ABOUT CENTRE WELLINGTON
The township of Centre Wellington is the largest municipality in Wellington County and one of the fastest growing communities in Ontario. Centre Wellington was formed through the amalgamation of the towns Fergus and Elora, with parts of Nichol, Pilkington, West Garafraxa and Eramos Townships. Fergus is the largest town within.
Throughout Centre Wellington are natural limestone buildings, parks, unique shops and excellent restaurants. The beauty of the region is enhanced by the strong agricultural roots in the area; the economy is heavily reliant on the surrounding farms. With an abundance of recreational opportunities, tourism is a strong force.
The Grand and Irvine Rivers creates beautiful glacier carved gorges and waterfalls. A day at the Elora Gorge can be spent swimming and hiking. Belwood Lake, another asset to the region, is perfect for fishing.
Groves Memorial Community Hospital (GMCH) is an acute care facility, located in the heart of Fergus, offering high-quality care and a wide range of services.
Physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners and other health professionals work collaboratively in the Upper Grand Family Health Team and Family Health Organization to provide comprehensive care to their patients.
