CORNWALL – CITY OF OPPORTUNITY – 1967

Over the years Cornwall has boasted of being the “Friendly City,” and the “Seaway City” and the “Factory Town”.   Each of the slogans has been, and even today, is appropriate to the City.

Many of the attributes that make our city attractive to the visitor and tourist are in a comparative way the advantages that are considered acceptable to industry.

The geographic location of Cornwall in relation to the major population centres of our metropolitan Canadian cities has proved beneficial for the attraction of many industries.

The complete variety of transportation media and facility apply equally to tourist and industry.  Good roads and highways, rail and bus services, nearby airfields for the small plane enthusiast, and the mighty St. Lawrence Seaway for watercraft of any type and description are competitively available.

The friendly Cornwall citizens present a melding of our two founding races, British and French, who provide a trainable and highly productive labour force for manufacturing industry.
