South-Eastern Ontario

The Thousand Islands, The St. Lawrence, Kingston

 

The south-eastern part of Ontario is where Europeans and their descendants first settled in the province, in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.  Today the region is a fascinating mix.

   A popular vacation destination:  The Thousand Islands where Lake Ontario empties into the St. Lawrence River, first popular
     for summer getaways in the late 1800s, remain as beautiful and inviting as ever.

   An engineering triumph:  The St. Lawrence Seaway project opened the river for ocean-going vessels, added hydro-electric
     power generation, and pioneered new approaches to community displacement and heritage preservation.

   History:  The region is mindful of its past, and that's reflected at Upper Canada Village, in Prince Edward Country, and in
     the City of Kingston.
