Ontario is Canada's most heavily-populated province, with most people living within a few hundred kilometres of the Great Lakes. From the farmland, small towns and cities of the south to the wilderness Pre-Cambrian Shield region of the north, Ontario has many rivers, lakes, forests and parks that offer visitors a wealth of recreational activities including camping, swimming, fishing, boating, skiing, hiking and sight-seeing.
