Looking for Ontario topographic data and property line data; willing to purchase the latter. Shapefiles or file geodatabase files would be optimal. In terms of topographic data, I am looking for: basic outline of Ontario, county or municipal outlines, contour data, water (lines, poly, etc), buildings, and so forth.
You can also look at geogratis, which is a Canadian repository for all sorts of data http://geogratis.gc.ca/geogratis/MostPopular?lang=en this link will guide you to data related to topographic data.
Geobase as a good collection of administrative boundaries, such as Municipalities http://www.geobase.ca/geobase/en/data/admin/index.html
Along with the above mentioned sources, Land Information Ontario data is available, but I can't speak for its accuracy - http://www.ontario.ca/environment-and-energy/land-information-ontario. What you probably want is featured on geogratis.
For a nice set of topographic data for Ontario, there is a fun interactive map which allows you to:
- Select various areas and zoom in at a high magnification
- Enable a variety of active layers (such as contour lines, roads, water polygons, conservation areas and so on)
- Download the selected areas into a number of formats (shp, AutoCAD DWG, DXF etc)
You will have to register with their website if you want to download the data.
