The Great Lakes St. Lawrence Lowland, the smallest geographical
region in Canada, involves the triangle shape assembled by Lake Ontario,
Lake Erie and Lake Huron. It is located on the southern parts of Ontario and Quebec.
The St. Lawrence River begins to rise into the Canadian Shield. It was formed when faulting created a rift valley (a valley created when the part of land between the cracks in the Earth's crust drops down) Then later, around the end of the Ice Age, the faults lead to the sinking of the area around the St. Lawrence, which was then flooded by part of the Atlantic Ocean. During the flooding, the Atlantic Ocean laid down the sediments that provided this area with it's fertile soils.
