Guelph City Hall is the seat of local government in Guelph, Ontario, Canada.

Designed by Moriyama & Teshima Architects and completed in 2009, the new City Hall is located adjacent to the historic Old City Hall, which itself is now serving as a Provincial Offences Courthouse. Prior to the construction of the new City Hall, municipal departments had been spread across five different downtown locations.[2] The Guelph Memorial Gardens arena was demolished to make way for the new civic building.[3]

The City Hall was built to meet the LEED Silver standard set out by the Canada Green Building Council. As a result, operating costs are 30 to 40 percent lower than that of a similarly-sized typical office building.[1]
