The Cornwall Advantage

  • The City of Cornwall is strategically situated between major Canadian urban centres and can be considered a satellite community for both Ottawa and Montreal, which have combined regional populations of over 5 million.
  • Cornwall's location provides quick access to provincial Highway 401, as well as the Canadian National Rail network, which is ideal for wide range of supply chains. Cornwall also has direct access to an international border crossing into the United States, allowing for efficient goods movement.
  • The City's manufacturing sector remains an important economic contributor, finding markets through innovation, efficiency, and production quality. Cornwall has very modest development charges (none for manufacturing) and affordable land prices and competitive electrical rates.
  • Cornwall's proximity to Ottawa and Montreal provides access to a skilled workforce and world-class post-secondary education institutions including the University of Ottawa, Carleton University, McGill University, as well as Algonquin College, St. Lawrence College, and the River Institute.
