St. Catharines

'''St. Catharines''' (2011 population 131,400; metropolitan population 392,184) is the largest city in Canada's Niagara Region (Regional Municipality of Niagara, Ontario) and the sixth largest urban area in Ontario, with 96.11 square kilometres of land. It lies in Southern Ontario, 51 kilometres (32 mi) south of Toronto across Lake Ontario, and is 19 kilometres (12 mi) inland from the international boundary with the United States along the Niagara River. It is the northern entrance of the Welland Canal. Residents of St. Catharines (List of people from St. Catharines) are known as ''St. Cathariners''.

St. Catharines carries the official nickname "The Garden City" due to its 1,000 acres (4 km 2 ) of parks, gardens and trails.

St. Catharines is situated in an area for commerce and trade since it is located between the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and the Fort Erie (Fort Erie, Ontario) - US Border. Manufacturing is the city's dominant industry, as noted by the heraldic motto, "Industry and Liberality". General Motors of Canada, Ltd. (General Motors Canada), the Canadian subsidiary of General Motors (General Motors Corporation), was the city's largest employer, a distinction now held by the District School Board of Niagara. TRW Automotive operates a plant in the city, though in recent years employment there has shifted from heavy industry and manufacturing to services.

St. Catharines lies on one of the main telecommunications backbones (internet backbone) between Canada and the United States, and as a result a number of call centres operate in the city.
