Canada Most people's conception of Canada goes little beyond appreciating its vastness, recognizing its flag and identifying a few well-known physical features. And while it's true that the majority of travelers are attracted by the opportunity to explore Canada's wilderness areas, natural wonders and low-key rural charm, there is a lot more to Canada than maple trees, Niagara Falls and wide open spaces. It's the edginess between Canada's indigenous, French and British traditions that gives the nation its complex three-dimensional character. Add to this a constant infusion of US culture and a plethora of traditions brought from Europe, Asia and Latin America by migrants, and you have a thriving multicultural society very much in the process of forming its own identity. Those expecting Canada to be a blander counterpart of the USA should check their preconceptions at the door - Canada's wild northern frontier, which has etched itself into the national psyche, and its distinct patchwork of peoples have created a country that is decidedly different from its southern neighbour.


Discover a place so diverse that all your hearts desires can be fulfilled. Ontario is the shimmering waters of more than 250,000 lakes and 100,000 km (60,000 mi.) of rivers, vast tracts of towering forests, long sandy beaches and the natural wonder of Niagara Falls. It is cosmopolitan cities offering world-class entertainment, shopping and dining. And charming small towns with lots of local colour. Ontario is canoeing, hiking, cruising, hiking, diving, rafting and a place where the fishing season lasts 12 months. Ontario is inviting accommodations ranging from hotels and resorts, to quaint country inns and B&Bs to rustic cottages or camping under the stars. Wherever you go and whatever you do, there's always more to discover in Ontario. ONTARIO
