146 war casualties honoured as of November 2018
The City is proud to announce a new veteran-named street in Guelph. Ryder Avenue was named in honour of George Thomas Ryder.
Guelph’s first known Veteran street name is McCrae Avenue, named in 1941 after World War I hero, John McCrae, and later renamed McCrae Boulevard in 1956.
Since 1990, more war casualties have been honoured by naming 75 per cent of new city streets after Veterans. To date, 151 city streets have been named after Guelph’s war heroes, people of historical significance, and City staff who died while employed by the City. If you would like further information or to suggest a street name, please contact Planning Services at 519-837-5616.
This year we are honoured to add the following street name:
