The City of Cornwall has a unique geographic location at the convergence of the Ontario, Quebec and New York State borders. It shares its southern border with the Mohawk Nation of Akwesasne, and Cornwall is one of 14 Ontario border crossings between Canada and the United States.

Cornwall continues to evolve as revitalization projects, environmental initiatives and new business activities combine to improve local economy.
The current Township of North Glengarry was created in January 1998 by amalgamating the former townships of Kenyon and Lochiel with the villages of Maxville and Alexandria. The township is the industrial and commercial hub of the area with large industries. In addition to those industrial jobs are countless farms that span the township, providing numerous agricultural jobs.

North Glengarry is one of the 6 townships in the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, located just north of the City of Cornwall. It traces its rich historical roots to the second half of the 18th Century.

French Canadian farmers entered the mix and both Canada’s founding cultures are seen and heard all over the township.

The Akwesasne Territory is geographically unique, having an International Border running through our Territory and further to that, having the two provinces of Quebec and Ontario within the Canadian side of Akwesasne, where, the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne, is the elected system of government.
The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne is composed of twelve District Chiefs and a Grand Chief. The twelve District Chiefs are representatives of the three Districts, namely, TsiSnaihne, Kanatakon, and Kawehnoke. Each of these three Districts have four elected Chiefs, and the Grand Chief is elected by all three Districts.
Council’s goal is to protect what rights we have now, and to negotiate the acknowledgement from outside governments of Akwesasne’s jurisdiction, in areas such as but not limited to, Governance, Justice, Law-making, Economic Development, and Environment.
