Abstract: Climate change has been the topic of a large number of researches for the past few decades. To be able to take any further step in the preparation of new strategies to mitigate the undesired consequences of the ongoing changes related to the climate change in Ontario, it is essential to perform a comprehensive study that analyzes the historical trends in hydrology and climatology of Ontario for the past few decades. In this research, the trends of annual and monthly mean streamflow, baseflow, and surface runoff values, as well as the trends of annual and monthly mean precipitation, rainfall, snowfall, maximum and minimum temperature values for the past few decades have been investigated using Man-Kendall trend test and in a comprehensive analysis all of the results have been put together to make a better understanding of Ontario’s climatic and hydrologic trends for the past few decades.
