About the City of Guelph


downtown Guelph

Located just 100km west of Toronto, the city of Guelph offers an idyllic setting for university students at any level of their academic career. Known for its small-town charm, beautiful parks and historic downtown core, the city is often noted as being one of the best – and safest – places to live in Canada. It has an entrepreneurial vibe, which is strongly connected to the core values of the College of Business and Economics. It is home to a lively community of local entrepreneurs, as well as larger corporations, including Linamar and The Co-operators. In 2016, it was recognized by the Globe and Mail as “Canada’s jobs powerhouse.” ​
