Cornwall is tucked in the southeastern-most corner of Ontario, nestled alongside the majestic St. Lawrence River. With a population of just under 50,000 the city is a short hour's drive south of Ottawa, the Nation's Capital and one hour west of cosmopolitan Montreal. Cornwall combines the qualities of a smaller community with easy access to major urban centres.
Cornwall is known as the 'Friendly Seaway City' with an enviable quality of life along with an equally enviable cost of living. For example, a bungalow that costs roughly $380,000 in Toronto and $300,000 in Ottawa can be purchased for about $150,000 in Cornwall.
There is much to do in Cornwall. Each summer, the city presents Lift-Off, a hot air balloon festival, and this year's host of the Canadian Hot Air Balloon Championships in July. With its waterfront location, there are opportunities for boating and fishing and there are also a number of indoor arenas for skating and playing hockey along with ball fields and soccer pitches for participating in summer sports. World renowned Upper Canada Village is a short 30 minute drive and winding along the river's shore are 90 km of paved recreational for hiking, biking, rollerblading or a leisurely stroll.
The City's health care centre is the Cornwall Community Hospital. It is a full service, acute care hospital combining emergency, diagnostics, in-patient and day surgery, and nuclear medicine. The hospital has close ties to health care centres in Ottawa, Kingston and Montreal with available airborne medivac service. Its current needs include Anesthetists, Family Physicians, Pediatricians, and General Surgeons.
