Home Campus Directory | A-Z Index


This academic year the campus is focusing on Canada, a country that shares the continent of North America with the US, Mexico, and the countries that comprise Central America. Canada is the second largest country in the world--the largest is Russia and the U.S. is third (CIA World Factbook country comparisons by area).

Several Canadian cities are within one day's drive of Pittsburgh. To the northeast in Ontario is Niagara Falls (269 miles), Hamilton (283 miles) and Toronto (317 miles). To the northwest in Ontario is Windsor (289 miles). Trivia fans will know Windsor, Ontario as the answer to the question: "Which Canadian city is south of the United States?"

More details about Canada are on the Canada facts page.
