Cornwall is one of the largest cities in Eastern Ontario. It is also one of the oldest settlements in Canada, yet today boasts a modern economy led by forward-thinking companies. The City's location on the St. Lawrence River and its numerous parks and recreational facilities make the City an excellent place to raise a family.

The City of Cornwall has a unique geographic location at the convergence of the Ontario, Quebec and New York State borders. It shares its southern border with the Mohawk Nation of Akwesasne, and Cornwall is one of 14 Ontario border crossings between Canada and the United States.

Situated along the St. Lawrence River and Highway 401, Cornwall is well serviced by road and railway transportation and is only an hour's drive from Montreal and Ottawa.

Cornwall continues to evolve as revitalization projects, environmental initiatives and new business activities combine to improve local economy.
