Chief Administrative Officer Andy Goldie Welcomes You To Centre Wellington
Welcome to our vibrant and growing municipality, a blend of rural and urban development set in the beautiful scenic area of the Grand and Irvine Rivers. The Elora Gorge cuts through the steep limestone cliffs offering a unique place to kayak, canoe, hike or just feast your eyes on the rugged beauty.
In 1999 the Village of Elora and the Town of Fergus amalgamated along with the Townships of Nichol, Pilkington, West Garafraxa and a portion of Eramosa forming the Township of Centre Wellington. Our current population is around 28,000.
Our urban centres contain a variety of industries and businesses and are surrounded by beautiful farming country. Our downtown areas in Elora and Fergus offer a wide array of boutiques and gift shops along with unique articles and pieces produced by local craftsmen and artisans.
Centre Wellington's website outlines the wide range of services provided through the various departments of the Township as well as the programs and events available to our visitors and local residents. Please feel free to browse through our website.
Several Festivals and Events are organized each year and we invite you to visit the Elora and Fergus Tourism website at www.elorafergus.ca for more information on things to do and see in Centre Wellington.
