ABOUT GUELPH

Ranked as one of the Top 10 places to live in Canada, the city of Guelph is a vibrant city set in a beautiful, natural surrounding only 100 kilometers west of Toronto.

Guelph was named one of the country’s smartest communities, Canada’s volunteer capital, and one of Canada’s safest cities to live in by the Toronto Star. Guelp’s hard water is perfect for brewing beer, which has been done since the 1800’s when Sleeman’s was first established. In 2006, popular Japanese brand Sapporo acquired Sleeman and now, most is brewed right in Guelph.

The economy of Guelph is diverse and booming with the University of Guelph (best known for its science programs), bustling business section and strong industries.
