Wellington County is a county around 2,600 km in size located in the middle of Southwestern Ontario.

The majority of the population lives in the city of Guelph (which, being a city, is technically independent from the county). The rest of the county has a rural or small-town feel.

The Grand River and several of its tributaries flow through Wellington County, providing beautiful scenery and recreational opportunities, especially at Guelph, Conestogo, and Belwood Lakes (lakes created by dams for flood control), where camping, fishing, sailing, canoeing, and other activities can be done.

Limestone is to be found in much of the county. The early inhabitants of Wellington County (settlement of the county started in 1827) used this material to build many beautiful limestone buildings, especially in Guelph and Fergus, many of which remain today.
