The Niagara Region


Climate

The Niagara Region’s climate is humid continental and can be considered a unique micro-climate because of the moderating influence of Lake Ontario and Lake Erie and the sheltering effect of the Niagara Escarpment to the south. As a result, the area can record a large number of frost-free days in the winter, although it sometimes receives lake-effect snow. The summer season is predominantly warm, sometimes hot, with an average high temperature of 27 degrees Celsius in July, and humidity is often high. Summer thunderstorms are commonplace but less prevalent than further west in Southern Ontario due to surrounding lakes.


About The Niagara Region

The Niagara Region is located in southern Ontario, between Lake Ontario and Lake Erie and borders along the American boundary for the State of New York.

There are 12 municipalities included in this area. www.regional.niagara.on.ca. The Atalick Team services all of these areas!

Famous for its many natural features, the Niagara Region has a multitude of landmarks and things to do. Some of which include Niagara Falls, one of the 7 wonders of the world, Niagara-on-the-Lake which offers Shaw Festival Theatre, quaint shops and B&Bs, The Niagara Winery Route which winds from Grimsby right through to Niagara-on-the-Lake, two Casinos, hiking along the Niagara Escarpment, parks, beaches, and tons of history!

The St. Catharines area in particular hosts Brock University with a student population of over 18,000, as well as Niagara College with an 8,000 student count. This has brought a large influx of students to our area as well as a demand for professors and administrative staff. The 800 million dollar super hospital is currently under construction in the west end of St. Catharines, which will open thousands of jobs in the near future. Brock is currently adding a Performing Arts School to its agenda, which will be found in the downtown core, and the city has also scheduled the construction of a Performing Arts Theatre on St. Paul Street by 2012.

The Niagara Region is a beautiful place to start a family or retire as a family. Our housing market offers affordable living for both the young and old at a fraction of the cost of other areas in Ontario. Niagara has a mature condominium resale market, and a large assortment of single family homes, both new and resale. Come to Niagara, for an upscale standard of living and meet the Atalick Team!
