Queensville is a village within the Town of East Gwillimbury, Ontario, Canada.

Among the private homes, the village proper contains the Queensville Cemetery, a post office, a United Church of Canada, and a complex containing a fire hall, a community centre, a public park with softball diamond, tennis courts and playground. Guy Paul Morin and Christine Jessop were neighbours in Queensville in 1984, and John Candy once owned a home approximately 1 km south of Queensville.

At one time, there were plans to build Ontario's first private university in Queensville. The site for the proposed university would have been east of Leslie on the north side of Queensville side road. It was expected that the university would occupy 65 acres (0.102 sq mi; 0.26 km2) and employ 1,000 people.[1]
