Cornwall (2006 population: 4,677) is a Canadian suburban town located in Queens County, Prince Edward Island.

The town is located immediately west of the provincial capital Charlottetown and functions as a bedroom community.

The community of Cornwall traces its history to European settlement in the 1700s and was a predominantly farming community until the construction of Route 1, the Trans-Canada Highway, during the early 1960s. Several subdivisions were created near the intersection of the new highway with the Meadowbank Road, along with a small commercial strip.

The present town was incorporated by the provincial government in 1995 through municipal amalgamation which saw the following unincorporated rural communities merged:
* Cornwall
* North River
* Elliot River
* East Wiltshire

The amalgamation was not without controversy, given that the name of the community of Cornwall would survive, while the others were dissolved. Residents of North River and other communities being subsumed had called for a new community name, as what occurred in the case of Stratford (also amalgamated at the same time).
