City budget

At the City, our role is to deliver public services to Guelph’s growing and diverse community. Our vision is an inclusive, connected, prosperous city where we look after each other and our environment.This is and will continue to be what makes Guelph a great place to live, work, play and visit. Guided by our strategic plan and City Council direction, our budget determines how quickly we can achieve these goals.

Building a community isn’t just about building homes, and it’s not just about the people or services needed to support them. It’s how all of these things work together to support a high quality of life.
