The Regional Municipality of Niagara, more commonly referred to as the Niagara Region or simply the Region of Niagara, is a regional municipality located in Southern Ontario, Canada. It is comprised of a total of twelve different municipalities. Thorold is the location of the regional seat. It is the terminus of the Golden Horseshoe, which is the most populous metropolitan area in all of Canada.
The majority of the Niagara Peninsula is covered by this region. It is bounded to the east by the Niagara River, which is also the border between Canada and the state of New York in the United States. Lake Ontario can be found to the north, while Lake Erie can be found to the south of this region.
Because of its one-of-a-kind natural landscapes, the Niagara Region has emerged as a significant economic hub for agriculture and tourism in Canada. The production of wine, also known as viticulture, is Niagara’s most significant contribution to the agricultural industry. One of Canada’s most popular tourist destinations is the world-famous Niagara Falls, while the Niagara Wine Route, which features dozens of wineries and connects tourists to all of them, is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination. The Shaw Festival, which takes place each year in Niagara-on-the-Lake, as well as the Welland Canal, are two of the primary attractions that contribute to the Regional Municipality of Niagara’s up to 12 million annual visitors.
