Ontario, located smack in the middle of Canada, is the largest province by population and second largest in total area and also has the distinction of being the most affluent.
Ontario is bordered by the provinces of Manitoba to the west and Quebec to the east and the U.S. states of Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York. Most of Ontario's borders with the United States are natural and Ontario has the distinction of being the only Canadian Province that borders the Great Lakes.
This vast province is a delightful mixture of vibrant urban life, stunning natural beauty and amazing wilderness retreats. Toronto, Canada's most populous city and capital of Ontario along with Ottawa, the capital of Canada are the main city destinations. Ontario is also home to the Canadian Falls side of Niagara Falls as well as quiet country towns and huge areas of wilderness to the north.
The people of Ontario have something in common with us back in Britain – they are obsessed with weather!
Summers can have the heat and humidity of the tropics and the winters can be as cold as the arctic. Spring and fall can be as wet as a rain forest or dry as a desert - every day is a new weather adventure which beggars the saying “what's going on with this weather?”
