Ontario is Canada's most populated province. Home to Ottawa (the nation's capital city), Toronto (it's biggest metropolis) and the country's most diversified economy, its no wonder that one of every three Canadians live in this province. With more than 250,000 lakes containing nearly a third of the world's fresh water and the world-renowned Niagara Falls amongst its scenic landscape, Ontario attracts many visitors as well.
With industries ranging from cultivating crops, to mining minerals, to manufacturing automobiles, to designing software and leading-edge technology, Ontario's economy thrives through its unique combination of resources, manufacturing expertise, exports and a drive for innovation. In fact, Ontario generates 37% of the national GDP and is home to almost 50% of all employees in high tech, financial services and other knowledge-intensive industries.
Not only is Ontario part of North America's manufacturing heartland, it lies in the core of the North American Free Trade area, which generates a combined gross domestic product of more than $18 trillion. In 2011, more than $ 1.4 billion crossed the Canada-U.S. border each day and Ontario-US trade accounted for approximately C$ 716 million of that amount. The busiest transborder trucking routes were Ontario-U.S. central region, Ontario-U.S. south region and Ontario-U.S. northeast region. Combined, they accounted for almost 80 per cent of the shipments. Ontario and Quebec also shares the main interprovincial trucking flow within the entire country, which was last estimated to be $40.4 billion worth of commodities.
Needless to say, truck drivers are not only essential to Ontario's thriving economy, they are what keeps goods flowing across the border and are the back bone of North America's free trade.
