Office of the CAO

The CAO can best be described as the City Manager, and is the highest ranked staff position in the Corporation. The office of the CAO is responsible for the overall management of the City of Cornwall's operations, programs, services and assets.

Mrs. Maureen Adams is currently the Chief Administrative Officer for the City of Cornwall.

Mrs. Adams was appointed CAO in April 2016. Prior to that, Mrs. Adams served as the General Manager and Chief Financial Officer for the City, a key position that involves overseeing the annual City Budget process and ensuring the City maintains a strong financial position. 

Each department of the City has a Manager, and these managers all report to the CAO. Her principal role is to work closely with his management group to plan and review all activities, issues and programs that impact municipal operations and the public good. The CAO also ensures that all appropriate matters are brought to City Council for review and approval.
