These were generally in the triangular region bounded by Toronto, Niagara Falls (Niagara Falls, Ontario), and Windsor (Windsor, Ontario). Nearly 1,000 refugees settled in Toronto, and several rural villages made up mostly of ex-slaves were established in Kent County

As of June 28, 2004, there were 308 federal electoral districts in Canada, although the government of Stephen Harper has proposed an amendment, which has not yet been passed, that would increase the number to 338 for the 2015 election (Canadian federal election, 2015).


year making

Escarpment about 1 km (0.6 mi.) from Nottawasaga Bay, and is a major destination for skiers from southern (Southern Ontario) Ontario. On average, Blue Mountain sells more than 750,000 lift tickets per year, making it the third-busiest ski resort in Canada, after Whistler-Blackcomb in British Columbia and Mont Tremblant (Mont Tremblant Resort) in Quebec. Roberta Avery, "A mountain of history at popular resort", ''Toronto Star'', 18 January 2007 It is one of the largest resorts in Ontario and has been extensively built out, featuring 36 runs, 15 chairlifts and 3 freestyle (Freestyle skiing) terrains. Majority-owned by Intrawest since 1999, the resort has recently undergone major renovations, including new high-speed lifts and a new "village" similar to those built at Tremblant and Whistler at its base. The local area forms the newly incorporated town of The Blue Mountains (The Blue Mountains, Ontario), Ontario. In addition to Buffalo, WNED also has a substantial viewership in Southern Ontario, including Toronto; it identifies as "Buffalo Toronto" on-air. Many cable and satellite providers in Southern Ontario include WNED as the PBS station, and more than half of its financial support comes from Canada. : '''Northern Ontario''': I'd favour a single Northern Ontario stub; having separate stubs for Northeastern and Northwestern is largely unnecessary at the present time. The number of articles just isn't there to warrant two separate stub cats. But the boundary between Northern and Southern is as clean and straightforward as an unofficial boundary can possibly be. I also disagree with Mindmatrix on the timing; I think we may as well do it now, sort the articles and get it over with. : '''Southern Ontario''': This is a grouping that's rarely used by itself; it's almost always further subdivided into Eastern (Eastern Ontario), Western (Western Ontario), Central (Central Ontario) and the Greater Toronto Area (and Niagara Region (Niagara Regional Municipality, Ontario), which isn't considered part of any of the above.) But the problem is that since these are all unofficial, there's no real agreement on precisely where the boundaries of each region are. : A lot of places are straightforward: London (London, Ontario) is incontrovertibly in Western, Kingston (Kingston, Ontario) is obviously in Eastern. But depending on who you ask, Guelph (Guelph, Ontario) and Brantford (Brantford, Ontario) could be either Western or Central. A lot of people think that Hamilton (Hamilton, Ontario) is part of the GTA -- it isn't, in reality, but in most people's minds it's ''not'' part of Western or Central, because it's "in the GTA". (And a lot of those who don't lump it with the GTA tend to put it on the Niagara "none of the above" bus instead.) And Belleville (Belleville, Ontario) is generally considered Eastern, but by the generally understood definition Eastern begins where Lake Ontario ends and the St. Lawrence River starts...and Belleville is actually west of that point, which means that by definition it's in Central. And as I already mentioned, Niagara isn't considered to be within ''any'' of the compass-point-subregions; it's just Niagara (or Golden Horseshoe, if necessary, but certainly not Western or Central or GTA...which leaves no stub category available for it.) The '''Niagara Hostel''' is a hostel in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. The establishment provides inexpensive lodging for travellers and tourists, in particular backpackers (backpacking (travel)). The hostel is close in proximity to the international border between Canada and the United States, allowing guests access to the Southern Ontario and Western New York areas. '''Alliance Hockey''' is a minor level ice hockey organization based out of Southern Ontario. The league is sanctioned by the Ontario Hockey Federation and Hockey Canada. In 1991, tired of the indecisiveness of the Ontario Hockey Association in creating the next Junior "A" league, the now renegade Metro Junior "B" league declared themselves Southern Ontario's only Tier II Junior "A" league. The league even helped form the Canadian Junior A Hockey League in 1993. The forwardness of the new Junior "A" league drew the interest of the Aurora franchise. They joined the league in 1992, reverting back to the old "Tigers" nickname. The Tigers won the Metro league title in 1997 and moved to the OPJHL—a year before the Metro folded. The '''Southern Ontario Junior A Hockey League''' was a Tier II Junior "A" ice hockey that lasted from the late 1960s until 1977 in Southern Ontario, Canada. The league was swallowed by what is now called the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League in 1977. It is home to 1,700 different trees and shrubs (species, subspecies). Almost all of the trees and shrubs are indigenous to Southern Ontario. There is an emphasis on woody plants at the Arboretum. The Arboretum has a large plant collection (over 40 collections) and these include native plant as well as introduced species. The collections are used for research, public education, landscape examples, habitat restoration examples and genetic diversity of rare plants. The collections provide a variety of form and color. The collection labels are very detailed and include not only the common English name, but the Latin botanic name as well as the family name (common and Latin) as well as the natural distribution. Some of the collections include the Dogwood Family Collection and the Bean Family Collection. There are plant collections as well as a horticultural collection. Summary Unlike the majority of Haldimand or Norfolk County, Nanticoke a highly industralized community. Its industries supply up to 4000MW of electric energy to Southern Ontario through the Nanticoke Generating Station. This community is southeast of Simcoe (Simcoe, Ontario) in neighbouring Norfolk County (Norfolk County, Ontario) and south of Brantford (Brantford, Ontario). Nanticoke's residential area is bordered on the west by the Nanticoke Industrial Park, home to the U. S. Steel Canada Lake Erie Works (Stelco Lake Erie Works) and a number of smaller businesses, including Nelson Steel, Charles Jones Industrial , ESM, and Air Products. The neighbouring Esso Refinery Nanticoke on the northeast, and the Nanticoke Generating Station on the southeast are not part of the Industrial Park land, although this is frequently confused due to their proximity. thumb View of downtown Toronto (File:Toronto - ON - Toronto Skyline2.jpg) '''Toronto (w:Toronto)''' is the most populous city (w:List of the 100 largest municipalities in Canada by population) in Canada and the provincial (w:Provinces and territories of Canada) capital (w:capital city) of Ontario (w:Ontario).

