2017 Report to the Community

Working together, proud to serve

The 2017 City of Guelph Report to the Community highlights how we’re working together to make lives better, build a great community, and create a solid foundation for a growing city. Our work is guided by the goals of Guelph’s Corporate Administrative Plan: financial stability, service excellence, and innovation.

Pride in public service

Whether we’re working in buses, trucks, or plows, or behind the scenes planning, training, and supporting each other, City employees work hard to make life better in Guelph. We hire talented teams to work inside and outside City Hall to design, build, and deliver programs and services that people count on every day.

Guelph employees are proud to serve our community.
