who reports to the Mayor and Council.
The City is responsible for revenue collection, local planning, local economic development, building permits, local water
and sewer mains, local streets, fire protection, parks and recreation, and public cemeteries. The Regional government is
responsible for regional planning, regional economic development, water and sewage treatment, major water and sewer
mains, solid waste, police, major roads and social services.
The ensuing pages present services provided for the City and the demographic characteristics of its people.
WELLAND’S LOCATION ADVANTAGE
The location of Welland is enviable in terms of business and personal fulfillment. The City is strategically and conveniently
located within Ontario’s “Golden Horseshoe” region. The Golden Horseshoe is centered by Metropolitan Toronto, which is

from Toronto via superhighways, and within thirty minutes by excellent highways from the United States’ port of entry;
Buffalo, New York.
Welland is approximately one and one-half hours by automobile from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport and fortyfive minutes from the Buffalo airport.
Welland is within 900 kilometers (500 miles) of half of the population of the United States and Canada, and 60 percent of
the North American industrial market. This market area comprises three-quarters of the purchasing power of Canada and
the United States. As well, seven of the top ten U.S. industrial states are within one day’s trucking of Welland. Welland is
closer to the bulk of the U.S. market than Florida, Texas and California!
The City’s location on the St. Lawrence Seaway links Welland to ocean ports in such places as Hong Kong, the Pacific Rim,
Europe, and North and South America. There is space on Welland’s harbor on the Welland Canal for warehousing of goods
to be loaded onto and received from ocean going ships.
Welland has rail linkage to major Canadian and U.S. centers, and its airport offers service to both business and leisure
travelers, and accommodates both freight and private jet passenger crafts on a regular basis.

units, including Canine, Auxiliary Police and Community Services. Some of the focus of the Service is on education on traffic
safety and drug awareness and these are provided to elementary and secondary schools.
Ontario Provincial Police (O.P.P.)
Ontario’s provincial highways (King’s Highway system) are patrolled by the Ontario Provincial Police. King’s Highways in
Welland are 58A, 140 and 406.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police (R.C.M.P.)

Niagara R.C.M.P. detachment covers the entire Regional Municipality of Niagara. There are sixty-five members of the

Fire and Emergency Services
The Fire and Emergency Services Department is a composite department made up of 48 career firefighters and 62
volunteer firefighters assigned to emergency response and working from five stations in the City. Additional career staff
work in fire prevention, firefighter training, and administration. The career firefighters work in 4 rotating shifts providing
24/7 availability while the volunteers are called as needed.
At fire Headquarters, the department has a Training Officer, a Director of Fire Prevention and two Fire Prevention Officers.
On the administrative side a Fire Chief, Deputy Fire Chief and two Administrative Assistants. The staff generally works
regular office hours.
Firefighters deal with more than just fires. “Suppression” staff maintain many different skills to deal with all types of
emergencies including fires of all types, hazardous material spills, specialized rescue incidents, and medical assistance
calls.
77
City of Welland COMMUNITY PROFILE 2015
A big part of our emergency call volume is responding with ambulance on medical assistance calls. Medical call volumes
are increasing every year and the department’s role in this area is also increasing. In 1996, all department apparatus were
equipped with Defibrillators. Currently all Suppression staff are trained to First Responder-Level 3.
The Training Officer prepares and ensures that appropriate training is available and is provided to all firefighters in the
Department. Skill demands on firefighters are constantly evolving which creates a challenging task to ensure that our staff
are on top of their skills at all times.
“Fire Prevention” staff provides services including public safety education, Fire Code enforcement, and fire cause
investigation. These services are a vital part of providing fire protection to the public. The principal aim is threefold; 1) To
educate the public on how to prevent fires in their homes and at work. 2) To ensure that buildings are fire safe by design
and in their use. 3) To discover how fires happened and what can be done to prevent a reoccurrence. Ironically, it is public
attitude and individual actions (or inactions) that cause the vast majority of fires.
Fire safety is in your hands. Be a part of the solution!

The focus of the Welland Heritage Council and Multicultural Centre is in language and systemic education.
Expert immigration assistance, computer training, child-minding, emergency shelter and specialized employment
assistance programs for International Professionals are other services provided at the Centre. All newcomers to
Welland and Canada are offered a helping hand to make the transition in to the Canadian lifestyle a little easier.

character by challenging our members to accept and demonstrate positive values.
