With the Organizations recent launch of their new identity, The Great Waterway has developed an outstanding media campaign and marketing strategy to move forward and achieve the goals of the organization.
Steeped in history, The Great Waterway offers something new for everyone to explore and enjoy. Inspired by the original Mohawk name ‘Kaniatarowanenneh’ (big water), this beautiful stretch of Ontario is entirely linked by water – from Cornwall on the St. Lawrence River to Lake Ontario’s Kingston and on to Belleville on the Bay of Quinte. In between, The Great Waterway is dotted by the Rideau Lakes and winds its way north along the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Rideau Heritage Route. www.thegreatwaterway.com
