Found in southern Ontario between two of North America’s Great Lakes (Ontario and Erie) the Niagara region is a very diverse municipality.
Our natural features, rich soils and unique climate have contributed to some of the best farmland to be found anywhere. Niagara’s farmlands are promoted through many local markets as well as extensive worldwide distribution. Niagara has become renowned for its award winning wine industry.
With many other natural features such as the Niagara Escarpment, miles of parks and beaches, not to mention Niagara Falls itself, it is not surprising that the Niagara region is host to more than 12 million visitors a year. Tourism is a booming industry in this region. From the historic landmarks and quaint shopping opportunities of Niagara-on-the-Lake, to the modern and lavish atmosphere of Casino Niagara, you can find an ample supply of things to see and do in Niagara. The region has an abundance of walking trails, cycling and driving routes, such as the Niagara Parkway that follows the Niagara River, to the Niagara Wine Route. The Niagara Wine Route connects at least 22 wineries, through some of the prettiest countryside in Ontario. Niagara is home to many four star accommodations varying from all-suite "convention centre equipped" hotels to charming and memorable Bed & Breakfasts.
The Welland Canal, which is a true tourist attraction in its own right, is also one of the major factors in Niagara’s focus on transportation. We are bordered to the east by New York state. With four driving bridges less than an hour away from major Canadian cities such as Hamilton and Toronto, and extensive rail lines, not to mention a district airport, Niagara has proven to be a vital link to businesses in both the United States and Canada.
Niagara, which covers 1896 sq. km (715 sq. miles), is made up of 12 unique and distinct local municipalities . Varying from the larger populated cities of St. Catharines and Niagara Falls with their urban intensive features, to Wainfleet and West Lincoln with a more rural or natural area setting. Tourism, industry and farming, not to mention all the natural resources including our vast mineral resources (pits and quarries) and environmental resources (peat and petroleum), all add to Niagara’s economic diversity.
The contrasting municipal features and unique natural landscape contribute to the diverseness of the Regional Municipality of Niagara.
