Seemingly good surf spots on lake Ontario - Southwick Beach State Park See surfspot at Google Maps, Ellisburg, NY, United States.
Predominant SW winds build large waves along sandy beach.
Other surfspots in the area from North to South (monitored as "Selkirk Shores"):
Brennan Beach RV Resort See surfspot at Google Maps - beach and sandbar breaks on NW, W, strong SW winds.
Selkirk Shores State Park See surfspot at Google Maps Pulaski, NY (Do not confuse with Selkirk Provincial Park on lake Erie). Small sand beach, rocky shoreline

Pickering, ON See surfspot at Google Maps on lake Ontario's central part of Canadian shore has at least 2 surf spots:

Rouge Park beach See surfspot at Google Maps near river outlet, with sandbar and shore break, works on SW, SE winds.
Frenchman's Bay See surfspot at Google Maps and Beachfront Park See surfspot at Google Maps works on strong SE, E winds.

Hamilton, ON See surfspot at Google Maps has a well-established surf spot on the North side of Burlington/Hamilton lifting bridge (aka The Bridge)See surfspot at Google Maps works on E, NE winds. Unfortunately the forecast needs to be cut in half for North winds. There are good amenities (change room, shower) on Burlington side (Burlington Beachway Park)See surfspot at Google Maps side, the sandbar on Burlington side is good for bodyboarding. See videos on how surfing at Hamilton, ON can look like in May, August, September.

Fifty Point with Kelson BeachSee surfspot at Google Maps is south of Hamilton (towards Grimsby). The sandbar works well on North, East, North East winds, conditions match nicely with Grimsby Buoy readings. If you go through conservation area gates, you'll have to pay 10 CAD. Gate hours are 7 a.m. to sunset.

I've read about numerous sandbars and shore breaks on Van Wagners beachSee surfspot at Google Maps working on E, NE had not surf there being happy with the sandy beach at the Bridge.

Web cam at Fifty Point Yacht Club is handy to eyeball current surf conditions and approximate it to all mentioned beaches. On West and South winds all spots around Hamilton are flat, so and if you see a non-zero forecast - you may ignore it.

Toronto, ON See surfspot at Google Maps has several surf spots working at different wind directions. Watch Surf Ontario members video on surfing Toronto and vicinity in the Winter.

The Beaches See surfspot at Google Maps may work well at E-SE and produce nice straight (but small (divide the forecast by 2) waves at strong SSW storms. I've seen some folks surfing near rocky part See surfspot at Google Maps, but I would not dare.

The Bluffs "doublespot" can work on both, SE and SW depending what side of the Bluffers Park you take. The East Bluffers park beach See surfspot at Google Maps shines on E-SE winds. For SW, it also works, but twice less than  the Cove (the Cliffs side) See surfspot at Google Maps.

The other possible spot on SW wind is Cherry St. beach See surfspot at Google Maps as Outer Harbour may have pumping waves on strong SW.

All spots may be extremely crowded at Summer time. The Beaches and the Cherry St. are official windsurfing / kite surfing spots - take that into account.

In short:

S Beaches, Bluffers
E, SSE Beaches, Bluffers
SSW Beaches (forecast/2), Bluffers (should be bigger than at the Beaches), Cherry (?)
