Golden Horseshoe ontario

Here's a map of the Golden Horseshoe and what regions can now reopen in Ontario

Parts of Ontario outside of the Golden Horseshoe are officially moving into Stage 2 of reopening with more and more businesses allowed to resume service.

Everything inside of the Golden Horseshoe including Toronto and the GTA will still need to wait.

The Ontario government has outlined that many parts of the province outside of the Golden Horseshoe will be able to enter Stage 2 as part of its regional approach to safely reopening the province's economy.
