Holland Landing is a community in the town of East Gwillimbury, located in the northern part of the Regional Municipality of York, in south-central Ontario, Canada. Its major road is Yonge Street and the community has bus service by GO Transit route 68 and York Region Transit route 52; the East Gwillimbury GO train station is in the southeast corner of Holland Landing, providing weekday commuter train service. The East Holland River has several marinas for recreational boats. Most of Holland Landing's internal economy is based on the service industry, some manufacturing. In 1793, Governor John Graves Simcoe came across what would be the future site of Holland Landing known as St. Albans, he believed the area would make an ideal portage route and defence point between York and Georgian Bay. Holland Landing was named after Samuel Holland, first Surveyor-General of British North America, who had served on HMS Pembroke, under Captain John Simcoe, father of Governor Simcoe, for whom Lake Simcoe is named.
Holland Landing was the northernmost point on the original alignment of Yonge Street. North of the town the Holland River is navigable, the location was selected as a well sited inland port for Lake Simcoe, via the river, it was intended that Yonge Street, in combination with the similar Penetanguishene Road further north, would provide access to the upper Great Lakes from the city of York. Holland Landing would be a major point on this route. However, it never served this intended role in any real capacity; the closest it came was during the War of 1812, when the British decided to retake the entire lake system through the construction of a number of first-rate ships in Kingston and Penetanguishene. A large anchor, over fifteen feet long and weighing 4000 lbs, for the frigate under construction at Penetanguishene was shipped from England and had made it as far as Holland Landing when the war ended. Today it is on display at Anchor Park; the town itself was not formed until the early 19th century, settled by the same Quaker immigrants as nearby Newmarket and Aurora.
In 1815, a population of settlers from Selkirk, Manitoba arrived in Holland Landing after a conflict between them and the Métis. Samuel Lount, a martyr of the 1837 Rebellion led by William Lyon Mackenzie and operated a smithy here. Lount was captured convicted of treason, hanged on April 12, 1838; the idea for a canal linking to Lake Simcoe and the Trent-Severn Waterway was approved and construction started in 1906. Holland Landing would connect Bradford, it was complete in the summer of 1912 – three lift locks, three swing bridges and a turning basin – when the new government of Robert Borden cancelled the project. The project was abandoned, earning it the name "The Ghost Canal", it continues to serve as a historical landmark. Population: 2006: about 8,500 - estimate based on the census population of East Gwillimbury, the town's data which indicate 41% of its residents are in Holland Landing. 2015: about 9,000 The community has four primary schools. There are no higher education institutions in Holland Landing, or indeed in East Gwillimbury.
Students from Holland Landing attend one of the high schools in Newmarket. Bradford, northwest Queensville, northeast Sharon, east Newmarket, south Kettleby, southwest Ansnorveldt, west Keswick, north
Lake Joseph is located in Seguin Township, Ontario. The lake is surrounded by many cottages. Lake Joseph is connected to Lake Rosseau through the narrows at the Joseph River. There are many community groups based on Lake Joseph; the largest of these is the Muskoka Lakes Association.

Not to be confused with Canadian Transportation Agency. Transport Canada is the department within the Government of Canada responsible for developing regulations and services of transportation in Canada, it is part of the Transportation and Communities portfolio. The current Minister of Transport is Marc Garneau. Transport Canada is headquartered in Ontario; the Department of Transport was created in 1935 by the government of William Lyon Mackenzie King in recognition of the changing transportation environment in Canada at the time. It merged three departments: the former Department of Railways and Canals, the Department of Marine and Fisheries, the Civil Aviation Branch of the Department of National Defence under C. D. Howe, who would use the portfolio to rationalize the governance and provision of all forms of transportation, he created Trans-Canada Air Lines. The Department of Transport Act came into force November 2, 1936. Prior to a 1994 federal government reorganization, Transport Canada had a wide range of operational responsibilities including the Canadian Coast Guard, the Saint Lawrence Seaway and seaports, as well as Via Rail and CN Rail.
