The Canadian County Atlas Digital Project: includes maps that have been digitized at McGill University and cover all of Ontario in 1880. There are a number of maps for each country, and visitors can use the drop-down menus to look for items of particular interest.

The menus include Choose a County, Choose a Township, and Choose a Town. By clicking on each map, visitors will be able to look at different township maps that will reveal property boundaries, improvements, and all types of other details.

This searchable database includes property owner’s names which appear on the township maps in the county atlases. Historians and geographers will find much to admire here and it’s easy to see how this website could be used to illustrate historical trends in terms of land development.
