Ontario is a province in central Canada, occupying the area north of the Great Lakes. This is the home of Canada's biggest city, Toronto, Canada's capital Ottawa, and also one half of Niagara falls, probably the world's best-known waterfall (the other half resides in New York State). The southern portion is dominated by farms and cities, while the northern 9/10ths is dominated by rocky woodlands.
This is the 5th edition of this web site, which was first created in 1999. Between May 2012 and May 2014, the web pages on this site were viewed over 370,000 times.
If you enjoy the web site, please consider purchasing the book called "Waterfalls of Ontario." This was published by Firefly Books in 2003. After the sale of 10,000 copies, a second edition was published in 2011. At $29, it makes a great gift for the outdoors enthusiast or nature lover.
Of course, I've had an enormous amount of help from many other waterfall fans. Through the years, users of this site have contributed hundreds of photographs of waterfalls. Many of the pictures are for sites that I haven't visited, or, that I visited long before I had a decent camera. Without their help, this web site wouldn't be the same.
A special thanks goes out to Gord Collins and Steve "Indonesia" Jones, who have both contributed a large number of photographs. This site certainly wouldn't be the same without their input. A number of other people have provided photos and updates on sites. I can't remember everyone that has provided information. Sorry! But I do know that the following people have contributed photographs:
Thanks everyone! And thanks to those that I may have missed! Please let me know if I forgot to add you to the list. Also, let me know if you want a link to your web site.