Significant cuts to Transport Canada at that time resulted in CN Rail being privatized, the coast guard being transferred to Fisheries and Oceans, the seaway and various ports and airports being transferred to local operating authorities. Transport Canada emerged from this process as a department focused on policy and regulation rather than transportation operations. In 2004, Transport Canada introduced non-passenger screening to enhance both airport and civil aviation security. Transport Canada's headquarters are located in Ottawa at Place de Ville, Tower C. Transport Canada has regional headquarters in: Vancouver – Government of Canada Building on Burrard Street and Robson Street Edmonton – Canada Place, 9700 Jasper Avenue NW Winnipeg – Macdonald Building, 344 Edmonton Street Toronto – Government of Canada Building, 4900 Yonge Street Dorval – Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport, 700 Place Leigh-Capreol Moncton – Heritage Building, 95 Foundry Street Minister of Transport Marc GarneauDeputy Minister, Transport Canada Michael KeenanAssociate Deputy Minister, Thao Pham Assistant Deputy Minister and Security, Kevin Brousseau Associate Assistant Deputy Minister and Security, Aaron McCrombie Assistant Deputy Minister, Pierre-Marc Mongeau Associate Assistant Deputy Minister and Lead, Navigation Protection Act Review, Catherine Higgens Assistant Deputy Minister, Lawrence Hanson Assistant Deputy Minister, Corporate Services, André Lapointe Assistant Deputy Minister, Natasha Rascanin Director General, Corporate Secretariat, Tom Oommen Director General and Marketing, Dan Dugas Regional Director General, Atlantic Region, Ann Mowatt Regional Director General, Quebec Region, Albert Deschamps Regional Director General, Ontario Region, Tamara Rudge Regional Director General and Northern Region, Michele Taylor Regional Director General, Pacific Region, Robert Dick Departmental General Counsel, Henry K.

Fort McMurray is a population centre, technically classified as an urban service area, in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo in Alberta, Canada. It is located in northeast Alberta, in the middle of the Athabasca oil sands, surrounded by boreal forest, it has played a significant role in the development of the national petroleum industry. A severe wildfire in May 2016 caused widespread damage. A city, Fort McMurray became an urban service area when it amalgamated with Improvement District No. 143 on April 1, 1995, to create the Municipality of Wood Buffalo. Despite its current official designation of urban service area, many locals and the media still refer to Fort McMurray as a city. Fort McMurray was known as McMurray between 1947 and 1962. Before the arrival of Europeans in the late 18th Century, the Cree were the dominant First Nations people in the Fort McMurray area; the Athabasca oil sands were known to the locals and the surface deposits were used to waterproof their canoes. In fur trade days the location of Fort McMurray was an important junction on the fur trade route from eastern Canada to the Athabasca country.
In 1778, the first European explorer, Peter Pond, came to the region in search of furs, as the European demand for this commodity at the time was strong. Pond explored the region farther south along the Athabasca River and the Clearwater River, but chose to set up a trading post much farther north by the Athabasca River near Lake Athabasca. However, his post closed in 1788 in favour of Fort Chipewyan, now the oldest continuous settlement in Alberta. In 1790, the explorer Alexander MacKenzie made the first recorded description of the oil sands. By that time, trading between the explorers and the Cree was occurring at the confluence of the Clearwater and Athabasca Rivers; the Hudson's Bay Company and the North West Company were in fierce competition in this region. Fort McMurray was established there as a Hudson's Bay Company post by 1870, named for Factor William McMurray, it continued to operate as a transportation stopover in the decades afterwards. The Alberta and Great Waterways Railway arrived in 1915 complementing existing steamboat service.
The community has played a significant role in the history of the petroleum industry in Canada. Oil exploration is known to have occurred in the early 20th century, but Fort McMurray's population remained small, no more than a few hundred people. By 1921, there was serious interest in developing a refining plant to separate the oil from the sands. Alcan Oil Company was the first outfit to begin bulk tests at Fort McMurray; the nearby community of Waterways was established to provide a terminus for waterborne transportation, until 1925, when the Alberta and Great Waterways Railway reached there. Abasands Oil was the first company to extract oil from the oil sands through hot water extraction by the 1930s, but production was low. Fort McMurray's processing output grew to over 1,100 barrels/day by World War II, Fort McMurray was set up by the US and Canadian forces as staging ground for the Canol project. Fort McMurray and Waterways amalgamated as the village of McMurray by 1947, became a town a year later.
Fort McMurray was granted the status of new town. By 1966, the town's population was over 2,000. In 1967, the Great Canadian Oil Sands plant opened and Fort McMurray's growth soon took off. More oil sands plants were opened after 1973 and 1979, when serious political tensions and conflicts in the Middle East triggered oil price spikes; the population of the town reached 6,847 by 1971 and climbed to 31,000 by 1981, a year after its incorporation as a city. The city continued to grow for a few years after the oil bust caused by the collapse in world oil prices; the population peaked at 37,000 in 1985 declined to under 34,000 by 1989. Low oil prices since the oil price collapse in 1986 slowed the oil sands production as oil extraction from the oil sands is a expensive process and lower world prices made this uneconomical. Oil price increases since 2003 made oil extraction profitable again for around a decade, until another slump in oil prices which began in December 2014 and deepened in 2015 resulted in layoffs and postponement of projects.
