#CoolCompanies Choose Cornwall: Love Small Town Vibes, Big City Benefits

It doesn’t take much convincing that the City of Cornwall is full of opportunities. As one of the oldest cities in eastern Ontario, a modern buzz of activity surrounds its historical features.  Choose Cornwall uses many avenues to get that message out. As the economic development arm of the City of Cornwall, you’ll see them in action, working with marketers, developers, business owners and tourism operators to bring attention to and build the population of Cornwall.

Choose Cornwall Makes This Cool Location Ready To Be Found

Cornwall is a tourism and business hub along the St. Lawrence River. Cornwall is a cozy city of almost 50,000 residents that sits at the convergence of the Ontario, Quebec and New York State borders. Cornwall shares its southern border with the Mohawk Nation of Akwesasne.

City programs support the opportunities available in Cornwall. There’s help available so new Canadians, young families and anyone wanting to move to the city can get established, find a home and a job and build connections in the region. Accessible public transit, childcare, and education choices such as St. Lawrence College make Cornwall an even better location to call home. Choose Cornwall operates these helpful online services: CornwallTourism.com, BusinessEnterpriseCentre.ca and ImmigrationCornwall.com.

Because of its location, on Highway 401 between Toronto and Montreal and just an hour’s drive to Ottawa, residents have ample opportunities for easy travel. Companies thrive here with the added convenience of land and sea shipping options. Even better, Cornwall boasts one of Canada’s largest and most advanced logistics warehouse operations.
