Ontario Industry

Ontario Industry

Natural resource based industries such as forestry and mining are an important part of the economy in northern Ontario, while southern Ontario has become a manufacturing centre.  Most Ontarians (70 per cent), however, are employed in the service industries such as business, finance, tourism and culture.



The boreal forests in northern Ontario support the province's timber industry.  With an area of 50 million hectares, the boreal forest is Ontario’s largest forest region and contains two thirds of Ontario’s forest.

The Ontario boreal forest region extends from the northern limits of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence forest to the Hudson Bay Lowlands.  Here the main coniferous tree species are black and white spruce, jack pine, balsam fir, tamarack and eastern white cedar.  The predominant deciduous tree species are poplars and white birch.