On April 1, 1995, the City of Fort McMurray and Improvement District No. 143 were amalgamated to form the Municipality of Wood Buffalo. The new municipality was subsequently renamed the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo on August 14, 1996; as a result, Fort McMurray was no longer designated a city. Instead, it was designated an urban service area within a specialized municipality; the amalgamation resulted in the entire RM of Wood Buffalo being under a single government. Its municipal office is located in Fort McMurray. On May 3, 2016, a large wildfire burning southwest of Fort McMurray resulted in the mandatory evacuation of the city. Record-breaking temperatures, reaching 32.8 °C, low relative humidity and strong winds contributed to the fire's rapid growth in forests affected by "an unusually dry and warm winter". More than 100,000 people in the city and surrounding region were evacuated, it was Canada's largest recorded wildfire evacuation in history and third-largest recorded environmental disaster evacuation behind the 1979 Mississauga train derailment and the 1950 Red River flood.
About one-fifth of homes in the city were reported to be destroyed in the fire. Fort McMurray is 435 kilometres northeast of Edmonton on Highway 63, about 60 kilometres west of the Saskatchewa
London is a city in Southwestern Ontario, Canada along the Quebec City–Windsor Corridor. The city had a population of 383,822 according to the 2016 Canadian census. London is at the confluence of the Thames River 200 km from both Toronto and Detroit; the city of London is a separated municipality, politically separate from Middlesex County, though it remains the county seat. London and the Thames were named in 1793 by John Graves Simcoe, who proposed the site for the capital city of Upper Canada; the first European settlement was between 1804 by Peter Hagerman. The village was founded in 1826 and incorporated in 1855. Since London has grown to be the largest Southwestern Ontario municipality and Canada's 11th largest metropolitan area, having annexed many of the smaller communities that surrounded it. London is a regional centre of healthcare and education, being home to the University of Western Ontario, Fanshawe College, several hospitals; the city hosts a number of musical and artistic exhibits and festivals, which contribute to its tourism industry, but its economic activity is centred on education, medical research and information technology.
London's university and hospitals are among its top ten employers. London lies at the junction of Highway 401 and 402, connecting it to Toronto and Sarnia, it has an international airport and bus station. Prior to European contact in the 18th century, the present site of London was occupied by several Neutral and Ojibwe villages. Archaeological investigations in the region show aboriginal people have resided in the area for at least the past 10,000 years; the current location of London was selected as the site of the future capital of Upper Canada in 1793 by Lieutenant-Governor John Graves Simcoe, who named the village, founded in 1826. It did not become the capital Simcoe envisioned. Rather, it was an administrative seat for the area west of York. Locally, it was part of the Talbot Settlement, named for Colonel Thomas Talbot, the chief coloniser of the area, who oversaw the land surveying and built the first government buildings for the administration of the Western Ontario peninsular region.
Together with the rest of Southwestern Ontario, the village benefited from Talbot's provisions, not only for building and maintaining roads but for assignment of access priorities to main routes to productive land. At the time and clergy reserves were receiving preference in the rest of Ontario. In 1814, there was a skirmish during the War of 1812 in what is now southwest London at Reservoir Hill Hungerford Hill. In 1832, the new settlement suffered an outbreak of cholera. London proved a centre of strong Tory support during the Upper Canada Rebellion of 1837, notwithstanding a brief rebellion led by Charles Duncombe; the British government located its Ontario peninsular garrison there in 1838, increasing its population with soldiers and their dependents, the business support populations they required. London was incorporated as a town in 1840. On 13 April 1845, fire destroyed much of London, at the time constructed of wooden buildings. One of the first casualties was the town's only fire engine.
The fire burned nearly 30 acres of land, destroying 150 buildings, before burning itself out the same day. One-fifth of London was destroyed and this was the province's first million dollar fire. Sir John Carling, Tory MP for London, gave three events to explain the development of London in a 1901 speech, they were: the location of the court and administration in London in 1826. The population in 1846 was 3,500. Brick buildings included a jail and court house, large barracks. London had a fire company, a theatre, a large Gothic church, nine other churches or chapels, two market buildings. In 1845, a fire destroyed 150 buildings but most had been rebuilt by 1846. Connection with other communities was by road using stages that ran daily. A weekly newspaper was published and mail was received daily by the post office. On 1 January 1855, London was incorporated as a "city". In the 1860s, a sulphur spring was discovered at the forks of the Thames River while industrialists were drilling for oil; the springs became a popular destination for wealthy Ontarians, until the turn of the 20th century when a textile factory was built at the site, replacing the spa.
