Where in Ontario are you? (Though, I'm going to guess you're mostly climbing on the Niagara escarpment and are located somewhere not-too-far from Toronto.) The Canadian Shield is granite!

Bon Echo will give you multi-pitch trad routes on granite, and you don't even have to leave the province! (Guide book available in PDF at: http://www.climbers.org/guide-to-rock-climbs-bon-echo-fifth-edition )

Almost all the local climbing around Ottawa is granite -- Calabogie, Mont Rigaud, Gatineau Park, etc.

The Adirondacks in (upstate) New York have lots of gorgeous granite.

Moving to the Quebec side -- Montagne d'Argent, Val David, the Weir and others are all granite -- route lengths varying but you'll find stuff in the 100+ meter range.
