Guelph has been consistently ranked as one of the best places to live and work in Canada.
The city has a high quality of life, diverse economy, and an ideal location that’s minutes from Highway 401. It’s also along the Innovation Corridor, a large cluster of tech companies, that stretches from Toronto to Waterloo Region.
Guelph offers a nice blend of city and small-town life. You can choose from the family friendly neighbourhoods of Hanlon Creek, Waverly, Westminster Woods and Kortright Hills, all of which have good schools and ample green spaces. Our Western Financial Group insurance expert will get the right insurance for you at the right value.
If you like nature, Guelph has plenty to enjoy. There’s boating and fishing on the Speed River and the Eramosa River. There’s also the University of Guelph Arboretum, near the university’s campus featuring plant collections, gardens, walking trails, natural woodlands, wetlands, and meadows.
Do you know why Guelph is called the Royal City? City founder John Galt chose the name Guelph for the new town because it was one of the family names of the British royal family, and it had apparently never been used as a place name before. So that’s why it’s called the Royal City.
Royal City Park is close to the city’s downtown. Walkers, hikers, joggers, and bikers use the trails along the water. If you like fishing, you can do so along the banks and off Gow's bridge.
If education is a priority for you and your family, Guelph has good elementary and high schools. The University of Guelph is a top-flight school. There’s a Guelph campus of Conestoga College, too.
You and the kids can also visit the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada, a short drive from Guelph.
