Hamilton is a fast-growing community rich in cultural heritage and home to both natural and man-made wonders. Although its history goes back much further, the city was founded shortly after the war of 1812 by George Hamilton, a merchant, soldier and politician. It has a long history of hard work and ingenuity, and while it has changed and grown significantly over the past few centuries, the city has not lost its down-to-earth and spirited attitude towards life.

The Niagara Escarpment bisects the upper and lower regions of the city and was recently named a World Biosphere Reserve. More than 80 waterfalls have been identified in the area, which led to the city being nicknamed “The City of Waterfalls”. While the escarpment runs from New York to Owen Sound and beyond, no one is more proud of this geological feature than Hamiltonians, who lovingly refer to it as “the Mountain.” No one can resist the breathtaking view of the lower city and Lake Ontario from the edge. It’s probably this feature that has inspired the city to preserve even more green space. Hamilton also boasts hundreds of parks and conservation areas for residents to enjoy.

In addition to natural attractions, the city is home to a wide variety of activities truly encompassing its multicultural roots. From the Art Gallery of Hamilton and the city’s five museums to Hamilton Place, FirstOntario Centre (formerly Copps Coliseum) and hundreds of festivals and local events, there’s always something going on.
