Thinking about team building in Niagara? The Niagara region in Ontario is comprised of Niagara Falls, Niagara-on-the-Lake and many other great tourist towns. This region is only about an hour from the Toronto Pearson Airport and right next door to the US/Canada border which makes it convenient for Canadian and American meetings and conferences.
The Niagara area offers many great resorts and conference facilities for you to choose from. You can select from large to boutique from luxury to well-priced.
At Summit Team building we have had the pleasure of working with corporate groups large and small at many of the different conference venues in the Niagara area. Below is some information to help you plan your next meeting based on our years of experience running team building programs in Niagara.
