Alert message

Over 4.7 million individuals reside within Hawkesbury’s 100 km radius. The Quebec market is less than 5 km away and accessible by way of the Long Sault Interprovincial Bridge. The Nation’s Capital is one hour away, as is Montreal. This favourably impacts Hawkesbury in accessing a highly mobile and qualified bilingual workforce to respond to any new or established business’ labour requirements.
