Ontario

The Ontario Region

This page provides information about the LIPs in the Ontario Region. The census geographies used by these LIPs are defined at the bottom of this page, along with dashboard data and definition sources. These can also be found in the Dashboard Dictionary (dated 2020-02-03). 

Geographies and their data boundaries are listed below, starting with Canada and the Ontario Region. Listed alphabetically within the region are its provinces and territories. In this case, only the province of Ontario is listed, which uses the same data as the Ontario Region. Listed under the province are the LIPs within it, also in alphabetical order. Data for all of these geographies will be visible once the dashboard is fully populated (in the fall of 2020). Where additional local data or information has been provided by a LIP, links are shown following the data boundary description.
