is a township in south-central Ontario, Canada, located in Wellington County.
The primary communities are Elora and Fergus. The area is predominantly residential and agricultural but also includes industries such as manufacturing. Many tourists visit Centre Wellington, especially Elora, on daytrips, attracted by the historic nature of the towns or the Grand River Raceway with horse racing and slot machines. Also at the edge of town, the Elora Gorge Conservation Area often fills to capacity on summer weekends. The park offers paddleboat rentals, hiking, camp-grounds, fishing and picnicking.
Elora was founded in 1832. Although it has developed over several decades, it is more commonly known for its vintage homes and grandiose architecture. The downtown has an "artsy" vibe with its boutique shops and restaurants attracting weekend tourists from all over Ontario.
Fergus has developed into a more modern retail hub for rural consumers. Big box shopping in the suburbs has expanded the housing audience in this small but growing town. Residential housing developments continue to replace pre-existing farmland as Guelph home buyers seek more house for the money. Century homes surround the downtown core, gradually being replaced by younger construction as you move away from the centre. The Fergus farmer's market and the Scottish Highland Games still remain the most popular tourist attractions in this rural metropolis.
