Hamilton-Ontario was named after George Hamilton in the 1820s and achieved official city status as of June 9, 1846. The town is located on the western end of the Niagara Peninsula on Lake Ontario. It is equidistant form Toronto, Canada and Buffalo, New York, United States.

The 2011 population of Hamilton-Ontario was just above 500,000 residents; the citizens are also known as Hamiltonians. The people of the First Nations had named the local bay - "Macassa" for "beautiful waters." The park system is quite extensive supporting walking, hiking, running and biking. The Bruce Trail is an extremely popular path. Hamilton has more than 100 waterfalls, including the Webster's Falls at Spencer Gorge.

Fans of Canadian Football can find their Hall of Fame in Downtown Hamilton, along with Tim Horton's Field for the local Hamilton Tiger-Cats team. The Royal Botanical Gardens, African Lion Safari Park, Art Gallery of Hamilton and Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum are also popular landmarks. Students can learn at the McMaster University or Mohawk College. There is an abundance of great activities for the entire family.

Before 2000, an estimated 60percent of Canada's steel was produced by Hamilton's Stelco and Dofasco corporations earning the town the name of "Steel Capital of Canada." The economy is primarily service-oriented in 2014 - health, education and transportation, but also linked to the Golden Horseshoe. Visitors can fly into the John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport.

The Hamilton climate is quite moderate due to the presence of Lake Ontario. In February 2014, the city council declared that Hamilton was a "sanctuary city" helping undocumented immigrants avoid deportation. The city is referred to as "Hammer Town" in some movies, plays and dramatic performances.
