There are three written descriptions  on this map as follows; The Province of Ontario, Toronto and Ottawa.  They have been reproduced below;

The Province of Ontario
From the Ottawa-St. Lawrence Rivers to the Manitoba border, Ontario stretches some 1,200 miles,  and embraces an area of over 412,000 square miles-more than half again as large as Texas. It is Canada's second province in size, and within its vast area are thriv­ing cities and sleepy villages, mighty waterways and quiet lakes disturbed only by the splash of beavers.
Ontario is without peer for the tourist or sportsman. Among so many attractions it is difficult to single out anyone spot more than another, or name any as outstanding for game or fish. Innumerable lakes, rivers, and streams have made the Province unsurpassed for fishing. Hunting, especially in the north, is another sport in which Ontario is continent famous.
Travel is second nature in Ontario where there is one car for each five persons.  For them and the more than ten million tourists who visit Ontario each season, 70,000 miles of highway lead the way to diverse topography, climate, and ways of life.   Excellent roads transverse the southern portion of the Province, and even in the almost virgin north improved highways exist.
One of Ontario's most important traffic arteries is the Queen Elizabeth Way, linking Toronto, Niagara Falls and Fort Erie (Buffalo). This highway takes the driver into the historic and attractive Niagara Peninsula. Points of interest near here include the world's largest hydroelectric plant at Chippewa, the mammoth Welland Ship Canal which joins Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, the incomparable, world renowned Niagara Falls, and the Alexander Graham Bell Homestead in Brantford, scene of the invention of the telephone.
From Trenton to Kingston, Highway 33 forms an interesting bypass for travellers, with a fine, smooth ride along Lake Ontario. Off shore, from Kingston to Prescott, lie the world-famous Thousand Islands, stretching for more than 50 miles along the broad St. Lawrence River. Accessible by highway, the islands are also traversed by leisurely boat cruises. The Thousand Islands bridge is open all the year, day and night.
Scenic Bruce Peninsula, where the bluffs on Georgian Bay are in sharp contrast with the sandy shores of Lake Huron, may be reached from the "Blue Water Highway." Stretching from Wallaceburg to Orillia, this road carries the motorist through a breeze blown land of inescapable charm.  Sarnia, with near-by Point Edward, is one of Ontario's busy Great Lakes ports.  At Wasaga Beach, the motorist may drive on a 100 foot wide bed of pure white sand.  Three provincial highways merge at Orangeville, a picturesque highland district and a famous trout fishing area.  Midland, centre of Huronia, and nearby Penetanguishene are home ports of the "30,000 Island" steamers of Georgian Bay; and a few miles east is Port McNicoll, terminus for the C.P.R. Great Lakes steamships. This section of the bay is one of Canada's best fishing grounds. Near Midland is the famed shrine of the Jesuit Fathers.
To the north lies Parry Sound, on a high rampart overlooking the harbour, the centre of the "30,000 Island" region-renowned resort area. Farther north are the French and Pickerel Rivers and Lake Nipissing, famous for its pickerel, bass, and lake trout, and accessible via Highway 69.
Algonquin Provincial Park comprises nearly 3,000 square miles of the wildest bush and lake country in Ontario, no shooting is allowed here, but the fisherman may find Utopia among its hundreds of lakes and streams. Excellent hotels and camps are to be found in this unspoiled region. Game roams at will so motorists must drive with care on the excellent highway that traverses the park.
A vacationer's paradise is the high altitude 1,000-square-mile Muskoka Lakes district, one of the most famous summer resort areas in the Dominion. Some 14 golf courses, woodland trails, gigantic rocks to climb, swimming, sailing, and dancing draw the vacationer here. An interesting drive is to Port Carling where the canal locks lift boats and cruise steamers from the Muskoka Lake level to the higher waters of Lakes Rosseau and Joseph. 
In the near-by Lake of Bays region, a delightful steamship cruise or a novel one-mile overland ride on the shortest railway in the world awaits the tourist.
To the southeast lie the Kawartha Lakes, popular summer resort area, and farther north are the Halliburton Highlands, game and fish country with over 500 named lakes scattered about.
The Trans-Continental Highway passes through the Temagami Provincial Forest and skirts the lovely Lake Temagami.  In this 4,000,000­acre wonderland the tourist may fish, hunt, swim, camp or canoe.  Ontario had the honour of completing the, last link in the 4,195-mile highway, the Dominion's coast-to-coast automobile road.  The section between Hearst and Geraldton offers unsurpassed views of untouched areas, joins the fabled Temagami forest and the Nipigon country, areas with special appeal for the big game hunter, camper, or vacationist.  In Lake of the Woods, Rainy River, Red Lake and Dryden areas, the angler finds some of Ontario's best fishing waters; and the hunter, deer, bear, and a variety of smaller game. Although moose still inhabit many areas of the North, hunting is not permitted and· sportsmen are limited to use of the camera only at present.
Tourist attractions in Ottawa, the Dominion capital, and Toronto, the Provincial capital, are set forth below.

