City of Welland


Bridging the past, present, and future.


Welland has grown significantly in the past decade since Turtles Property opened up in 2010. The city continues to thrive today, with a slight population increase which has led to more opportunities and much more housing, with new developments and industrial spaces being built.


Homes are quick sellers here, and rental units don't usually last too long on the market. It is a great developing city to invest in.


Located in the centre of Niagara Falls, it is historically known for its steel, automotive and textile industries. Sadly, many of these industrial businesses have closed down, and there are many vacant factory buildings and lands throughout Welland.


However the City of Welland has implemented many Community Incentive Programs to revitalize the original downtown Welland core. Although it is a slow growth, progress is surely being made.
