Industry and Liberality
St. Catharines, known throughout Ontario as the —Garden City—, is a community located to the north of Niagara Falls. Mirroring Toronto on the shore of Lake Ontario, St. Catharine's draws much of its character from its visual appeal: lush parkland, colourful floral gardens, historic Victorian buildings and sparkling waters.
St. Catharines is situated in an area for commerce and trade. Manufacturing is the city's dominant industry, as noted by the heraldic motto, "Industry and Liberality".
The Art of Peace Festival seeks to increase community engagement in art as a tool for reflecting on peace issues.
The City of St. Catharines strives to recognize and meet the diverse needs of its citizens, making the Garden City a great place to live for young and old, families and individuals alike.
