The province of Ontario is located in eastern Canada and has two distinct regions: Northern Ontario and Southern Ontario. Southern Ontario is home to the province’s largest city, Toronto, while its capital, Ottawa, sits in Northern Ontario. Ontario has a diverse population of minorities. Historically, the land was ceded from the Aboriginal tribe in 1788 and, through the current day, has a small population of Aboriginal and Inuit people in the province as well as a mix of Europeans, Asians, Africans, Latin Americans, and Caribbean that account for 26% of the population. Although the principal language of Ontario is English, about 11% of the population is French-speaking.
The largest municipalities are Toronto, Ottawa, Mississauga, Brampton, Hamilton and London. Toronto is the center of Canada’s financial services and banking industry. Ottawa’s focus is in IT, where the headquarters of RIM, the developers of the Blackberry smartphone, are based.
