About Guelph Community Wellbeing Initiative
The Guelph Community Wellbeing Initiative (CWI) is a call to action. It’s part of a movement to make a better life together.
We are starting with a simple conversation. We want to bring together as many voices from all walks of life in Guelph to describe our future – a future where people care most about the things that matter in life - being safe, happy, healthy and feeling connected to the people and places around us.
Through these talks, we will put together a CWI Plan to tell us how to make decisions that help the wellbeing of people, neighbourhoods and the city as a whole.
But this is about so much more than a Plan. This is about action, and we hope that each person is inspired to do something new that contributes to our collective quality of life in Guelph. The Get Involved page has many ideas on how to get started.
The City of Guelph is leading this process, but the Guelph community will decide what wellbeing means for us and decide what we need to do to get us there.
What Does Wellbeing Mean?
Quality of life can be measured by looking at a number of things like the gap between rich and poor, how long we live, the quality of our jobs and housing, quality of air and greenhouse gas emissions, and so on.
How Can I Take Part?
There are many exciting ways for everyone to take part. Whether you are from a community group, a school, a business or just a person who lives in Guelph, there is a way for you to get involved in each of the steps of the wellbeing planning process.
Now you can help us create Guelph’s Community Wellbeing Plan.
