Burlington (Canada 2006 Census population 164,415, projected to be 175,800 in 2011.) is a city located in the Regional Municipality of Halton at the western end of Lake Ontario. The federal 2006 Census denoted it as a part of the Hamilton Census Metropolitan Area. Provincially, it is a municipality of the Greater Toronto Area. Physically, Burlington lies between the north shore of Lake Ontario and the Niagara Escarpment. Economically, it is in the centre of the Golden Horseshoe, an urban/suburban/industrial region ringing the shore of Lake Ontario from Oshawa to Niagara Falls.

Some of the city's attractions include Canada's Largest Ribfest, Sound of Music Festival, Burlington Art Centre, and Spencer Smith Park, all located near the city's municipal offices in the downtown core. Additionally, the city attracts hikers, birders and nature lovers due to the Royal Botanical Gardens located on the border with Hamilton, as well as its proximity to a part of the Niagara Escarpment in the north end of the city that includes the Iroquoian section of the Bruce Trail.
