Scarborough, Ontario, located in the eastern part of the city of Toronto was almagamated with the city in 1998. The region is culturally diverse, with the vast majority of residents having arrived as immigrants in the last forty years. The community was named by Elizabeth Simcoe, wife of John Graves Simcoe, the first lieutenant governor of Upper Canada after Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England. The bluffs along Lake Ontario reminded her of the limestone cliffs in Scarborough England. Many noteworthy Canadians either were born in Scarborough or spent time living there. Mike Myers, John Candy, the musical group The Barenaked Ladies, pop singer Fefe Dobson and the actors Jim Carrey and Eric McCormack were all residents of Scarborough at one time. Scarborough is also the home of the Scarborough Bluffs, one of North America’s most unusual headlands along the shores of Lake Ontario. The bluffs stretch for nine miles along the Lake Ontario shore. The bluffs are formed of alternate layers of clay and of glacial debris, sand and clay, deposited primarily during the Last Ice Age.
