Guelph is a city in southwestern Ontario, Canada. Known as “The Royal City”. It is the seat of Wellington County, but is politically independent of it. Because of its low crime rates, clean environment and generally high standard of living, Guelph is consistently rated as one of Canada’s best places to live. Guelph has been noted as having one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country throughout the 2008–2012 global recession, and has ranked at the bottom of Canada’s crime severity list since 2007.

Before colonization, the area was considered by the surrounding indigenous communities to be a “neutral” zone. On selected dates, members from these communities would meet and trade goods by the Speed River.  Guelph was selected as the headquarters of British development firm “the Canada Company” by its first superintendent John Galt, a popular Scottish novelist.  The Canada Company established Guelph in 1827 to serve as the company’s headquarters during the development of the Huron Tract, although town later came into its own as a prosperous railway and industrial centre. Guelph was founded by the symbolic felling of a tree on St. George’s Day, April 23, 1827, the feast day of the patron saint of England. The town was named to honour Britain’s royal family, the Hanoverians, who were descended from the Guelfs, the ancestral family of George IV, the reigning British monarch; thus the nickname The Royal City.

The Sleeman Centre is a sports and entertainment venue in Guelph. The large, modern facility allows for a variety of events such as concerts, sporting and family events, trade shows and conferences, and it is home to the local hockey team, the Guelph Storm.  Guelph has a thriving indie rock scene, which has spawned some of Canada’s more well-known indie bands. Guelph is also home to the Hillside Festival, a hugely popular music festival held at nearby Guelph Lake during the summer, as well as the Guelph Jazz Festival. Guelph is also home to the Guelph Symphony Orchestra, and two yearly classical music festivals.
