Temporary structured encampments

The City is looking for private properties that can accommodate a temporary structured encampment

In response to an issued mayoral direction, the City of Guelph is seeking potential private properties that can be transformed to support those currently experiencing homelessness.

Sites should be able to accommodate temporary structured encampments for at least three years. Properties within one kilometre of the downtown core are ideal but not necessary.
