Old Quebec Street Shoppes
Celebrating our 14th anniversary!
The eMERGE EcoMarket is a sustainability expo showcasing environmental organizations, products and services. It attracts up to 6,000 people looking for ways to fight climate change, reduce their impact on the environment and save money.
Located in Downtown Guelph’s Old Quebec Street Shoppes (map), the EcoMarket is open to the public and free of charge.
Join us to discover everything from electric vehicles to low flush toilets! Engage with activist groups, learn about new environmental initiatives, interact with sustainable technology, ask questions, and support local businesses!
Do gas prices have you down? When active or public transport aren’t an option, and with gas prices becoming unaffordable, electric vehicles (EVs) are an excellent alternative. Learn about electric vehicle ownership at this year’s eMERGE EcoMarket. It will familiarize you with a variety of EVs and provide you with the opportunity to ask owners questions about their vehicles.
We celebrate coming together as a community to fight climate change.
eMERGE Guelph Sustainability fights climate change to build a healthier society. It does this by helping people reduce energy and water use through its education and awareness programs. eMERGE promotes and supports sustainable behaviour for individuals while working on a larger scale to implement environmental policies.
Promoting smart behaviour, policy and improved efficiency helps Guelph build a road map to achieve 100% renewable energy long before 2050. This has the added benefit of a healthier community and a more resilient local economy.
