WELCOME TO NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE Welcome to historic Niagara-on-the-Lake, a town of many firsts. In 1792, LieutenantGovernor Sir John Graves Simcoe opened the first provincial parliament, making our community the first capital of Upper Canada. In the years to follow, we became home to the first newspaper published in Ontario, the Gazette; the first Law Society of Upper Canada; and the first circulating library. Our history is very important to us and we greatly value its significance, as do the millions of people who visit our community each year. We are delighted you are one of them. In addition to our heritage, Niagara-onthe-Lake offers year-round attractions for those seeking a special getaway. From our quaint shops and art galleries in Old Town, to our world-class wineries, restaurants and visitor accommodations, there is something for everyone. During the winter months, we encourage you to take part in some of our local events, including the Icewine Festival; Shop,

Sip, Sample and Savour; and Fabulicious. Also be sure to visit the Outlet Collection at Niagara, Canada’s largest outdoor shopping centre, featuring over 100 high-end retailers and a food pavilion. And join us in the spring and summer months for even more attractions, including the internationally-acclaimed Shaw Festival Theatre. We take pride in our many visitor attractions, historical sites, natural trails, and heritage architecture, and hope you will experience the best we have to offer. Enjoy your stay, and we look forward to welcoming you again sometime. Best wishes,

Pat Darte Lord Mayor
