The province on Ontario, situated to the south of the Hudson Bay, the west of Quebec, the east of Manitoba and the north of the United States, is the province where the most Canadians choose to live. Home to the nation's capital, the province is connected to both the Great Lakes and the Saint Lawrence River and borders Minnesota, Michigan and New York.
A Little About Ontario
There are five cities in Ontario that have over half a million people living in them, including Ottawa, Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton and Hamilton, helping to make Ontario the most populated province. The geography is divided into two areas known locally as Northern Ontario and Southern Ontario. Southern Ontario is the populated area, with over a third of all Canadians living there, while Northern Ontario is the colder, well-forested mass of land that is used mostly for mining. While it accounts for 87% of Ontario's total land, it has less than 10% of the province's population.
Entertainment & Attractions
Toronto is easily at the forefront of culture in Canada. The city, not only the largest in Ontario with a population of over 2.5 million but the largest in the entire country, is the heart of the arts community in Canada. The city is known for its museums and galleries, as well as its lively performing arts scene that includes Broadway's biggest hits, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the Canadian Opera Company and the National Ballet of Canada. Anybody who thrives on the arts lifestyle and needs to live in a city on the cutting edge of culture has no better option than Toronto. Many cities in Ontario have recently experienced a real estate boom and with more and more Canadians choosing Southern Ontario as the place to spend their lives, it may not slow down any time soon.
