The NAV CENTRE is truly a venue with a difference — combining the technical sophistication of a modern learning centre with the comfort and amenities of a resort hotel. Situated on 70 acres of parkland adjacent to the St. Lawrence Seaway and 40 kilometres of recreational trails, we’re located on the outskirts of Cornwall, less than an hour from Ottawa and Montreal, and five minutes from upper New York State.

As the ideal choice for your next meeting, event, training session or retreat, we can accommodate gatherings of all types and sizes. We offer:

  • 70 spacious, state-of-the-art meeting rooms (50,000 square feet)
  • the latest technologies(wireless connectivity, a full range of modern AV equipment)
  • topnotch on-site planning and logistics support
  • a top-quality food and beverage service
  • exceptional indoor recreational facilities (25-metre indoor lap pool, large fitness centre, gyms, saunas)
  • outdoor recreational offerings (soccer fields, baseball diamonds, tennis and volleyball courts)
  • 560 comfortable guest accommodations
  • a renovated 19th-century stone farmhouse perfect for smaller, more intimate functions

Going Green

We are one of the few facilities in Canada to:

Recent ‘green’ initiatives include:

  • replacing more than 2,000 incandescent light bulbs with compact-fluorescent bulbs in all guest rooms and common areas
  • recycling of all paper, glass and aluminum cans
  • implementing a plan to reduce water usage
  • planting drought-hardy shrubs on our grounds
  • encouraging our guests to ‘go green’ as well by:
    • using a single set of towels and bedding if staying fewer than five nights
    • turning off lights and climate-control systems when leaving the room
    • recycling cans, bottles and paper in containers provided throughout the facility
