A Guide to Search Results for "Ontario"
The search term "Ontario" is an ambiguous geographic reference to various localities. Specifically, the province of Ontario, Canada; the incorporated city of Ontario, located in the county of San Bernardino, California, and home of the Ontario International Airport; the city of Ontario in Wayne County, New York; the county of Ontario in the state of New York; the village of Ontario in the state of Ohio; the city of Ontario in the state of Oregon; and the village of Ontario in the State of Wisconsin. Adding to the ambiguity between these distinct geographic locations is the fact that both Ontario, Canada and Ontario, California -- the two most prominent Ontario localities -- are often abbreviated Ontario, CA. The name Ontario comes from the Iriqouian word for "beautiful lake," and originally referred to Lake Ontario, which forms a natural boundary between the United States and Canada. The city of Ontario, California was named after the Canadian province in 1882 by Canadian settlers who became the city's founders.
