City of Ontario Celebrates Its 125th Anniversary

Founded as a model colony in 1882 by George and William Chaffey, brothers from Brockville, Ontario, Canada, the City of Ontario was created as a model colony.  As the Chaffey brothers purchased and developed the land, their continuous efforts to lure new settlers worked and the colony quickly grew.  Today, the City of Ontario continues its commitment to creating opportunity and building value in the community.
