Map of Canada with Ontario highlighted
Ontario is a province of Canada, located in east-central Canada. It is Canada’s second largest in total area. It is home to the nation’s capital, Ottawa.
Ontario is bordered by Manitoba on its west, Hudson Bay on its north, Quebec on its east, and by three states of the United States to its south (from west to east): Minnesota, Michigan, and New York. Ohio and Pennsylvania are across Lake Erie.
The province is named after Lake Ontario, which is thought to have been derived from Ontarí:io, a Huron (Wyandot) word meaning “great lake”, or possibly skanadario which means “beautiful water” in the Iroquoian languages. Ontario contains about 250,000 freshwater lakes.

The 400-series highways are a network of controlled-access highways throughout the southern portion of the Canadian province of Ontario. They make up the primary vehicular network in the south of the province, and they connect to numerous border crossings with the U.S. Other provincial highways and regional roads inter-connect the remainder of the province.
Via Rail operates the inter-regional passenger train service on the Quebec City – Windsor Corridor, along with The Canadian, a transcontinental rail service from Toronto to Vancouver, and the Sudbury – White River train. Additionally, Amtrak rail connects Ontario with key New York cities including Buffalo, Albany, and New York City. Ontario Northland provides rail service to destinations as far north as Moosonee near James Bay, connecting them with the south.
UNESCO first declared 8 September as International Literacy Day in 1966, following a recommendation made by the World Congress of Ministers of Education on “the Eradication of Illiteracy”, held in Teheran in September 1965.
Each year INTERNATIONAL LITERACY DAY is celebrated with the aim to sensitize and mobilize international public opinion and to elicit their interest and active support for literacy activities. On this day, the Director-General of UNESCO addresses a message to the world, appealing to individuals, organizations and states to demonstrate their support and solidarity for literacy and to promote non-formal education for all, particularly for those who have been excluded from the school system.
The International Day of Peace, sometimes unofficially known as World Peace Day, is observed annually on 21 September. It is dedicated to world peace, and specifically the absence of war and violence, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone for humanitarian aid access. The day was first celebrated in 1982, and is kept by many nations, political groups, military groups, and peoples. In 2013, for the first time, the Day was dedicated by the Secretary-General of the United Nations to peace education, the key preventive means to reduce war sustainably.
