It comprises the whole of the former Town of Niagara and the former Township of Niagara including the district heritage communities of Virgil, St. David's, Queenston, Homer and McNab. ... Strategically located on the 43rd parallel, the Town of Niagara-on- the-Lake lies on the same latitude as Florence and Cannes and is the tourism heart of the Ontario wine region which stretches along the south shore of Lake Ontario from Stoney Creek to Niagara Falls."
