Being central in the Niagara Region it has easy access to all major transportation corridors. Everything from rural tranquility to urban excitement is within easy reach. "Where Rails and Water Meet" has long been the slogan for this City. Located at the mid-point of the Welland Canal, a vital link in the St. Lawrence Seaway system, with major rail lines passing through it and connected directly to main highway arteries. Welland is the place to be if you're looking for big City conveniences in a small town atmosphere.
