Wards[edit]

Guelph is divided up into six wards, or sections. The areas east of and including most of downtown and the area east of the University of Guelph are considered Ward 1. The areas northeast of downtown are considered Ward 2, Ward 3 is in the central and some of the north ends, and Ward 4 is in the northwest end of the city. Ward 5 is the area south of downtown and north of Stone Road. This ward includes the University and Stone Road Mall. Finally, Ward 6 is better known as the "south end" of Guelph. This ward is south of Stone Road and, in recent years, has seen rapid residential development.
