Eastern Canada comprises the central provinces of Ontario & Quebec together with the Atlantic provinces of Newfoundland, Labrador, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island and it’s relative closeness to Europe has endowed it with a rich cultural history handed down from the French, Scottish and English immigrants who settled this vast land.
Toronto and its suburbs and satellites are the thriving centre of much of the business and manufacturing activities in Eastern Canada and, with its closeness to Niagara Falls is a must see destination while close by Ottawa and its fine parliamentary and public buildings are also a popular.
