One of the most populated province in Canada and is the second-largest province by total area after Quebec. A third of Canada’s population lives in Ontario, and the city of Toronto — the country’s largest — contains most of Canada’s world-class attractions, entertainment, and shopping.
The national capital of Ottawa is home to many interesting sights involving Canadian history and government, while the more rural “cottage country” regions are where locals go to enjoy the great outdoors. Northern Ontario is largely uninhabited, and most of the province’s major population centers, including Toronto, are located in the southeastern corner, around the massive Lake Ontario. Despite the name, so-called Central Ontario — the scenic, nature-filled region — can be found by driving only a few hours in any direction outside greater Toronto.
