Unique Business Reviews & Local News

Niagara Sentinel

You can always depend on Niagara Sentinel to offer you the most up-to-date and reliable local news and business reviews. We understand that you may not always have the time to read through the local newspaper to find out what’s happening in your backyard. This is why we extract news that we believe will be of interest to most people in the Niagara, Ontario area.

We also offer you time-saving business reviews so that you can make well-informed decisions about the businesses in the area that you wish to patron. Some people are reluctant to get things done because they don’t know which business to use. We make it easier by providing you with our unbiased, honest reviews. The business reviews that we provide are unsolicited. What this means is that the businesses cannot pay us to write a review about them, this could influence the review. However, our reviews are based on the personal experiences of our reviewers. This is important to offer a fair review of the businesses in the Niagara area.
