Cornwall Ontario – Finding visitor information is now easier than ever before.

Cornwall Tourism Mobile Ambassador

Cornwall Tourism has implemented three brand new ways of making visitor information available to residents and visitors alike.  Although COVID-19 has put a bit of a damper on the tourism industry and on traditional ways of providing visitor information, Cornwall Tourism has  come up with creative ways of accessing visitor information.

In addition to, calling or stopping by, you can now get information on what’s going on and what to see and do in 3 new ways.

“We are excited about our new services and are positive it will make sharing information with visitors and residents easier and more effective” says Kevin Lajoie, Tourism Officer for the City of Cornwall. “Not only does this allow us to be in more places at one time, but we can also track data that will assist us in growing and rebuilding the tourism industry, an essential piece of the local COVID recovery plan.”

Mobile Tourism Ambassador

Meet Olivia along the Waterfront Trail! The Cornwall Tourism mobile ambassador is a new position for the tourism summer student.  Olivia will be rolling along the Waterfront Trail as well as downtown offering visitor information, holding special giveaways and attending special events.  With increased interest in cycling, Cornwall Tourism is meeting more tourists where they are, rather than making them come to them. Follow Olivia’s adventures on the Cornwall Tourism Instagram stories and find out where she will be popping up next.

Call or TEXT

Need some quick info? Just shoot Cornwall Tourism a text at 613-938-4748. Adding the text services allows staff to quickly and easily connect with tourists looking for more information while they are out and about the community. The new text service also allows the Cornwall Tourism office to respond to queries outside of regular business hours making it a much more tourist friendly way of discovering what to do next.

Visit a Tourism Ambassador Business

A number of businesses throughout Cornwall have signed up to be certified tourism business ambassadors, recognizable by a badge placed on the front door.  These ambassador businesses are equipped with informative materials, up to date details on what’s going on and just a general passion to help promote our beautiful city. You will find the ambassador decal in several downtown businesses, hotels and attractions.

Locals and tourists are encouraged to take advantage of the many ways to access information on what’s going on, and make the most of your time in Cornwall.
