Cornwall Ontario — The Cornwall Business Enterprise Centre, the Cornwall and Area Chamber of Commerce and the SD&G Community Futures Development Corporation, invite you to join us at the next monthly Breakfast Connections event to be held at the Ramada Inn on May 15th, 2013 at 7:30 am.
The May edition of Breakfast Connections will focus on Ontario’s Accessibility Standard for Customer Service. It is not about physical changes to your premises — it’s simply about providing good customer service to everyone.
