About us

The Niagara Gateway Information Centre stands to serve all FOUR Corners of the Niagara Region and represent all 12 Municipalities. 

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to educate, inform and showcase the beauty of the Niagara Region to incoming visitors, through our highly trained local guides.

The Niagara Gateway Information Centre was re-launched in May 2017 after securing a new lease in partnership with the Niagara Region and the Tourism Partnership of Niagara. Our Information Centre serves as a vital resource to our thousands of annual visitors who rely on our local guides to provide them with knowledgeable guidance as they explore all the Niagara Region has to offer.
