Lakes in Ontario (in reply to: How many lakes are in Ontario?)
The answer to this question depends on your definition of a lake (e.g. mimimum size). There are 3,899 lakes in Ontario greater than 3 square KM (32,000 in Canada). There are over 3 million lakes in Canada of any size.

HOW MANY LAKES IN ONTARIO (in reply to: How many lakes are in Ontario?)
A FEW YEARS AGO, A SURVEY WAS TAKEN TO ANSWER THAT VERY QUESTION. THE RESULT WAS 250,000 + LAKES IN ONTARIO. NO MINIMAL SIZE WAS REVEALED, BUT MY UNCLE IN ORRVILLE NOTED THAT ONLY ONE OF THE THREE LAKES THAT SURROUND HIS LODGE WAS LISTED! YOI AND DOUBLE YOI!
INCIDENTALLY, LAKE MICHIGAN IS THE ONLY GREAT LAKE THAT IS NOT SHARED WITH CANADA.

Number of Lakes in Ontario (in reply to: How many lakes are in Ontario?)
I also think that we should first consider a definitions of :
- lake
- pond
- river

and then start counting

How many lakes. (in reply to: How many lakes are in Ontario?)
Your are right about the qualifications for size of Lakes, however, on good authority, the numbers are in the 500,000 range, but who cares....what really counts is the volume of fresh water, and healthy fresh water. Ontario I believe can truly be described as the blue province in terms of the amount of fresh water we access through the great lakes right up to James and Hudson Bay, and all the water sources in between. We have to keep our Lakes clean for the best fishing. http://www.400eleven.com/pr-ontario-bule-province.html

Lakes in Ontario (in reply to: How many lakes are in Ontario?)
Toronto Star Sunday Sept 25th in their normal trivial questions contest has Ontario with 250,000. Not ponds, not puddles (like in Iowa) but lakes. Manitoba has 100,000 and it was on their license plates back in the early 70´s and Minnesota whined and cried about that, since their plates show 10,000 lakes Poor Minnesota!!
Ontario is 354,342 sq. miles, and Minnesota 79,610 sq miles
or 22.5% of Ontario, so Minnesota has more than their share by about 7,700.
