Concession Road

In southern Ontario and southern Quebec, one of a set of roads laid out by the colonial government as part of the distribution of land in standard lot sizes. The roads were laid out in squares as nearly as possible equal to 1,000 acres. Many of the concession roads were known as sidelines, and in Ontario many roads are still called "lines".
