Ontario is bordered by Quebec to the east, Manitoba to the west and the United States to the South. Ontario is home to the largest waterfall in Canada, Niagara Falls, which is located at the Ontario and US border. Ontario is the biggest destination in Canada for immigrants because of its economy and because of the highly multicultural Greater Toronto Area.



Ontario is Canada's leading manufacturing province, An abundance of natural resources, excellent transportation links to the American heartland and the inland Great Lakes making ocean access possible using container ships, have all contributed to making manufacturing the principal industry. The Ontario auto industry is the largest in Canada. Tourism contributes heavily to the economy of Central Ontario, peaking during the summer. Also, Ontario has a large agriculture industry. Cattle, Dairy and grains are the most common produce in the agriculture industry.



The climate of Ontario varies largely from season to season. The difference between Northern and Southern Ontario is drastic.  The Northern Ontario climate is a sub artic climate, whereas Southern Ontario has a milder climate, with hot summers and cold winters. Most people (94% of the population) live in Southern Ontario, which makes up only 15% of the land area.
