Friends of the Unemployed, Needy and Dispossessed

Abbeyfield Houses Society of Guelph is the incorporated charity which sponsors Fresh Start Housing Centre, Our Place Youth Centre and the Baker Street Art Gallery. This sponsorship is conducted through an operating component known as Abbeyfield Guelph FUND .

 

Abbeyfield Houses Society of Guelph purchased, upgraded and renovated the property at 40 Baker Street to provide a home for Freshstart and Our Place Youth Centre and the Baker Street Art Gallery – and as well now provides a home to other separately incorporated charitable organizations such as Ed Video, Chalmers Community Service Centre, Room For Us (Wellington) and Matrix Affordable Homes. As commercial tenants these latter organizations provide a sustainable economic base which in turn permits Abbeyfield Guelph FUND to act as an incubator for programs such as Fresh Start, Our Place Youth Centre, Our Shelter Network, and the Baker Street Art Gallery.

Ontario Court of Justice Provincial Offences Court

59 Carden St. • 519-826-0762

Since May 29, 2000, the City of Guelph has been responsible for the administration and prosecution of most provincial offence charges issued within Guelph-Wellington. The City provides administration for the Ontario Court of Justice with respect to all provincial offences and prosecution services regarding Part I Provincial Offences Act charges ("tickets"). These charges include tickets issued pursuant to the Highway Traffic Act, Liquor Licence Act and similar provincial statutes.

This transfer of responsibilities from the province to the municipality ensures that local governments have more responsibility for justice that impacts the local communities. Further, the public can be assured of a high level of quality service at the local level.

It is important to note that the function of the judiciary and the provision of justice in the Ontario Court of Justice in Guelph-Wellington are not in any way affected by this transfer of responsibility.
