Geographic Township Improved

A Township is a land subdivision in Ontario.

This information was captured through the Ontario Base Mapping Program, is maintained by the Ministry of Natural Resources and distributed through Land Information Ontario (LIO) Warehouse.

The spatial accuracy for some of the townships was improved through the Ontario Parcel, Township Realignment and Township Improvement projects.

Improvements may include:

  • road allowance widths
  • spatial changes to better represent where the township boundaries are located
  • more consistent concession names

Materials used to improve the location of township lines may include:

  • township Improvement plots
  • survey information i.e. retracements
  • original township plans
  • surveys notes
  • the physical features e.g. fence lines in the corporate editing environment
  • water bodies
  • GPS Ontario Road Network geometry
