The Guelph Community Foundation

Guelph Community Foundation

Greetings! Welcome to the WRX Property Group website and blog. The past few weeks, we’ve been looking at community organizations based in and around the Waterloo Region and Wellington County. Today, we turn once more to Guelph, and more specifically, the Guelph Community Foundation. The Guelph Community Foundation will be our focus, but a brief note before diving in: Community Foundations of Canada has 191 member communities across the country (from coast to coast to coast). Through strong networking and leadership initiatives, they support Canadians in creating stronger communities; they’ve been around for nearly a century, and they collectively hold nearly $5 billion in assets. So they’ve got both a positive vision, and the means to bring it to fruition in communities large and small across the country. Alright, let’s get to Guelph!

The Elmira Maple Syrup Festival

Sticky, Sweet, and Golden Brown

If there’s one thing that Canada does better (or at least more prolifically) than any other country in the world, it’s maple syrup. Maple syrup is intertwined with our national mythology; it’s a staple for breakfast across the country (whether on pancakes, waffles, or anything else you can come up with); and what Canadian hasn’t cooled off on a hot summer’s day with a nice, cold glass of thick, sticky, 100% maple syrup?

Project READ Literacy Network

Project READ Literacy Network

The importance of quality literacy education can’t be overstated, and both the Waterloo and Wellington Regions have demonstrated their commitment to ensuring all learners have access to the resources they need. And with the wide variety of well-regarded post-secondary institutions in this area, (University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University, University of Guelph, and Conestoga College), it’s clear that learning can be a life-long pursuit.

Foodlink Waterloo Region

Foodlink Waterloo Region

It’s a good time for anyone even remotely interested in food (and because it’s mostly humans that will be reading this, and humans need food to live, you’re likely remotely interested in food by necessity). Trendy headlines come in and out of style: from avocado toast to ketogenic diets, food is fated to fads. But one thing has always been true: it’s good to buy local. Well, today, WRX Property Group is prepared to take it one step further and solemnly declare that it’s not just good to buy local – it’s grrrreat! And when it comes to local foods, inhabitants of the Waterloo Region need look no further than Foodlink Waterloo Region.

Little Libraries of KW

Little Libraries of KW

Perhaps one day, while walking or driving through Kitchener-Waterloo, you noticed an odd sight: a medium-sized wooden structure standing near the street on someone’s lawn. Perhaps you wondered to yourself what that strange structure could be: Is it a birdhouse? Is it a plain slab of wood? No, neither! What you’ve discovered is a phenomenon that’s spread throughout Kitchener-Waterloo and the broader Waterloo Region – and far, far beyond. What you’ve discovered is a Little Library. If you’ve seen one of these structures anywhere in Kitchener-Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, and the surrounding Townships, (and odds are you may have seen quite a few), then you’ve seen a ‘branch’ of the Little Libraries of Kitchener-Waterloo. We need to back up a little, though.
