Ipperwash Beach is a small community in the municipality of Lambton Shores in southwestern Ontario.
The Ipperwash Crisis was an Indigenous land dispute that took place in Ipperwash Provincial Park, Ontario in 1995. Several members of the Stoney Point Ojibway band occupied the park in order to assert their claim to nearby land which had been expropriated from them during World War II. During a violent confrontation, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) killed unarmed protester Dudley George.
By automobile, there are three ways to get into Ipperwash Beach:
