Cornwall is a St Lawrence River cruise port and city in Ontario Canada (SDG/United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry) with population around 50,000. Cornwall ON is situated where the Canadian provinces Ontario and Quebec converge with the USA's New York (Massena's Rooseveltown neighborhood).
Seaway International Bridge (length 542 0ft / 1652 m) crosses the Saint Lawrence River and consists of two spans over the River/Seaway - South Channel Bridge (1958-opened) and North Channel Bridge (2014-opened, connecting Cornwall with Cornwall Island part of the Mohawk Territory/Mohawk Nation at Akwesasne). Ten Cornwall Island is connected to Rooseveltown via the Massena-Cornwall International Bridge.
Located equidistantly between Ottawa (Canada's capital, approx 64 mi / 103 km to the northwest via highway ON-138N) and Montreal (Canada's second-largest city, approx 70 mi / 114 km to the northeast via highway ON-401E). Cornwall is also part of the CN Kingston railway linking Toronto with Montreal. Due to the city's strategic position (close proximity to Canada's most important cities and also being a major port of entry from the USA), Cornwall's economy is largely based on its Port (Cornwall Harbour, locode CACWL) and supported by industries like shipping trade, transportation, logistics, and distribution as Port Cornwall Harbour (locode CACWL) is a major port of entry from the USA.
In Cornwall ON are the headquarters of SLSMC (St Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation/Authority, 1998-established Canadian nonprofit organization) which oversees the inland waterway and its shipping traffic. SLSMC also manages and operates the Crown's assets along the Seaway, including lands, canals and locks (13 of all 15) between Montreal and Lake Erie.
