Where is Northeastern Ontario?

Northeastern Ontario is large, diverse and dynamic region. It spans from Manitoulin Island in Lake Huron, across the Greater Sudbury Area and North Bay on Lake Nipissing and reaches all the way north to James Bay shoreline. Its northernmost communities include Attawapiskat, Fort Albany and Moosonee. To the east, Northeastern Ontario lies along the Quebec border, to the west, it includes the communities of Chapleau, Foloyet and Kapuskasing. The Trans Canada Highway cuts across the southern portion of Northeastern Ontario connecting Sudbury and North Bay, while Highway 11 is the main thoroughfare travelling north through the region. Regularly scheduled domestic flights operate out of the Greater Sudbury Airport (YSB), Jack Garland Airport (YYB) in North Bay and Timmins Victor M. Power Airport (YTS).
