Mid-Ontario Truck Centre’s branches are conveniently located with Maple just over 30 minutes outside of Toronto and Barrie a little further at around an hour and half North of Toronto, the most populated city in Canada.  Ontario borders the USA to the south and is the most populated area in Canada.

The Province boasts the leading manufacturing province, accounting for just over half of national manufacturing shipments made in the country.
