Ontario is a province in southeastern Canada. It is the most populous province and the second largest province in terms of area after Québec (Nunavut and the Northwest Territories are larger, but not provinces). Ontario is bordered by the provinces of Manitoba to the west and Québec to the east, as well as five US states to the south.
The capital of Ontario and at the same time the largest city in the country is Toronto. Ottawa, the capital of Canada, is located to the east on the border with Québec. Unlike many other territorial states, there is no separate capital district. At the 2006 census, there were 12,160,282 inhabitants, which corresponds to 38.5% of the population of Canada.
The name Ontario is an Iroquois word and means “beautiful lake” or “beautiful water”. Before the Europeans reached the region, Algonquin and Iroquois tribes inhabited the country.
