      Located at the Canadian-American border on the western bank of the Niagara River, Niagara Falls in Ontario offers stunning views of the famous waterfalls that give the city its name. As the views of both the American and Horseshoe Falls are considered best from the Canadian side, the area around the Niagara Parkway and tourist promenade is dotted with observation towers, hotels, shops, casinos and restaurants to cater to tourists. The city combines all the amenities and entertainment options of an urban centre with the comforts of small town living, set against a panoramic, picture perfect background. It’s no wonder that Niagara Falls remains a popular destination for migration from both sides of the border and with our Niagara Falls Livability guide, it’s easy to see why.

      The majestic Niagara Falls are the powerhouse driver of the city’s economy, quite literally so. The mighty falls provide hydroelectric power to many areas in Ontario as well as the North Eastern United States, which crates plentiful employment opportunities in hydroelectric energy.

These include the primarily residential areas of Clifton Hill and Fallsview as well as the largely commercial Niagara Square, which offers a range of shopping options, from daily necessities to high-street retail therapy, head to the. For a taste of Niagara Fall’s local arts and culture head to the area around Queen Street, which any Niagara Falls guide will tell you is home to a number of art galleries, theatres and cultural centres. Favourite resident activities and events for family fun include the Winter Festival of Lights and the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory.
