CORNWALL, Ont. — Another Ontario municipality is considering introducing a hotel tax.
The City of Cornwall’s economic development department is proposing a four-per-cent hotel tax, with the revenues raised supporting the city’s tourism promotion efforts and tourism industry, according to Cornwall Standard Freeholder.
Economic Development division manager, Bob Peters, said his department has met with the province and most hotel owners in town about the implementation of an accommodation tax in Cornwall. A proposal will be brought to council for consideration in the next few weeks with the intention of having the tax in place by the middle of the year.
