Situated along the Grand River, just 20 minutes north of Guelph, Fergus is a quiet, residential community filled with mature tree lined streets, beautiful stone architecture, great schools and plenty of green spaces.

Fergus is home to several large manufacturers as well as a healthy agricultural industry. In the last 5 years, Fergus has started to benefit from a tourism industry like neighbouring Elora. The average household income sits comfortably just under $90,000 annually. Fergus is the largest and fastest growing community in Wellington County.
Fergus boasts a low crime rate, safe schools and streets. Residents and tourists alike enjoy the safety that small-town Ontario affords.
