Hamilton’s location at the western end of Ontario’s Golden Horseshoe provides businesses with easy access to a network of highways, international rail lines, and the Port of Hamilton. Local air connections to international destinations are close by with John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport, Lester B. Pearson International Airport in Toronto and Buffalo Niagara International Airport just across the border in New York State. The Queen Elizabeth Way provides ready access to both the Greater Toronto Area, a regional market of over six million people, and Highway 401. Highway 401 is the Canadian link to the NAFTA super highway connecting Ontario with the I-75 serving Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida and the I-90 connections to the eastern seaboard. With the U. S. border only an hour’s drive away, Hamilton has site selections and industrial real estate locations that are within half a day’s drive of key major urban markets in the United States.
