Infrastructure development is the priority of this expanding city with a highway under redevelopment, and a municipal commitment to growth. Niagara College has a campus in the city’s north end, and the downtown core is alive with local business and entertainment options aplenty. This must be the festival capital of Niagara. And it is indicative of the cultural mosaic that comprises the Welland population. As well, the French speaking population is substantial with most businesses offering bilingual service. Jump on your bike and hit the Steve Bauer trail while enjoying the sights of the recreation activity on the Welland River. With the Pam Am games arriving in 2015, you’ll see a regatta, kayaking and waterfront set for major upgrades. Welland is a culture-rich community with a lot to offer to a new addition to the neighbourhood.
