Georgian Bay,

large northeastern extension of Lake Huron, S Ont., Canada, separated from Lake Huron by Manitoulin Island and by the Bruce Peninsula; Lucas Channel is its chief connection with Lake Huron.

Georgian Bay is connected with Lake Ontario by the Severn River and Trent Canal. Christian Island is the largest in the bay. Many of the well-timbered, rock-bound islands of Georgian Bay are summer resorts.
