Residents who are passionate about local history are being sought by the City of Kingston to serve as volunteer City Hall tour guides for the 2019 tourist season.

Full training will be provided to all new guides who will then conduct tours between May and October with flexible weekday shifts. The City particularly encourages people multilingual in English and French or Chinese to apply.

Applications can be picked up at the Heritage Resource Centre (HRC) reception desk in City Hall or by emailing
