identifying a vine

I live in northern ontario and have come across a vine that is similar in leaf shape to a virginia creeper but is larger. It seems to get small bunches of seeds on it that look like they may form into grapes, but they don't and the leaves have a shine to them like a grape and is fast growing. Any suggestions on what this vine may be ? I have been researching the net with no luck. Thanks

RE: identifying a vine

Do a search for Porcelain Berry Vine, Ampelopsis brevipendiculata - see if that's what you have. Barring that, do a google search for vines with grape-like leaves, choose images, and see if you can find it. It's difficult to id a plant without a picture.
