The Dawn Hub's strategic location in southwestern Ontario provides direct access to most of North America's major supply basins, including Utica and Marcellus. With multiple routes from western Canada, mid-continent, the Rockies, and the Gulf of Mexico all supplying Dawn, as well as the ability to reach markets in eastern Canadian and the U.S. Northeast, the Dawn Hub provides a deep and liquid market.
