First settled by Loyalists in the late 1700s, St. Catharines, with a population of over 130,000 people, is now the largest city in the Niagara Region. The city is located about 45 minutes south of Toronto across Lake Ontario and is often referred as “The Garden City”. This is due to the abundance of parks, gardens and trails in the city’s vicinity. Culturally, St. Catharines plays an important role in the province. The city is home to a number of art galleries and festivals, including the Folk Arts Festival.
Economically, St. Catharines’s location in the Greater Toronto Area makes the city a major proponent of commerce and trade in the province. The leading industry in St. Catharines is presently manufacturing.
