The City of Cornwall business community is served by the Chamber of Commerce, Downtown and Le Village BIA, and Team Cornwall. Click on the tabs below to learn more about these organizations.

 Chamber of Commerce

For close to 130 years, the Cornwall & Area Chamber of Commerce has been the voice of the city’s business community. It was in 1890 that a group of prominent businessmen came together to form the business association that today, continues its commitment of economic growth and prosperity.

With more than 500 members, the Chamber serves its community in many ways. It is an advocate on issues of concern. It is a leader in matters of economic renewal. It is dedicated, like those from its distant past, to making the community a better place to work and live.

Topical issues can be found in the E-news section of its web site and some of Cornwall's leading firms and individuals can be found on the site directory.

The Chamber spearheads a number of programs and other initiatives including consumer focused home shows, professional development seminars, and its distinguished Business Excellence Awards banquet.

Notably, it was the Chamber that established Heart of the City, an outstanding community improvement program that over the past number of years, has seen millions of dollars invested in revitalization projects.

 Downtown and Le Village BIA

Downtown Cornwall

Cornwall’s revitalized downtown offers a growing mix of restaurants and retail stores, beautiful waterfront parks, museums and tree-lined neighbourhoods.

Anchored by the landmark intersection of Pitt and Second, the Downtown is the historical heart of the region, tracing its roots back to 1784. Heritage homes, churches and buildings provide a clue as to what the city looked like a century ago.

The Downtown is the go-to dining and shopping district for both locals and visitors alike. Have lunch on an outdoor patio and browse eclectic shops owned by the merchants who have sourced unique one-of-a-kind goods to fill their shelves. Drop by Cornwall Square, an indoor shopping mall featuring over 70 stores and stay for dinner at one of the many fine restaurants.

Downtown is where you will find City Hall, the Cornwall Public Library and the Counties Administration Building. It is also the location of the Historic SDG Jail and Cornwall Community Museum as well as the Civic Complex, home of the Cornwall Colts and Cornwall Nationals hockey teams. Take a dip in the Aquatic Centre or try your luck throwing stones at the Cornwall Curling Club.

These attractions and more are just a short walk away from the sprawling Lamoureux Park which offers scenic views of the St. Lawrence River and Cornwall Island. In the park, you will also find play structures, a splash pad and outdoor gym, in addition to well-maintained walking paths along the riverside.

Le Village

Le Village is a “main street” commercial district in the east end of Cornwall that runs along Montreal Road. It offers a diverse mix of professional offices, restaurants, retail stores and residential buildings.

Le Village has strong connections to Cornwall’s textile mills past and Francophone heritage. The early nucleus of the Francophone community was Nativity Roman Catholic Church on Montreal Road which was built during 1887-92 to serve the many French Canadians.

The area is in the midst of revitalization as new businesses set up shop. It is also an area with immediate access to the St. Lawrence River, attracting new residents as heritage textile mills are converted into condos.

St. Lawrence College is located at the east end of Le Village. With surging enrollment, the College is a vibrant place of learning and community activities. The campus is also home to the St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences as well as Aultsville Theatre – a 700-seat theatre that attracts thousands of people to the area to attend dozens of shows throughout the year.

As you move further east along the Waterfront Trail you will find the NAV Centre, a sprawling convention centre overlooking the St. Lawrence River. The NAV Centre includes a great restaurant and pub, in addition to a fitness centre, indoor pool and spa to compliment over 500 guest rooms.
