There are two locations in Canada that go by the name of Windsor. One of these is located in Southwestern Ontario while the other is in the province of Nova Scotia. Windsor, Ontario is an automobile manufacturing center located across the United States border from the city of Detroit. Historically, the big three car manufacturing companies of Chrysler, Ford, and GM were stationed here until economic difficulties forced the closures of some of the plants in the 2000s.

Windsor, Nova Scotia on the other hand is a much smaller scale place. It is classified as a town and not a city. The origins or Windsor, Nova Scotia are older than that of Windsor, Ontario. Founded in 1685 (Windsor, Ontario was founded in 1749) and first settled by the Acadians, it was first used for agricultural purposes. During both Queen's Anne War and the French and Indian War it was set up as a fortification by British forces. By 1878, it was incorporated as a town and was a noted major shipping point on the Bay of Fundy (both by rail and ship). Today, Windsor claims to be the "birthplace of hockey" and holds the "oldest" agricultural fair in North America. It has relied on both the agricultural and mining industries as it main source of economy over the years.

The French never deemed the fort to be important and it was never rebuilt. Today, remnants of the stone fort can be seen. Kingston was once a capital city, being named the first capital of the Province of Canada in 1841. Kingston has been used to house various penitentiaries and has the largest concentration of federal penitentiaries in Canada. In 1990, the Kingston Penitentiary was declared a National Historic Site in Canada after operating for well over 100 years. It was officially closed in 2013.

In 1970, the two communities of Fort William and Port Arthur were amalgamated to form the city of Thunder Bay. At one time, Thunder Bay had one of the busiest ports in Canada as it was a major access point to ship grains across the Great Lakes. In 1960, the Trans-Canada Highway was completed through to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario and the need for shipping across Lake Superior has declined due to the trucking industry. For many years, a key industry in the city included the shipping of grain products across Canada resulting in many grain elevators being built near the harbour.
Other large industries in the city have included forestry and forest products as well as transportation services such as the manufacturing of mass transit vehicles, one major company being Bombardier Transportation. Thunder Bay has the highest concentration of Finnish origin per capita in Canada and has the second largest Finnish population (only Toronto has more) in Canada. Major tourist attractions include Fort William Historical Park and The Heart of the Harbour (a marina district that allows for a panoramic view of Sleeping Giant, a unique geographical formation).

After a period of growth and rebuilding, London began to thrive again. Structures such as the Labatt and Carling Brewing Companies were established, the Provincial Agricultural Fair of Western Canada started to be held, and the London Armory were all built by 1905. During the two World Wars, London became an administrative military center for the Western region. By the 1960s, the city of London began to annex many surrounding communities doubling itself in size and by 1993, began to annex more areas making it one of the largest cities in the province.
