Guelph 190 canada 150

2017 is a monumental year both locally and nationally. Throughout the year, celebrations of Guelph’s 190 year have been taking place alongside the celebrations of the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation.

Guelph 190

Guelph was founded in 1827 and since then it’s grown into a vibrant community full of creativity, innovation, drive and some of the nicest people you will ever meet. The Royal City has been listed as a top place to live as well as a great place to purchase real estate.

This Summer there are lots of opportunities to celebrate.
