Northern Ontario English
Northern Ontario English has several distinct qualities from West/Central Canadian English. With a francophone population of nearly 100,000, there are several French and English words that are used interchangeably. For example, Northern Ontario Francophones often use the English 'truck' instead of the French 'camion', e.g. "J'ai achete' un nouveau truck."
Southern Ontarians often refer to a cottage as such, while Northern Ontarians would refer to it as a 'camp'. Similarly, Northern Ontarians often refer to backpacks as pack sacks. Northerns often say "I seen", where the standard English is "I saw" or "I have seen", e.g. "I seen him go to the shop." Other common vernacular includes using the word "jar" in place of [laugh] eg. "I jarred out", and using the phrase "close the lights" as in imperative sentence indicating one should shut the lights off.