Records from 1869 indicate a population of about 18,000 served by three newspapers, churches of all major denominations and offices of all the major banks. Industry included several tanneries, oil refineries and foundries, four flour mills, the Labatt Brewing Company and the Carling brewery in addition to other manufacturing. Both the Great Western and Grand Trunk railways had stops here. Several insurance companies had offices in the city; the Crystal Palace Barracks, built in 1861, an octagonal brick building with eight doors and forty-eight windows, was used for events such the Provincial Agricultural Fair of Canada West held in London that year. It was visited by Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught and Strathearn, Governor-General John Young, 1st Baron Lisgar and Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald.. Long before the Royal Military College of Canada was established in 1876, there were proposals for military colleges in Canada. Staffed by British Regulars, adult male students underwent a 3 month long military courses from 1865 at the School of Military Instruction in London.
Established by Militia General Order in 1865, the school enabled Officers of Militia or Candidates for Commission or promotion in the M
Burns Lake is a rural village in the North-Central Interior of British Columbia, incorporated in 1923. The village has a population of 1,779 according to the 2016 Census; the Village is renowned for its rich First Nations heritage, for its extensive network of mountain biking trails, which have received international acclaim by becoming Canada's first IMBA Ride Centre. In winter, cross country skiing trails and snowmobile wilderness trails are created. Burns Lake is located in the midst of a large networks of lakes called the Lakes District, with fishing and hunting year round, water activities in the summer months. There are two First Nations reserves that are part of the town, another four nearby, making it one of the few communities in the province that have equal populations of persons of native or European descent. Local nations include Wet'suwet'en First Nation, Lake Babine Nation, Cheslatta Band, Ts'il Kaz Koh First Nation, Skin Tyee band and Nee Tahi Buhn band; the town serves as a hub for the local logging, saw-milling and tourist industries.
It serves as the main commercial centre for the surrounding area including Francois Lake, Grassy Plains, Rose Lake and Granisle. There are three pubs, many cafes and restaurants a selection of stores and services, numerous hotels and motels, a library and a hospital, it is the location of the head offices of the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako. Burns Lake's first inhabitants were the Carrier First Nations communities that spanned much of the Lakes District and beyond. Burns Lake itself began as a small rest stop for travelers on their way to the Yukon Gold Rush. Many of these travelers spotted opportunity in the rich forestry and mining opportunities in Burns Lake and the surrounding area. Burns Lake acquired its name after Michael Byrnes, an explorer for the Collins Overland Telegraph scheme. Byrnes passed Burns lake in about 1866 while surveying a route from Fort Fraser to Hagwilget. Recent research indicates that Byrnes was a miner during the Cariboo Gold Rush and had staked a claim on William's Creek earlier, in 1861.
On the 1866 trail map of the area, the name'Byrnes' Lake appears. Bob Gerow, one of the main founders of Burns Lake, entered into partnership with Jack Seely and Howard Laidlaw to create Burns Lake Trading Company. Together, they built a store/hotel and a sawmill on Gerow Island, which would become the hub of trade for the surrounding area; the Village was incorporated on December 6, 1923. The first Mayor was G. M Gerow; the first newspaper in Burns Lake was called the Observer and edited by Sidney Godwin. In the late 1950s, another newspaper called the Observer, was operated by Ralph Vipond, it closed in 1961. The town continued to grow throughout the 20th century, its current industries have become forestry and tourism, though many workers commute to jobs in the mining industry. Burns Lake received nationwide attention on January 20, 2012, when an explosion destroyed Babine Forest Products, a wood mill, one of the town's primary employers. A number of historic buildings still stand including: First built in 1933 by the Women's Missionary Society of the United Church of Canada, the hospital was opened by Canada's former Governor General Lord Tweedsmuir.
Once the largest and finest public buildings between Prince George and Prince Rupert, it was famous for its fine gardens. It was occupied by a senior citizens apartment complex declared a heritage building in 1982 and redeveloped as an office building by its owner, the Burns Lake Native Development Corporation. Located adjacent to the Burns Lake Museum, this square-cut log building is a former fur trade post which became a gambling den. Due to the nature of gambling, fights broke out in the building, it now contains a display of historical artifacts from the life of Craig Wafflehouse, one of the founders of Burns Lake. Burns Lake has a humid continental climate with cold winters. Average winter snowfall is 190 cm. In June 1982 Burns Lake recorded 376.5 hours of sunshine. This is most sunshine recorded in British Columbia during the month of June. Burns Lake is located on Highway 16. Major commercial airlines fly into Smithers Airport, 150 km west of Burns Lake, as well as Prince George Airport, 230 km east of Burns Lake.
Via Rail's Jasper – Prince Rupert train calls at the Burns Lake railway station several times per week. Greyhound had a regular bus service through the area. A ferry is available to cross Francois Lake, directly below Burns Lake; the ferry is used to get to Grassy Plains.
