I've never heard anyone distinguish Eastern Ontario from Southern Ontario.

Really? I’ve always thought Eastern Ontario’s its own thing (though the portion on the highlands may blend in with Central or even Northeastern Ontario).

I tend to think of places like Muskoka, Dorset or Huntsville as definitively leaning toward Northern Ontario in geography. Seeing those prominent Canadian Shield boulders rise from the landscape is quite the sight, especially for a southerner like myself

I chortle at the fact that North Bay is considered 'north'.

NWO, NEO, SWO, CO, EO, GH, NO, SO. These are all acronyms for ways to cut up the province.

Depending on who I talk to, I will use Canada, Ontario, Northern Ontario, Northeastern Ontario, Sudbury, and my little town within the City of Greater Sudbury to describe where I live.

Closer to Toronto than Windsor, if only nominally. 4-lanes of highway from there to Toronto. It even now has a Starbucks!

Culturally, the most 'southern' feeling of the Northern cities. It could be a Kingston analog, but at a smaller scale.

You want Northern Ontario, go to Timmins. That's real Northern Ontario, for better or worse.
