Windsor is a city in Southwestern Ontario, Canada, located on the south bank of the Detroit River directly across from Detroit, Michigan. Windsor is the southernmost city in Canada, and is the third most populous city in the province of Ontario, after Toronto and Ottawa.

Windsor is situated in a unique geographical location, being the only major Canadian city located south of the 42nd parallel. This location has enabled the city to become the gateway between Canada and the United States. The city is connected to Detroit by the Ambassador Bridge and the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel.

Windsor has a rich history, with evidence of human habitation dating back to the early 1600s. The area was first settled by the French in 1749, who named it LaSalle. The area was later taken over by the British in 1760, and was renamed Windsor in honour of the town of Windsor, England.

Throughout its history, Windsor has been an important industrial and transportation hub. During the 1800s, the city was a major hub for the Great Lakes shipping industry. In the early 20th century, Windsor became a major automotive manufacturing centre, with the Ford Motor Company and Chrysler Corporation setting up factories in the area.

Today, Windsor is a vibrant and diverse city with a population of over 200,000. The city is home to a number of cultural attractions, including the Windsor Symphony Orchestra and the Art Gallery of Windsor. The city also hosts a number of major events, such as the Windsor-Detroit International Freedom Festival and the Windsor International Film Festival.
