Perch Magazine Celebrates Summer with Fourth Edition

Cornwall Ontario – Perch, a small, independent, semi-annual magazine that curates all things cool and creative in Cornwall and area, is back to welcome summer with its fourth edition.

“The stories in the magazine reflect who we are, while at the same time owning where we live,” said Chantal Tranchemontagne, Editor-In-Chief. “I am overwhelmed by the talent, the creativity, the work ethic, and the positivity that we have built and continue to build in our region.”

The Spring/Summer 2019 issue includes a list of local business owners like Ian Bristow of We Do Printing Letterpress Studio, an artisanal printer that uses a 1950s letterpress machine to create custom artwork with a vintage look and feel. Others like Lisa Delorme and Kristy Wieber of Rent Frock Repeat, are growing their designer-dress-on-demand service by revamping their clothing line to include pieces work or the weekend. The successful businesses featured in this magazine point to a noticeable trend of business growth in our region.

The magazine was launched at an outdoor party held under the stars in the exercise yard of the SDG Historic Jail. Enthusiastic patrons anxious for a first look at the magazine filled the new event space to capacity.

“We’re thrilled to have a packed house filled with people supporting independent journalism,” said Ms. Tranchemontagne. “Our readers, our contributors, our sponsors and supporters—they’re the ones that motivate us to keep publishing Perch .”

People can read all four issues online at The latest edition has a limited print run of 750 hard copies, printed by Cornwall City Press. Copies will soon be available in print at distribution points in Cornwall, Akwesasne and the SDG Counties. You can also follow the magazine on Facebook at
