Fort York is a historic site of military fortifications and related buildings to the west of downtown Toronto (Ontario, Canada). The fort was built by the British Army and Canadian militia in the late 17th Century and early 18th Century, built to defend the settlement York and the new capital of Upper Canada region to protect against the threat of military attack, especially from the newly independent United States. In 1793, Lieutenant Governor John Graves Simcoe approved a garrison on the present site of Fort York, just west of the mouth of Garrison Creek on the northeastern shore of Lake Ontario. Simcoe realized that ideal because of its natural harbor and the long distance to the United States, this place was for the establishment of a settlement and defense. At the time of construction of Fort York was monitored from there as the only location the western entrance of the bay. Simcoe had also decided to make York the capital of Upper Canada Region. The first Government House and Parliament were built and a half miles east of the fort near the present-day Parliament Street.
