Northwest Ontario
Fishing, Hunting & Travel Map

Cities Overview

Although our area of Ontario is very large in size (about the size of the state of Minnesota), the population is quite low- only 50,000 in all that area. Also 50% of our land is covered in fresh water lakes, making large centres difficult to build. That means no major centres spoil the boreal wilderness of our area. Smaller towns provide you with every need, from accommodations to dining, recreation, shopping & site seeing.
