I am looking for a buildings layer for Ontario, particularly the Chatham-Kent area to properly assess setback for wind turbine development in the region. Currently, I am utilizing the buildings data provided on Geogratis; however, I would like to know it's accuracy and if other buildings data is available free or for purchase.

You could always contact the regional GIS authority (Essex County) for these types of data sets. Or the municipality/town directly. They would most likely have the most updated/accurate building structures.
