Welcome to Guelph
Founded in 1827 by a Scottish novelist who planned the town's footprint in a European style, Guelph is best known for its popular university and…beer! Wellington Brewery, Canada's oldest independently owned microbrewery, and four others call Guelph home. Strong manufacturing and education sectors contribute to Guelph's low unemployment rate, which fuels a vibrant youth scene: relaxed cafes, great food, rocking pubs and hipster boutiques await. With a wealth of local history, a fantastic museum and lovely Victorian architecture, Guelph is worth a visit.
