Make Wellington County Home.

Wellington County communities offer small town living and stunning natural beauty in close proximity to large urban centers like the Greater Toronto Area, Waterloo Region, and the City of Guelph. The County has been ranked amongst the top 10 safest communities in Canada, and we are close to multiple educational institutions, including the University of Guelph, University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University and Conestoga College.

We are proud of our diverse communities, and our vibrant small towns and rural environments offer a unique lifestyle with something for everyone. The County is also home to a vibrant economy, providing job opportunities in multiple industries including agriculture, manufacturing, health care and creative professional sectors. 

Whether you are a new resident or simply passing through, we hope you have a pleasant experience in our charming communities.
