Project banner[edit]


  • All settlements in Ontario should use {{Infobox Settlement}}. This infobox provides a consistent look between the various types settlements in Ontario like Toronto and Windsor and to settlements in the other parts of Canada like Saskatoon, Montreal, St. John's, and Edmonton. The default "settlement_type" is city, but it can be changed to reflect any type of settlement, like counties, towns, villages, etc. {{Infobox Settlement}} also has a super imposable dot map feature that allows a map to be used with any settlement in Ontario.


Ontario-related articles may have one or more of the following stubs applied to them, as needed, in addition to, or in lieu of, Canada-specific stubs:
