Why moving to Ontario is a great idea

A water lover’s dream. If you love everything about water, then you’ll love living in Ontario. There are more than 250,000 lakes and 60,000 miles or river – not to mention the amazing Niagara Falls. So whether it’s freshwater fishing, ice fishing, kayaking, or just chasing waterfalls, a move to Ontario means lots of water fun.

The economy. Ontario is a manufacturing province, accounting for many of the total national shipments. The Niagara River makes Ontario prime for hydroelectric energy, with a strong percentage of all energy in the province coming from hydroelectric sources. Toronto is the center of Canada’s financial and banking industries, as well as IT companies in the Ottawa area. In Northern Ontario, mining and forestry are popular industries.

Natural beauty. Cyclers, climbers, hikers, skiers, and everyone else who finds joy in the great outdoors has adventure waiting for them in Ontario. With miles of hiking trails, acre after acre of untamed forest, mountain peaks and valleys, there’s really no other place like Ontario for outdoor living. When you want all of the beauty with less adventure, the Royal Botanical Gardens, located in Burlington, is a great place for anyone to enjoy magnificent scenery and plant life.  Active life in Ontario means gorgeous scenery and seasonal festivals in the spring and summer, vibrant colors and local arts in the fall, and winter sports and ice wine festivals in the winter.

Education. The province has 22 public universities, 24 public colleges, three Institutes of Technology and Advanced Learning, 17 private, religious universities, and more than 500 private, career colleges. No matter what you want to study, there’s sure to be an institution of higher learning to fit your needs. If you need help applying to Ontario colleges and universities, check out the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre and the Ontario College Application Service.

With so much to do and see, you’re going to love moving to Ontario!
