Welcome to Guelph!
Thank you for choosing the County of Wellington as your new home!
As Warden of this great community, let me tell you that you’ve made a wonderful choice. The County is a great place to live, work and raise a family. I know! I’ve lived and worked in this community for almost 30 years. Our family enjoys all that the County has to offer, including its historic and natural beauty. It also has a vibrant economy, is one of the safest communities in Canada, and is uniquely positioned geographically to provide easy access to major centres such as Toronto and offers a number of post-secondary institutions at our doorstep.
Our greatest asset is our people and your neighbours, and we all look forward to welcoming you to your new community.
The County offers excellent community services and programmes, and I encourage you to take advantage of our newcomer settlement service programmes as well as our employment and business services. Please visit our website at www.wellington.ca for more information about how we can assist you in your transition.
We recognize the tremendous assets that newcomers bring to all of our communities in Wellington County. Your skills and knowledge as a productive worker, business owner or investor contributes to our economic development and enriches our community by infusing a cultural diversity and vitality that benefits us all.
Welcome to the County of Wellington! Take every opportunity to explore your new community and I am confident that you will come to love it as much as I do.
Warden, County of Wellington
