The City, located in the Southern regions of Ontario is best known as an industrial hub for steel makers and international port of call for many ocean liners. Located nowhere near the ocean, but on the shores of magestic Lake Ontario, it is connected to the international waterways through the series of lakes, rivers and cannals, like the one in Welland, Ontario. With the population reaching past the 500,000, it is 9th largetst city in Canada.
The city’s wealth of heritage is authentically preserved and displayed in museums including Dundurn Castle, and the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. The newly renovated Art Gallery and vibrant performing arts companies like the Philharmonic Orchestra, Opera Hamilton and Theatre Aquarius quench the cultural thirst of audiences.
The Bruce Trail and other footpaths weave through the city’s lush surroundings and along the waterfront,
showcasing wildlife and waterfalls. Sports action occurs at Ivor Wynne Stadium in the city's east end, home to the CFL franchise, the Tiger-Cats. The Hamilton Bulldogs play at downtown’s Copps Coliseum against the aggressive challengers of the AHL.
The city is easily accessible via plane, train and automobile. Through the John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport, Air Canada and WestJet Airlines connect the city to every province in Canada, and beginning in May, 2007, www.flyglobespan.com will be offering flights to and from the United Kingdom. Amtrak and VIA Rail both reach the nearby Aldershot Station.