United States , Western Pennsylvania, and Southern Ontario. It operates mostly in cities not served by Major (Major League Baseball) or Minor League Baseball teams and is not affiliated with either. Though not part of the official minor league system, those who are in the know consider its level of play to be comparable to low A-level. The league was formed in 1993, and is the oldest currently running independent league. The network has its origins in a regional television station (CIII-DT) of the same name, serving Southern Ontario, which launched in 1974. The Ontario station was soon purchased by the now-defunct CanWest Global Communications (Canwest), and that company gradually expanded its national reach in the subsequent decades. The national entity was known as the '''CanWest Global System''' until adopting the Ontario station's branding in 1997. thumb left 150px The original logo (1974-1997) of Global featured a stylized "G". (File:Global original.PNG) In the 1970s, a call went out for "third" television stations in several major cities in Canada. A group of investors, led by Al Bruner and Peter Hill (Peter Hill (journalist)), founded Global Communications Ltd. with the idea of building a cross-Canada, all-UHF (Ultra high frequency) network. The group had to settle for a six-transmitter network in Southern (Southern Ontario) Ontario, stretching from Windsor (Windsor, Ontario) to Ottawa, but were denied a transmitter in Maxville (Maxville, Ontario) that would reach Montreal. The group promised a high level of Canadian content and agreed not to accept local advertising. The new network, called the Global Television Network, launched on January 6, 1974 when CKGN-TV (CIII-DT) signed on from studios (a former factory) in Don Mills (Don Mills, Ontario) at 6 PM The '''Niagara Hostel''' is a hostel in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

Southern Ontario

'''Southern Ontario''' is a region of the province (Provinces and territories of Canada) of Ontario, Canada. It is the most densely populated and southernmost region in Canada. Situated south of Algonquin Park, it covers between 14 to 15% of the province, depending on the inclusion of the Parry Sound (Parry Sound District, Ontario) and Muskoka (District Municipality of Muskoka) districts.

Southern Ontario differs greatly from Northern Ontario, in that it has a larger population, different climate, and different culture than its northern counterpart. It is broken into smaller subregions, including Central Ontario, Eastern Ontario, Southwestern Ontario, and the Golden Horseshoe.
