Set in the heart of Southwestern Ontario, London is the region's economic, entertainment and cultural hub. With a population of more than 366,000, London is Canada's 11th largest city and an ideal environment to work, play and live. Big enough for the ‘big city' experience, but still far more affordable in comparison with many other Canadian cities, London boasts an extensive educational and health care community, while providing the safe and clean atmosphere of a small community. Pick a time of year and you'll discover London is always busy – be it skiing on Boler Mountain, skating on local outdoor ice rinks or taking a quick trip to nearby beaches including Grand Bend and Port Stanley.
