The City of Guelph, located in one of the strongest economic regions in the country - 100 kilometres west of Toronto, just east of Kitchener-Waterloo - is the seat of Wellington County. It is rich in culture, architecture, parks and riverside green spaces.

It is home to one of the country’s most innovative universities, the University of Guelph, and of Conestoga College. The University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University are also only 28 kilometres away.

The County of Wellington is made of two towns and five townships. It benefits from a low cost of living, beautiful surroundings and is one of the safest communities to live in Canada. A low unemployment rate and opportunities for small business entrepreneurs make Guelph Wellington a great place to live, work and do business.