Toronto
TO THE WORLD, Toronto is synonymous with conventions, churches, music, and sport.  To the Canadian motorist, the name of the Dominion's second city is another word fur vacationland and recreation.
Yacht races, horse shows, skating carnivals hold the spotlight in turn; almost nightly in winter a big-league hockey game is on, and in the summer baseball is popular. Around the city are 32 golf courses, and four race tracks with meets each spring and fall.  Popular among vacationers are Sunnyside Beach Amusement Park, with its board­walk and huge swimming pool, and Toronto Islands, a short ferry trip from the business section, are favoured recreation spots.
Musts for sightseers are Casa Lorna, a towering old-world castle with tunnels and secret stairways; the beautiful Provincial Parliament Buildings; the University of Toronto; and the head office of the Canadian Bank of Commerce, tallest building in the British Commonwealth, from which a fine view is obtained.
Connected with the University is the Royal Ontario Museum.  Other attractions are the Toronto Art Gallery, Riverdale Zoo, Allan Gardens with rare plants, and High Park, a zoo and natural play­ground of more than 400 acres.
For the historical minded: Old Fort York with its original buildings and re­stored ramparts, Old Trinity Church and St. James' Cathedral.
Annually, the city is host to upwards of three hundred conventions. The Canadian National Exhibition, is held in late August and early September.  The Royal Winter Fair, in the fall, has grown to international importance.

Ottawa
MUCH DIGNITY and beauty await the motorist at Ottawa, Canada's capital on the lofty southern bank of the Ottawa River.
Impressive for visitors are the granite and marble Parliament Buildings situated on Parliament Hill, among the finest examples of Gothic architecture in the world. The richly decorated Senate Chamber, House of Commons, and Parliamentary Library are some of the outstanding features.
Possibly the greatest interest is centered in the 300-foot Peace Tower. Here is the Memorial Chamber, the nation's tribute to its 60,000 World War I dead. In this tower also hangs a famous carillon of 53 bells. Concerts are given on these bells twice a week (June-Sept.), Thursdays and Sundays, 9 to 10 p.m. The view from the tower's parapet is one long remembered.
Tourists are interested in the Dominion Observatory, where at dusk each Saturday the public may view the celestial bodies; the 825-acre Central Experimental Farm, scene of the development of many wheat varieties, and the Public Archives.
The Victoria Memorial Museum, housing both the National Art Gallery with one of the most important art collections in Canada, and the National Museum with exhibits ranging from handicrafts to dinosaur fossils, is open to the public every day.
Designated by Queen Victoria in 1858 as Canada's capital, Ottawa is a modern, compact city.  Stately homes may be seen in Rockcliffe, the Dominion's finest municipal park, where Rideau Hall, the residence of the Dominion's Governor-General is located.
