The top-left corner of Ontario is a mix of small remote communities and a few larger forestry-centred towns. It tends to follow the winning party in Ottawa. It was a surprise when the Conservatives won it in 2019 with 34% of the vote. Both the Liberals and the NDP were close behind, and if one of them can become the alternative to the Conservatives they will take it. High on the target list of both the NDP and Liberals.
