Ontario is one of the thirteen provinces and territories of Canada. Located in Central Canada, it is Canada’s most populous province, with 38.3 percent of the country’s population, and is the second-largest province in overall area. Ontario is the fourth-largest jurisdiction in overall location when the areas of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut are consisted of. It is home to the country’s capital city, Ottawa, and the nation’s most populated city, Toronto, which is likewise Ontario’s provincial capital.
Ontario is surrounded by the province of Manitoba to the west, Hudson Bay and James Bay to the north, and Quebec to the east and northeast, and to the south by the U.S. states of (from west to east) Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York. Nearly all of Ontario’s 2,700 km (1,678 mi) border with the United States follows inland waterways: from the westerly Lake of the Woods, eastward along the significant rivers and lakes of the Great Lakes/Saint Lawrence River drainage system. These consist of Rainy River, Pigeon River, Lake Superior, St. Marys River, Lake Huron, St. Clair River, Lake St. Clair, Detroit River, Lake Erie, Niagara River, Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River from Kingston, Ontario, to the Quebec border just east of Cornwall, Ontario. There is only about 1 km (0.6 mi) of land border, made up of portages, consisting of Height of Land Portage on the Minnesota border.
Ontario is often conceptually divided into two regions, Northern Ontario and Southern Ontario. The excellent majority of Ontario’s population and arable land remains in the south. On the other hand, the larger, northern part of Ontario is sparsely populated with cold winter seasons and heavy forestation.
