About London

London is located in the heart of southwestern Ontario between two of the Great Lakes of North America, Huron and Erie. It is the eleventh-largest city in Canada with a population of approximately 384,000 people and is an ideal environment to live, work, and play. The overall flat nature of the area was caused by the retreat of glaciers during the last ice age, which also resulted in the formation of areas of marshland, kettle lakes, and highly productive agricultural farmland.

Archeological evidence and oral history show that London has a long history of settlement dating back over 10,000 years. The Indigenous peoples who have called the region home for millennia include the Anishnaabeg, Haudenosaunee, and Lenni-Lenape Nations. European settlement of the area began in 1793, but the city was not formed until 1855. London experienced rapid growth after World War II and has continued to evolve and progress ever since.
