Keep in mind that some communities are unincorporated, while other communities are agglomerated into lerger territorial units such as townships. In fact, I may just make another quiz one day about all the population centres (urban populations comprising at least 1000 people), but don't expect it for a while. Next, this series will reach the Atlantic provinces, which have killed off most of my other Canadian provincial series. Will this series meet the same, ghastly fate? Stay tuned!

ALSO, where is fort Severn first nation

Fort Severn is a First Nations Band and therefore doesn't fit in with the typical 'City, Town, Village, etc' structure. First Nations Reserves, also known as Indian Reserves, have a degree of autonomy. If I had used population centres, then some of these communities such as Attawapiskat would have been included, while others such as Fort Severn would be too small (population centres are urban populations with at least 1000 people).

Funny how Saskatchewan has more cities than Ontario.

Level 68

Saskatchewan has almost as many towns as Ontario has cities, towns and villages combined. This is in part due to the nature of settlements in Saskatchewan--you will find all sorts of tiny communities spread across the open plains, often in the middle of nowhere.

Ontario can be confusing -- some municipalities are actually towns and some towns are actually counties or municipalities. For example Leamington and Port Hope are towns but considered lower tiered municipalities (and not on this list). Chatham-Kent is a single tiered municipality but if you include Prince Edward, Norfolk, Haldimand or Brant as cities or towns you need to include Chatham Kent as a city since its governed the same (Chatham-Kent is the city of Chatham and the county of Kent as one municipality; not much different than the merged city of Hamilton and county of Wentworth, other than Hamilton doesn't hyphenate with its former county) . The Town of Clarington is not a town but a lower tier municipality next to Oshawa but includes several settlements large enough to be on the list eg Bowmanville. Municipal governance is at the mercy of the province which for some strange reason has several different types of structures. A good quiz too bad the province ruined it.

Yes it is a nightmare, but I am only going off of official titles. When I was making this series, every province had to come along with some kind of quirk and make my life difficult! I would love to make another quiz with more detail that can avoid subjective government definitions, although it will take a lot of original research so it may be a bit until that comes out.

Thank you for your reply :)

No problem. Honestly, I'm surprised one spelled Ingersoll correctly. Most only spell it with one 'L'.

(Ingersoll's my hometown, BTW). ;)

so sad my home town (sturgeon falls) is not on it but i understand since the official classification is a municipalities(west nipissing) . I notice that sadly a lot of little town and villages in the north got that fate because of that. but I'm so impress with what you allready done I think that's the most detail quiz of ontario i ever saw! Kuddo on you for your hard work !

It's kind of sad, even some bigger centres got the axe (Chatham being the most obvious example I can think of). Thanks for playing, and I'm glad you enjoyed the quiz!
