There are multiple picture packages for my home province of Ontario. This page provides brief info and pointers.

Toronto is the capital of Ontario, Canada's largest city.  This section shows some of the major landmarks and other highlights that have caught my attention.  Toronto page

The Niagara Peninsula is famous for The Falls, but there's a great deal more:  a beautiful parks system with horticultural showcases, hydro-electric power developments, a thriving new wine industry, traces of the War of 1812.  Niagara Peninsula page

The Welland Canal is a commercial shipping channel that connects Lake Erie and Lake Ontario through a series of eight locks, allowing ships to bypass the step of 167 feet / 51 metres at Niagara Falls.  Welland Canal page

The Southern Ontario section features Stratford, a small city with a renowned theatre company, three places along the north shore of Lake Ontario, and images of autumn colours.  Southern Ontario page

The Georgian Bay section includes lake and cottage country scenery, unique geological formations, and two historical village recreations.  Georgian Bay page

The Kawartha Cruise section is based on a 5-day cruise that cuts across Central Ontario following the Trent-Severn Waterway from Peterborough to Big Cute near Georgian Bay. It features the civil engineering triumphs of the lock and canal builders of the early 1900s and the rugged beauty of Kawartha cottage country and the Canadian Shield.  Kawartha Cruise page

The Fall Cruises section presents fall colour photos from three afternoon lake cruises – the Island Queen from Parry Sound, Lady Muskoka from Bracebridge, and Wenonah II from Gravenhurst.  Also a visit to the Muskoka Discovery Centre, highlighting the history of the region, the development of tourism in Muskoka, and its special tradition of finely crafted motorboats.  Fall Cruises page

The Central Ontario section features the huge Algonquin Park, Canada's first provincial park and a pioneer in developing visitor services and preservation programs.  Also: fall colours in the picturesque Muskoka and Haliburton regions and in towns on the Trent-Severn Waterway.  Central Ontario page

The Northern Ontario section contains images from two rail adventures, a fall day trip in the forest north of Algonquin from North Bay to Temagami, and a six-day expedition to Moosonee and Moose Factory on the south shore of James Bay.  Northern Ontario page

Eastern Ontario is noted for its Thousand Islands vacation area and the St. Lawrence Seaway.  This region has a colourful and important history, as reflected at Upper Canada Village and at Fort Henry in Kingston.  Eastern Ontario page
