Guelph ( Canada 2011 Census population 121,668)is a city in southwestern Ontario, Canada. Known as “The Royal City”, Guelph is roughly 28 kilometres (17 mi) east of Waterloo and 100 kilometres (62 mi) west of downtown Toronto at the intersection of Highway 6 and Highway 7. It is the seat of Wellington County, but is politically independent of it. Because of its low crime rates, clean environment and generally high standard of living, Guelph is consistently rated as one of Canada’s best places to live. Guelph has been noted as having one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country throughout the 2008–2012 global recession,[6] and has ranked at the bottom of Canada’s crime severity list since 2007.

The name Guelph comes from the Italian Guelfo and the Bavarian-Germanic Welf. It is a reference to the reigning British monarch at the time Guelph was founded, King George IV, whose family was from the House of Hanover, a younger branch of the House of Welf. In Italy, during the late Medieval period and up until the 15th century, a conflict between the Guelfi neri, the Guelfi bianchi, and the Ghibellines ensued throughout the Italian peninsula. The Guelfi were named after an aristocratic family that ruled various parts of Europe at different times.
