. The definition of glaciation is: "the action of covering land with ice" (Canadian Geographic Regions). There was an ice that is called
Laurentide
and it covered the St.Lawrence Lowlands. That type of ice sheet would move which could create valleys in the land. After the ice sheet melted it left a valley which is now called the St.Lawrence Lowlands.

There's also a river that's in the middle of the region and it's called the St.Lawrence river and that is called the Ottawa river. Underneath the region it has Sedimentary rock too.
