Cam Guthrie was re-elected Mayor of Guelph in 2018, after serving as Mayor from 2014 to 2018 and as a Councillor for Ward 4 from 2010 to 2014.

Cam was a licensed insurance broker and local entrepreneur for 16 years before becoming Mayor. An avid community volunteer, Cam has served on the Boards of several local not-for-profit organizations, and he has mentored startups and small business owners through the Business Centre of Guelph-Wellington. He holds a business diploma from Sir Sandford Fleming College. In 2008, the Guelph Mercury named him one of the city’s top “40 Under 40.”

An accomplished drummer, Cam has been a member of local bands, played on several studio recordings, and produced or co-produced several albums. He is also a loyal fan of the Guelph Gryphons, the Guelph Storm, and the Guelph Royals.

Cam’s roots in Guelph stretch back to 1919, when his great-grandfather founded Guthrie’s Bakery on Quebec Street in downtown Guelph. Cam and his wife Rachel are proud parents of two children, Anakin and Adelaide.
