Areasquare miles 1, square km. Land Relief Ontario is composed of two regions of widely different character, Northern and Southern Ontario. Northern Ontario, as usually defined, lies north of a line drawn from the confluence of the Mattawa and Ottawa rivers at the Quebec border, east of Lake Nipissing southwest to the mouth of the French River, on Georgian Bay.
Most of the region, which covers approximatelysquare milessquare kmis a part of the ancient Canadian Shieldcharacteristically marked with a profusion of lakes and rivers, muskeg bogsand densely forested rocky and rugged terrain. A low plateau, it is generally no more than 1, feet metres above sea levelalthough it contains the highest point in the province, Ishpatina Ridge, which rises to 2, feet metres near Lake Temagami.
Covering only about 15 percent of the area of the province, Southern Ontario contains land of gentle relief.
Its lowest area—on the Ottawa River —is only feet 45 metres above sea level, and its highest point—in the Blue Mountains south of Georgian Bay—is just over 1, feet metres in elevation.
