City of Hamilton, ON
The City of Hamilton (formerly the Regional Municipality of Hamilton-Wentworth and its lower-tier municipalities) is located in southwestern Ontario, Canada, along the western shore of Lake Ontario. The city of over 500,000 inhabitants consists of a highly industrialized core that was traditionally based on the steel industry. However, as manufacturing companies downsized, service and institutional sectors grew to become a major part of the local economy. The City of Hamilton has made sustainable, active transport one of its priorities, and is currently in the process of creating an integrated bike sharing program.
