April 1, 2020

Cornwall Ontario – In an ongoing effort to combat the spread of COVID-19, and to ensure compliance with direction from senior levels of government, the City of Cornwall will be extending the closure of municipal offices and recreational facilities.


The following is updated information:

  • City recreation facilities will remain closed until Monday, May 4
  • Outdoor play structures, courts, and other sports areas remain closed to the public as well.
  • Municipal offices and other facilities will remain closed to the public until further notice, and until further direction from the Province of Ontario
  • The next Council Meeting, originally scheduled for April 14, has been cancelled

While the City landfill at 2590 Cornwall Centre Road remains open, residents are encouraged to only make essential trips. The Household Hazardous Waste Depot will not open for any dates in April. This means previously scheduled depot days of April 15, 18, 22, and 25 are cancelled. Residents should keep any hazardous waste until the depot re-opens.

Parks and trails remain open for walking, but residents should do so while maintaining 2 metres between themselves and others.

Although municipal offices are closed to the public, municipal staff, including those in Cornwall Economic Development, Cornwall Tourism and and the Cornwall Business Enterprise Centre, continue to work and can be contacted by phone or email.

To learn more about how municipal services are continuing during office closures, visit, or call City Hall at 613-932-6252. For help with community resources and support, call 613-933-6282 ext. 3129.
