Great Lake - St. Lawrence Lowlands

Meet paradise. Because having a large amount of land near some lakes (With Niagara falls near) is probably the best place to start a business that has to do with wood or fish. Please allow me to show you.


First off, some important landscape information, that you should know. The lowlands have bedrocks formed of sedimentary rocks. The bedrock is from the Paleozoic era.


Cool breeze in the summer as it is close to the lake. Much warmer in the winter as the lake absorbs the heat and releases it in the winter. Overall, the temperate range is great.

Soil & Vegetation:

As we know, the lowlands have acres of trees and different types of forests. But most of them are mixed with different types of trees like: Spruce, fir, cedar and hemlock. While the forest is both coniferous and deciduous. There is also a small forest remaining in the southern region. Also the humus-rich soil is dark brown.

Human Activities:

Some things, you could do if you buy this land: Farming, Transportation, Industry and Wood Industry.

The St. Lawrence lowlands is about 46,000 km2 in total. Which is pretty big. Half of it is covered in trees while the rest of it is flat lands. 5,000 km2 of it is in America, but the rest of the 41,000 km2 is in Canada. And still waiting for you.


Even though the St. Lawrence may seem like an ordinary flat land, it does have its benefits. For example, because of the lake nearby, the St. Lawrence lowlands could serve as an excellent area for a docking pier. This docking pier could serve as a pier for boats that would collect fish. Which in this case, could also become a fish factory, which would gain you loads of money.

This could be your docking pier and this could be you making some money. And when I mean money, I mean thousands of dollars.

Additional Info

The St. Lawrence is very close to Niagara Falls which is another big tourist site. Think about it. If you were to buy this land close to a major attraction site, you could earn lots of money. All you have to do is build something interesting and host it.

Since there is a lake close by, you may be able to open up a marine restaurant which can host and serve fish as food; as well as many different types of fish to eat. Also, why not capture some fish for an aquarium. Good idea, right?

Nearly one out of six Canadians works in the Great Lakes/St. Lawrence Lowland region. All of the people's jobs in this region depend on geography. The electric power, agriculture, and construction areas provide the most jobs. Industries such as oil refineries, steel mills, automobile plants, furniture plants, food processing plants, clothing plants, offices, banks, publishers, etc. can be found here. This region is sometimes called the "manufacturing heart" of Canada.

Within the Great Lakes/St Lawrence Lowland region there are lots of natural resources. It has rich fertile level land for agriculture. It also is the second largest farming area in all of Canada. Some of the crops grown in Western Ontario and Southern Quebec are tobacco, peaches, cherries, grapes , apples, hay, vegetables, such as carrots, corn, onions, beets, peas and beans. St Lawrence lowland has lots of ranching which supply butter cheese and meat for the region. The number one resource is fresh water because it is used for cities, factories, ships to transport items and most of all human and animal survival.
