St. Catharines is the largest city in Canada’s Niagara region and the sixth largest urban area in Ontario.

With a population of 133,000 residents, the city is strategically located in the heart of the Niagara Peninsula and offers excellent access to the major markets of both Canada and the United States. Manufacturing has traditionally been the city’s dominant industry and General Motors Canada was the city’s largest employer, a distinction now held by the District School Board of Niagara. Over the past few years, St. Catharines economic strategy has been to promote Downtown St. Catharines as a digital media hub, attracting many digital businesses to the downtown core. St. Catharines lies on one of the main telecommunications backbones between Canada and the United States, and as a result a number of call centers operate in the city. St. Catharines is a city that unites its vibrant future with its rich past boasting over 1,000 acres of parks and trails, including the scenic Welland Canal, encouraging residents to develop a healthy and active lifestyle. The city’s quality of life is enhanced by year-round events, cultural attractions, and a wealth of sporting opportunities for people of all ages.

St. Catharines is home to Brock University, a modern comprehensive university located on the Niagara Escarpment. McMaster University’s Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine opened a satellite campus in St. Catharines in September 2008. The Hamilton, Ontario based university educates 28 first-year medical students in local hospitals within the city. Ridley College, located near the city’s downtown core, is a distinguished co-educational boarding and day school. A campus of Niagara College of Applied Arts and Technology is located near the city’s east end. Niagara College is the only fully licensed institution teaching winery in Canada.
