8:43 pm

If you live in Toronto, you could be an island owner before you’re a property owner.

You read that correctly.

A private island in Ontario is currently for sale, and it’s going for less than a home in Toronto.

It could all be yours for $250,000.


According to RE/MAX, this island located in Prince Edward County is based in the idyllic  Bay of Quinte. It’s just over a two-hour drive from Toronto.

Firmans Island, also known as Cow Island, is suited for hunting, fishing or relaxation after a day of boating.

However, the land is environmentally protected, meaning no permanent structures can be built, but docks, decks and non-permanent buildings are permitted.


It’s 2020; it’s been a strange year. Calling yourself an island owner isn’t too bizarre in the grand scheme of things.
