Welcome to Canadice, NY


Canadice is a town in the southwestern corner of Ontario County, bordered to the north by Richmond, to the east by South Bristol, and to the south and west by Livingston County. Canadice is situated between Hemlock Lake to the west and Honeoye Lake to the east, and Canadice Lake is entirely within the town’s borders. Simply put, this is a place for people who enjoy quiet, wide-open outdoorsy areas.


Most of the places to shop in this area are in Geneseo (in Livingston County), which is 21 miles west of Canadice or in Canandaigua, about 21 miles northeast. For grocery shopping, Geneseo has a Wegmans supermarket (at Genesee Valley Plaza) and other smaller markets. Geneseo has a thriving and growing retail center, anchored by a Walmart Supercenter but also including an appliance store, a hardware store, a Dollar Tree and a florist. The village’s Main Street has a variety of funky shops, including the inimitable Buzzo Music.
