I want to thank Perspective Marketing for producing this insert to showcase all the great reasons to live, work, and do business in Guelph!

Guelph was recently ranked as the 4th best large city in Canada to start and grow a business. It’s one of Canada’s safest cities and best places to live. It’s been ranked the 3rd best city in Canada to raise a family, and one of the top 10 best places for new Canadians to live. It’s been called “Canada’s jobs powerhouse” and “the little city that could.”

Businesses who have located in Guelph rave about our city’s central location, skilled labour pool, and the outstanding research capabilities at the University of Guelph. They also applaud the cooperation and partnership they get from the City and local business support organizations such as the Chamber of Commerce and Innovation Guelph.

Guelph ticks all the right boxes when it comes to factors like competitive land and operating costs. But we also have all the intangible quality-of-life factors that businesses are looking for. Here, you’ll find big city amenities like a vibrant downtown; a beautiful performing arts centre; and a top-notch OHL team. You’ll also experience a sense of community spirit and neighbourliness you would only expect to find in a small town. It truly is the best of both worlds.

Welcome to Guelph! We hope our city can be part of your success story.

Cam Guthrie, Mayor of Guelph
