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

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.

In Atlantic Canada you can also find donair meat used in offerings such as donair sausage, donair egg rolls (an egg roll casing stuffed with donair meat), donair pogos (donair meet on a stick, battered and deep-fried, similar to a corn dog), donair calzones panzerottis, and in donair poutine (French fries topped with cheese curds, donair meat and donair sauce or gravy or a combination). Donair sauce is used as a dipping sauce


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).

His drawing style is noted for being strongly influenced by the classic cartoonists of ''The New Yorker (The New Yorker#Cartoons)''. His work is highly nostalgic, especially for the early-to-mid-20th Century period, and of Southern Ontario. His work also shows a great depth and breadth of knowledge of the history of comics and cartooning. The settlers and traders from the British Isles account for the culinary influences of early English Canada in the Maritimes and Southern Ontario (Upper Canada), while French settlers account for the cuisine of southern Quebec (Lower Canada), Northern Ontario, and New Brunswick. Many of the more south western regions of Ontario have strong Dutch and Scandinavian influences, while German (Cuisine of Germany), Ukrainian (Ukrainian cuisine), and Polish cuisines are strong influences to the cuisine of the western Canadian provinces. Also noteworthy is the cuisine of the Doukhobors, Russian-descended vegetarians. '''Eastern Ontario''' (census population 1,603,625 in 2006) is a subregion of Southern Ontario in the Canadian (Canada) province (Provinces and territories of Canada) of Ontario which lies in a wedge-shaped area between the Ottawa River and St. Lawrence River. It shares water boundaries with Quebec to the north and New York State to the east and south, as well as a small land boundary with the Vaudreuil-Soulanges (Vaudreuil-Soulanges Regional County Municipality, Quebec) region of Quebec to the east. Along the extreme western edge of Eastern Ontario are a continuation of the Laurentian Highlands, known as the Opeongo Hills, and they contain some of the highest elevations in Southern Ontario. They stretch into the northern portions of Central Ontario, near Algonquin Provincial Park. '''Central Ontario''' is a subregion of Southern Ontario in the Canadian (Canada) province of Ontario which lies between Georgian Bay and the eastern end of Lake Ontario. Along the northern edge of Central Ontario, are some of the highest elevations in Southern Ontario. These highlands (Highland (geography)) are known as the Opeongo Hills, and they stretch into portions of Eastern Ontario as well. Ottawa is located in the sub-region of Southern Ontario called Eastern Ontario. Gatineau is located in southwestern Quebec. It is situated close to where the Canadian shield and the Saint Lawrence Lowlands intersect.

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.
